"There is a lot of hate in the Atheist community and a lot of pain. It manifests itself in ugly ways. Dwelling every day on the stupidity of zealots and the horrors of the religious past is not a healthy way to live out your non-belief. There are…"
"Intuitively it makes sense...but you'd have to do a lot of investigation and sound statistical analysis to work it out. I would imagine you would need a pretty large team working round the clock for a pretty long time to say this with…"
