I really was hoping he was a closet atheist.

He almost seems to have given in to the deluded masses just to feel part of something. Cant understand that.

Even so, still miles better than the last chap...

@Viktor

Yes I agree with what you're saying and have it seen done many times.

My father In-Law is a devout Christian, but not a YEC, he thinks the fundies are bonkers aswell. He sometimes looks through my reading material when he comes to visit, he's borrowed a book on Neanderthals and Stephen Hawking's new book The Grand Design. I told him Hawkins book is quite anti religion, but he didn't seem to mind. All of that I find encouraging. But then every now and then he comes out with these 'Gems'. His lates one is he thinks quantum entanglement (and the property of seemingly transferring information faster than light) explains how God can communicate with everyone, and be everywhere at the same time. I just smile politely, I think its not worth getting into an argument, I don't even think he knows I'm an Atheist. My wife wouldnt tell him, she thinks its something I should best keep to myself...

I do find it all quite frustrating, I get very excited about LHC discoveries and a good talk or book about the wonders of it all. Im a big fan of Richard Fyneman, Brian Greene and obviouly Dawkins, Hitchins and Harris. But it frustrating that when you share your enthusiasm for it all, and start talking about it, most people, even the ones you thought were Atheist, turn out to have a belief in a supernatural entity, because for me that just puts a big damper on it all, and all I want to do is let out a big sigh, and grab the nearest lager.

Anyway, just a few of my thoughts and frustrations, so coming here to this website, although (as mentioned above) is a bit embarrassing, I find it's a fix I quite regularly need, just to confirm I'm not a nutty conspiracy theorist type but rather an open minded sort of type, I hope....

So thank you all..

ps. this is a real gem

ps. just ignore all the crackers comments, and there are quite a few.

all the best
