"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

A visitor wrote "It's pretty worthless to try and unbrainwash the brainwashed, especially if their lives are swell just how it is."
Worthless to try and unbrainwash the brainwashed?
Perhaps that's true.
Especially if their lives are swell just how it is?
The atheist wimp who wrote this seems to forget a few things, like the 9/11/2001 religious atrocities, the daily religious suicide bombings, the never ending religious war against science education in America, the religious indoctrination (brainwashing) of innocent children, and the reputation America has thanks to its Christian population (the USA is called Idiot America for a good reason).
Christian assholes may be enjoying their magical fantasy world, they may be having fun destroying the minds of their own children, they may enjoy yelling at biology teachers to defend their dead Jeebus, they may not care that their cowardly heaven belief makes terrorism possible, but should normal people be happy for these assholes, or should normal people be fed up with our terrible science education and a world infested with religious terrorists?
My target audience is young people who may not yet be totally brainwashed. I know Christianity is almost always an incurable mental illness, but countless thousands (or millions?) of Christians have thrown out their medieval death cult, so it's totally wrong to say my effort here is worthless.
The atheist wimp also accused me of being angry, as if not liking assholes is a bad thing. Look it, this is just a blog. Just because I spend my time telling the truth about religious scum doesn't mean I spend my whole life doing that. I work with god-soaked Christians. I get along with them just fine. Am I angry at them? Of course not. Do I think they're nuts? Yes I do, and if I ever get the opportunity to help them I will do that.
You know who is worse than Christian assholes and Muslim terrorists? It's the atheist wimps who suck up to them. They are just as much a part of the religious insanity problem as the Bible thumpers. If I'm angry at anyone, it would be the wimpy atheists who don't care about terrorism and who don't care about the Christian war against science education. They can do what they want, but these worthless wimps have a lot of nerve to tell me what to do.
