So if as a new atheist you've at one time or another used this idiotic mythical claim, please stop.

And please stop equivocating when someone asks you the direct question - ARE YOU AN ATHEIST?
That fallacious rhetorical tactic is getting really old.


Yes...I AM a proud, card-carrying atheist, and I HAVE used that so-called tactic before.
I also, even AFTER reading your proffered linked article...stand by it. Well, at least a slightly-tweaked, altered version of it.

Here is my current claim: As far as a personal, biblical, caring, loving, prayer-hearing God...then yeah, a good 90% of men and women who are professional scientists in the STEM fields DO NOT believe in him.

Here's what you don't know and what your article conveniently omitted: the sort of "god" that MOST hard-science guys MIGHT give a bit of credence or possibility to is NOT that aforementioned type of deity. Hardly. Rather, they think there might be a sort of impersonal, NON-loving, Universal Intelligence. Call it, maybe, an infinite mind. A Dynamic of Order. This WAS the sort of "god" that guys like Einstein referred to when he said "God does not play dice with the Universe."

Rest assured Einsteins was NOT speaking, nor did he remotely believe in a Yahweh-type god.

Hope this helps.
