A) I’m not sure why one wouldn’t conflate truth and goodness
B) Atheism is a neutral, it’s morality that is positive or negative, and atheism doesn’t create a set of moral values
C) I still haven’t heard a cogent definition for what a “New Atheist” is as compared to a plain old normal atheist
D) What exactly is there to be sad about not being religious, what do you lose that you’d want to keep?
E) I’m not sure why someone needs to deeply try to understand Christianity in order to reject it outright. I don’t need to understand Greek mythology all that well to ignore it
F) Why is it the atheist’s job to disprove a religion and not their job to prove it?
G) There are many examples of the struggle to get out of their faith by so-called new atheists. They all address how difficult it is to leave, they just all think it is better to not be religious
H) Do they think that someone born and raised atheist feels a profound lack in their life?
I) There is a difference between allowing people to be free and allowing people to take advantage of, abuse, mislead, lie and steal from people. Simply exposing ideas for what they are and providing information isn’t illiberal it’s common decency
