I wish that more atheists were involved in biblical research since the historical method supports atheism rather than Christianity.
I don't need that much information to be an atheist. It isn't a specialty. I'm not after a PhD in the field. Where would I draw the line? Am I supposed to give equal study to christianity, zoroastrianism, voodoo and whatever it was that Klingon's worshipped? Or can I just use my common sense, look at the commonality of all religions (excuses, excuses, excuses) and just dismiss them outright, without having an armload of specifics?
I'm hoping its the latter. Because I've got other things to do.
