"No. N-n-n-n-no. Itís not fair that people who canít defend their own nonsense get to create a fake fair and balanced argument, the way they do when asserting that evolution and creationism are equally valid ... when it comes to religion, weíre not two sides of the same coin and you donít get to put your un-reason up on the same shelf with my reason.

Thatís not atheism."
