They can take credit for all the good stuff. Is that about it?

Wish I could be of help here David, but my Mayan calander ran out on December 23, 2012, and I'm stuck here in Arizona waiting for the water to rise in the women's bathroom. Damn Ark is never on time.

Last week the New York Times published an opinion piece that offered atheism's response to the evil/tragedy in which 20 children and six adults were murdered at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut.

What prompted Susan Jacoby to write her piece was a colleague telling her that atheism "has nothing to offer when people are suffering."

She wrote the piece, "The Blessings of Atheism" ("It is Here and It is Now!" screams the subhead) to prove her colleague wrong by offering a consoling atheist alternative to religion's consoling belief in an afterlife. Atheists cannot believe that there is any...
