  •  Hey, that teach-the-bible story was important (14+ / 0-)

    Without it, I wouldn't have learned that atheists talk like idiots:

    But not 20 ft. away sat a blond atheist who asked that her name not be used because she hasn't outed herself to her parents. Why take a Bible class? I asked her. "Some of my friends are Christian," she said, shrugging, "and they would argue about, like, whether you can be a Christian and believe in evolution, and I'm like, Okaaaay ... clueless."

    while the daughters of Sunday school teachers are highly articulate and demonstrate clarity of thought and purpose:

    "If somebody is going to carry on a sophisticated conversation with me, I would rather know what they're talking about than look like a moron or fight my way through it," she says.

    Indeed, this second young woman is so together that David Van Biema, the author of the Time cover story, didn't even feel compelled to tell us her hair color (though I'm putting my money on brunette).
