Learning more about Atheists

By Michael Edmonds 01/05/2011

Over on his blog Pharyngula, PZ Myers comments on an article in the Washington Post entitled “Why do Americans still Dislike Atheists”. Written by two sociology researchers, Gregory Paul and Professor Phil Zuckerman, it comments on the current growth in atheism, compares different societal indicators (murder rates, level of poverty, happiness etc) in various secular countries with religious countries. It also comments on the disconnect from reality demonstrated by the religious right when they malign atheists.

Certainly worth a read.
