Regarding my previous post, Irishfarmer (who is apparently called Phil) responded to my question. It’s a long answer so I won’t excerpt it, at the risk of mis-representing his views. Just passing it along.
Also, I meant no offense for the title of my post; in my effort to be succinct I may have left out an important caveat; Irishfarmer/Phil is attacking those he sees as “fundamentalist” or “militant” atheists.
My last word on the topic for now is that it appears Irishfarmer/Phil and I will likely have to agree to disagree.
