The CNN Belief Blog, which has graciously featured a few of my pieces, just celebrated its first anniversary, and for the occasion, its editors reflected on 10 things they've learned in the course of the year. The one that got my eye was this: Atheists are by far the most fervent commentators on matters religious.
This completely coincides with my own experience as an Internet commentator and blogger. Every day, my website and YouTube page are inundated with remarks, usually of a sharply negative or dismissive nature, from atheists, agnostics and critics of religion.
