I am shocked that the normally vapid Doug Giles hit on one of the neatest points about religious faith: that it has consistently produced, down through history, the finest art that humanity has ever created.
Religious faith has brought out what is best in man; atheism has brought out the worst -- as anyone who has witnessed what passed for art in the USSR could attest.
In other words, Christianity led to the Hallelujah Chorus, atheism to the latest barf that Madonna puked up. Christianity wins, atheism loses. Q.E.D.
