Certainly, but aren't we supposed to stay on topic around here?

You are free to discuss what you wish.
As for a reason. Personally I feel the article in the OP is a veiled attempt to redefine terms and think it agenda driven. Especialy after reading through other articles from that site. As an atheist I know what my beliefs and non beliefs are. The statement that not believing in something is belief is absurd.
The cheese sandwich analogy is absurd. A non issue really. I don't think I have ever heard or read that being an argument against religion but it sounded good in the article. Didn't it? What is funny is the author was demonstrating a strawman by creating one as his argument. A double blind.
Yes, it does have agenda.
An agenda to point out that neither side is "right" as it wants to pretend it is.
If that is a bad thing to you.
What is the Spagetti Monster again?
Yet in the article it says science supports deities. Hmm...sure OK.
Mostly a joke that has been used so often and to which I have seen to demonstrate the level of belief an atheist holds for deities. However, I find this one better.

It is lazy threading. Put your money where your mouth is and don't drop someone else's thoughts in an attempt to spark good discussion without your own take too.
