Many of you may already have seen the recent anti-atheist screed by one Dr. Roger Olson, a professor of theology at Baylor University.
From the page: ""We have to recognize atheists' full freedom to believe God does not exist, but we don't have to embrace atheism as a social good. In fact, I would argue that atheism has no redeeming social value."
Holy shit, you're right! Atheism has no redeeming social value! How can we possibly get out of this one? Oh, wait, here are three ways we can get out of this one: Not believing in Santa Claus has no redeeming social value, Not believing in Leprechauns has no redeeming social value, and Not believing in the Loch Ness Monster has no redeeming social value. In fact, we can come up with a lot more than three of those. The point, of course, is that no shit the absence of a belief in a made-up thing does not inherently have redeeming social value. We're not arguing that it does."
