  1. If he truly does not care, why is he spending so much time and energy on trying to change their minds?

  2. All atheists have to do is create an bus ad and the religious community (NP especially) gets all angry about it. What should be less controverial than "Extraodinary claims require extraordinary proof"? If I could needlepoint I'm make it into a throw cushion.

  3. Michael,
    You know the existence of God can neither be proven nor disproven scientifically. Charles Lewis is merely alluding to the fact that believers should not need to prove anything to others. Their beliefs are theirs, just as yours are your own. The bus ads are confrontational... so in a nice way, Lewis is asking atheists to mind their own business.

  4. Believers should not have to prove their beliefs, nor should they require than anyone else prove their non-beliefs. If they don't want an argument from those who disagree with them on religion, they should not be bringing religion into the conversation at all.

    The bus ads are confrontational? What do you call proselytizing?

    Atheists would mind their own business if they weren't being constantly beset by born-agains or other "messengers of gods" who call them names and insult their intelligence with prognostications of dire consequences for not drinking the religious koolaid. Those bus ads are a response to discrimination and bully behavior from others.

    Lewis needs to be taking his own advice.

  6. Take your ball and go home. No one will miss you. It was a cheap, second rate ball, even when it was new and no one even remembers how long ago that was.
