Casper also implies that nue atheists believe,

that bringing a child up within a faith is tantamount to child abuse, or that moderate religious believers are worse than fundamentalists because they prepare the ground for extremism...

I can't remember anyone saying these things.

I get pretty sick of the "theologically illiterate" argument as a means of discrediting people who don't believe in a particular religion or dismiss the existence of God.

Life is short, and there will always be plenty of things in the world we will not have studied.

I freely admit that I am completely incapable of drawing up an astrology chart, either western or Chinese, even if I had all the charts in front of me.

Does this mean I am unqualified to comment on the wisdom of using astrology for making important life choices?
