Self-declared atheists not only report getting angry at God, but report higher levels of anger than that experienced by believers. How does that work? Why bother being angry at something which one doesn't believe even exists?
This diverse, unorganized mish-mash of open-minded seekers tends to approach spirituality in a reasonable, rational and pragmatic manner, and it's the fastest-growing religious category in America: spiritual but not religious.
There are many different religions in the world, and they make contradictory claims. They cannot all be true. Why therefore should we think any of them true? Is it not just a matter of chance what we believe?
Is our top priority trying to do away with religion altogether, or is it trying to make the world a better place? If it is the latter, then we must change our approach, reach out to religious liberals and moderates and work together.
The squabbles between fundamentalists and the New Atheists are tragic because left-leaning religious communities and progressive atheists cannot find each other, thus failing to make common cause on a shared vision of ecological and social justice.
But I believe both the New Atheists (advocating life over God) and the Constitutional Evangelicals (advocating life under God) are far closer in their values and worldview than either would like to acknowledge.
