Quote from article: "Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism. In it, he argued that the absence of a father or the presence of a defective father (say, a weak, cowardly father or an abusive father) often played a major role in the development of the atheism of the child (or grownup). A similar argument was made by journalist John P. Koster, Jr., in his 1989 book The Atheist Syndrome." Unquote.

Non-believers aren't morally inferior to religionists.

Religionists are confused by every question under the sun. This article seems to suggest the reason so many people under 30 doubt the existence of a god isn't due to the fact there is no evidence of a god but because a higher proportion of under-thirties are perceived to be fatherless than in the past!!

Religion apparently damages a person's ability to reason.

Religion = superstition

It's 2012 and religion has had its day.

More "roboblogger" bullshit.

Why does "roboblogger" post pro-christard bullshit here while pro-atheism articles NEVER appear in the christard forum?

The alleged "moderators" have never answered that question.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
