From my view of the world (athiest), I'd tend to agree. That's not to say it's because I'm on the winning side of the equation, but due to my
experience and travels around the world, exposure to other cultures, and reading.
I tend to find that religion is, at it's heart, not something of faith at all, but rather simply an emotional pursuit. Emotion, being the irrational
balance to our logical side, isn't always a bad thing, but it certainly doesn't help when dealing with matters of State, Global policy, or anything
else of universal importance (meaning not personal).
The views I've experienced from the religious tend to be emotional and superficial, although it's not 100%. That's not to say that those who
don't believe have well reasoned positions, but that they are less likely to say they know the answer when it's clear that they don't have any
Religion is fine with me, provided it isn't the sole base for someone's position. I find that to be intellectually dishonest, cheap, infantile, and
generally offensive to the god they worship who gave them a brain for a reason.
