Very pointed questions in the NBC segment “united in unbelief”, makes one feel a bit odd that they seriously think this. It’s good that the idea of letting children decide their own beliefs is expressed, but again they try to shoehorn a presumably theistic psychologist into it.


The video clip was interesting in its bias– I can see where the reporter was skewing the details of the true nature of the camp and leading the interviewees, but even for crappy-ass journalism, it wasn’t worse than most mainstream attitudes towards atheists (or the differently-beliefed).

As a lifelong atheist, I too would have been unprepared as a child to quote Bertram Russell or defend such a complicated philosophical minority position to adults– all I knew was that the bible and the way religions & their flocks go about their beliefs make no sense and seemed silly.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
