Although the article somewhat addresses some of the problems of this religion, i.e., it's negativity, intimidation, and carrot and stick approaches, it never really addresses why some people are atheists. It's still a unproven myth.

People are atheists because they are honest enough to say that they do not have any reason to believe in fables. No rational adult really believes but are victims of a Pascals Wager like attitude. It is easier to say that you believe than to ask questions.
