I thought Dawkins was a biologist, not a philosopher. As for Maher, he's one of those who claim that to be an atheist, you have to claim to know 100% certain that there is no god. So he calls himself an agnostic. His use of the terms "agnostic" and "atheist" jibe with common thought, but not with what most atheists I know of actually use. I get the idea that he wants doesn't want the negatives attached to the word atheist. At least I'm glad he hasn't used "freethinker" - with his anti-vax and conspiracy lunacy (positive on the first, IIRC on the second), he is far from a rationalist.

Maher is not really too knowledgeable about a lot of things. His confusion of atheism with what is more or less a "strong atheistic" position of denial rather than lack of belief is one part. His anti-vax lunacy is another. I think there are more crazy beliefs he has, but I am not sure, so I'll stop with the two that I am aware of.

Re: #74 (I think) - I have had a dyson for about a month and have no loss of suckage. The thing would make a great creationist (sorry, not meant to insult the fine Dyson machine or its makers).

Over at the Atheist Experience blog (http://atheistexperience.blogspot.com/2008/06/holy-crap-is-he-really-this-stupid-is.html) there is some evidence that this fellow is involved in some pretty reprehensible (and some laughable) actions. You got to read it to get an idea of how unhinged this is. He even mentions this thread as part of the evil, disreputable, insulting actions against him by us evil atheists.

To be honest, as soon as I saw the argument from incredulity as the first, absolutely-most-stunning-fantastic-argument-that-prove-atheists-wrong point, well, I stopped reading. Anyone who thinks that is the best evidence isn't worth the read.

Yawn.

I pretty much stopped reading when they said it was shown to be a fraud 20 years ago. It was shown to be a fraud by the Catholic Church hundreds of years ago - way back when it first was produced. I think this shroud has been resurrected more than their god.
