I remember the following letter which I read on Ceefax a few months ago. It seemed to go beyond the god/atheism debate:
Prophet: Jesus Christ
Evangelists: Archbishop of Canterbury ...
Deity: Random Chance
Prophet: Charles Darwin
Evangelists: Richard Dawkins ...
The problem is not with religion or atheism. The problem is with fundamentalism.
I would also add that the problem is with tv and celebrity from the Archbishop of Cunterry to Richard. Remember how the counsels of opposing sides go for a drink together after court? It's all cunterry and there are bigger divisions between people than whether they believe in god or not.
