We are all atheists about most of the gods… some just go one god further?

This is one that I started writing over a month ago when my PC locked up… I didn’t even realize that it saved it as a draft… here goes.

I thought I would share this video from Richard Dawkins at the 2002 TED conference.  Richard’s presentation titled “An atheist’s call to arms” discusses his view that there needs to be a militant uprising of atheists.  With roughly 30 million citizens (Americans – added for clarity) who claim to be “non-religious/secular,” why is this voice so dormant in our society?  I personally liked his suggestion that we are all atheists of some sort… we don’t believe in the god of the golden calf, we don’t believe in the god of tooth fairies, or we don’t believe in God / Allah… and some of us just go one god further.

    Is this 30 million in America? I thought there was a lot more atheists than that. Anyway that’s a very good point that I havent heard of before where we are all atheists to some degree in not believing other peoples thoughts….

    Interesting times ahead!
    Anyway keep up the great work..
    Cheers!
