  •  Regrettably, Russell didn't have all the answers (none)
    Ignorance is not the preserve of theists. I have met too many atheists who simply do not know what they are talking about. I used to be one myself. Such people have blind faith in their rationality. Now, as a mathematician, I know Russell was wrong about many things. Still a cool guy, and his heart was in the right place. But wrong.
    •  For example? (none)
      Curious: What was it that you state (definitively) Russell was wrong about?

      (Most people are wrong about something; that doesn't discredit the bulk of their thinking.)

      I strongly recommend Sam Harris' bracing and intelligent book on the topic of the damage that religious extremists and religious moderates have done to our society...
