Good Quote

Mr. Silverman said.
“Atheism is an effect of that knowledge, not a lack of knowledge. I gave a Bible to my daughter. That’s how you make atheists.”
I saw it many places but here's the NYT.

This was in response to a Pew Poll that showed that atheists and agnostics were more knowledgable about religion than believers. Here is Pew's executive summary.

The survey is here. I read through it. The only questions I didn't know the answer to were 40, 45, 47d, 48d, and 63.

NOTE: A couple of those were answered in the various articles I read but I counted them against me since I didn't know before reading them.
