Atheists, for the most part, have been misunderstood for centuries.
I want the bridge to be extended between atheism and christianity. I want the heavy walls of extreme views of either side, thinned and chipped. I want the broken and arrogant centerfield fence to be pulled back to reality. It's finally time to clear things up and open a reliable channel for communication.
There are millions of atheists in the world, and the number grows each and every day. This is a fact. You can argue with it, you can deny it, but at the end of the day it remains a scientific fact. Do what you have to do to live with it.
I am one. Only one of millions. So I can speak only as one of an enormous collective. I can only generalize. I can only say that I am aware that there are always exceptions... no matter the rule. And I must only say that does not discount the rule.
