Do repost your proof of atheism.
If I may add my comments. There are several proofs of atheism. 1) The lack of evidence for any gods, 2) The problem of evil/suffering, 3) The inconsistency of revelations, being some of the main ones.

Yes... that is **exactly** what he's claiming.

He really is an idiot-- not worth the bother.

It's a display of his extreme jealousy of me: he knows I'm roughly 10 times smarter and better educated that he'll ever even dream of.

So he chose a sitcom character who **is** 10 times smarter and better educated than he is.

Which is kinda sad, really-- a fictional character who is **smarter** than a Hunts could ever wish to become.

Of course, he's quite used to thinking about fictional characters, what with his Jewsus being one too.
