Go to: Bowling for Atheists: Haiti Proves that Nonbelievers Care Too

In my opinion, humility while donating is a non-virtue. Kinda like chastity. Promotions like this can encourage more donations and that is a good thing only.

It's amazing how some people find it so easy to make the logical jump from "The Universe is mysterious and there are some great forces at work" to "Therefore, there must be a personal God and Jesus is the Lord". "

You've hit the nail on the head there.

>>This is inaccurate. Probability does not work like that. If we have two possibilities, and are unaware of the probability of either, or have no evidence for either, then that still in no way makes the equally likely. It only makes us unaware of the likelihood.<<

Actually, probability does work like that. Saying two mutually exclusive hypotheses are assigned 50% probability each is exactly right if we have no information relevant to choosing between the two.

Go to: The Boundaries of Belief

>>Isn't lack of belief in the Biblical God a poor way to identify atheists? By that criteria, Muslims are atheists, as are diests who believe an "intelligent agent" initiated the big bang and pantheists who believe God is synonymous with the cosmos. Belief that the Bible is the word of God is an even worse measure of theism.<<

The survey was intended to be taken by Christians and Atheists only.
