David S. replied to Unseen's discussion 'Atheists who still hang on to metaphysical thinking'
"Thank you for addressing this.  I see many atheists perfectly willing to dismiss Christianity, Islam, etc., but somehow sympathize with Buddhism.  I can understand that perhaps from an ethical perspective (i.e. - the "Five…"
