However, I also read all the above comments, which not only stole valuable seconds from my life without enriching my experience of the world one iota, but also compelled me to write this reply and thus throw away even more precious moments of the fleeting, too-brief time allotted to me on this earth.
See you bastards in court.
Oh wait... yeah, I just remembered the Skepchicks too. Well, there goes that theory.
(Great post, by the way.)
But yes, this is another tedious point we seem to have to keep explaining. The author of that article doesn't like Chick tracts because they make God seem "cruel and capricious". I find the Bible does that just as well. Also, I'm not sure if he's making much of a distinction between moral justification and logical justification. The god of the Bible (along with many others) seems, to me, both morally abhorrent and empirically unsupported. It's not just that I'm choosing not to believe because he doesn't seem very nice.
However, having read a bit more about this guy, in particular PZ's latest, I am becoming increasingly convinced that his credibility is significantly impaired where it counts. I'm still not sure I'm convinced it makes Obama a bigger idiot than Sylvia Allen, but I'm coming around to Collins being a bad choice.
