Like Daniel Davies, I find the gleeful aggression of Hitchens and Dawkins and Harris a bit tiresome. But then I see things like this and I want to pick up the nearest book of Biblical contradictions and start hectoring theists for a coherent chronology of Easter:


After "moral depravity" comes rebellion, superficiality, error ("Some argue that atheism partly stems from a failure to fairly and judiciously consider the facts"), state churches (the government really can screw anything up, can't it?), "poor relationship with father," and lots more. As Daniel DeGroot notes, you've got to wonder which "unreasonable" explanations they rejected when formulating that entry. Meanwhile, Conservapedia also informed me that "according to Munich theologian Wolfhart Pannenberg 'Atheism as a theoretical position is in decline worldwide.'"

Well! If Wolfhart Pannenberg says so...
