I agree. Why would such an infallible being put his word into the hands of such fallible creatures such as humans and expect those fallible humans not to corrupt his infallible word? Surely he could have found a better way than entrusting his truth to those who have shown time and time again that they are untrustworthy.
Faith is the scapegoat for those in power to force their impossible stories onto gullible and fearful people. They tell you that believing without evidence is what will save you. How convenient for them.
Evangelical Atheist: An evangelical atheist is one who not only believes there is no god or other supreme being, but is obsessed with convincing everyone around them to become an atheist too, usually through hard-line intolerance (the kind they accuse other religions of).
When cornered they usually try to put down their opponent's religion and bash them for 'blind faith', not realizing that their belief that there is no god is no more or less valid or provable than the other guy's belief that there is one.
The New Atheists see religion as a disease to be exterminated. Their dream, in short, is not a government neutral to religion, but a government actively hostile to religion. The evangelical atheists assume that religion must inevitably breed mindless fanaticism. Countering that image means not just answering the atheists’ arguments against God, but also correcting their false impressions of religion.
