February – Electric Chair

Those who follow Pharyngula, the science blog of P.Z. Meyers, will have seen regular postings from fans entitled “Why I am an atheist.” In reading them, and similar missives over the years, I have noticed a very common thread – anger at religion. They go on at length about religious atrocities, inconsistencies in holy books, and various indignations at a god they don’t believe in. Is this the best that people can come up with? I am often mad at the way our government does things (regardless of which party is in power), but I don’t want to tear the whole thing down and live without the benefits that our society derives from it. Just being mad at something is not a good enough reason to ditch it, or even say that it’s wrong. There must be a decent basis to propose an alternative.
