Awh buddy, you are half correct. ‘We’ are stupid, but ‘we’ are also very smart (simult). Any who, some peeps are saying that 9/11 is the birth of the Mighty New Atheists. If anything ‘good’ has come from this horrible horrible dookie-ness, it is that The New Atheists (that’s us, buddy) have evolved the conversation. At one time religion was exempt form criticism, now ‘they’ are fair game (thanks Four horsemen). Religion is in the news all the time in every major newspaper all across the country and TNA’s appear in the comments sections tearing it up for every article that is published.

Awesome buddy. I haven’t heard of that essay by that Spanish Journalist soz I’ll check it out. Keep up the good work, buddy,

Hi Sexy Kris,
Thanks for your thoughts:) I agree that there has been a silver lining to the cloud: a backlash against religion.

I found your “All European Life Died in Auschwitz” link to be both racist and offensive. Are you going to blame me for the slave trade next? I think that what happened at Auschwitz, and at Treblinka, Majdanek, Sobibor and Belzec, was one of the lowest points in the history of humanity, but I wasn’t even born, so I accept no responsibility. And what is the relevance to atheism? 9/11 wasn’t a religious issue; it was a terrorist issue. Religion was merely the excuse.

Fortunately, I was already an atheist before visiting your site, because I don’t think you’d have persuaded me. I like to think that my essay Knowledge or Certainty would be more persuasive, although as you probably already realize, you can’t reason with a theologue.

@Dennis, what does this have to do with race? If you don’t know what “racism” means, you shouldn’t hurl the accusation at me.
There is no “real” relevance to atheism. The article helped cement for me that Islam itself is a problem, a stance shared by the most prominent atheists today.

Welcome to Gabbin' About God, sponsored by Ace Religious Supplies, where they say, “If we don't got it, it ain't holy.”

Just kidding. This is Not My God, a site for the personal aspect of atheism. I'm putting together a book with that title, having already 20 interviews lined up, but I still want to hear from more of you.
I've expanded the blog to include material not related to atheism, including rants, raves, consumer issues, curmudgeonly matters and other miscellany.
