Andrew Brown, writing in the Guardian, notices some interesting stuff about belief and disbelief, and nearly gets it right. Alas, no–but it is instructive to look at the interesting stuff, though. There are as many atheisms as there are gods. We spend most of our lives disbelieving in things without wasting time asking why, and …

An Atheist Town Council Prayer

The town of Greece, NY, as a result of their recent court decision, is going to have a town council opening prayer delivered by an atheist.

Templeton Funded Research Finds Science & Religion Compatible (or, that evangelicals have their own definition of “science”)
