I do not see 'truth' as 'vulgar', but I can see it as non-validating.
At times I wonder of 'faith' is that last stand against raw fact. Like a frog grabing the throat of a large bird before the frog is consumed, that last act of defiance, before reality settles the issue of delusions of immortality.
I agree that atheists need to get their houses in order before arrogantly claiming they have superior logical faculties. I know an atheist that believes in spirits and I bump into anti-vaccers on the net.
The anti-vacciners I run into tend to be Religious Right Wing nuts..
It is possible that atheism is in some cases just as faith based as a religion would be. At the same time, it requires a whole heck of a lot more effort to continue to say “No” when saying “Yes” is so much more popular. Even further beyond that, there are a great many people who just can’t be bothered to care about the religious debate and just want everyone involved to just stfu and get on with their lives.
