    It's not rocket science to explain to any child old enough for public school that some people believe there's a God and some don't, a yours parent happen not to.  This oppresses me a lot less than having to associate with people don't share my views about earthly matters, including on this very website.

    Personally (and isn't all of this personally?), it warms my atheist heart to see these vapid expressions of nominal official belief in God, because it associates that belief with idle verbiage in general and I think that's a healthy lesson for children to get.

      God is responsible for my bad typing, and for all missed field goals.

      I do think the "religious experience" of many people is the thoughtless repetition of a bunch of God-associated words (I was raised Catholic, so I know what I'm talking about), and it does become wallpaper in your daily (or weekly) life.  Throw in some really stupid behavior and speech from members of the clergy and you have an idea why the largest growing group of people in this country is the non-religious.
