← IN FULL: Atheist in memory lapse and slavery shock

Reading some of the comments on the New Statesman page makes me want to tear my hair out.

It's amazing how many people still get their knickers in a twist (that's a phrase you don't hear often these days) over the semantics of this topic: whether or not "atheism" is a religion, or that it's "irrational to be an atheist; agnosticism is the only sensible view", and so on.

I think, like the claim that atheists are "intolerant, militant, etc" it's just another attempt to distract from the main arguments.
