That's a thumping bit of presumption on your part, though, isn't it? I mean, you don't know that all those atheists are just regurgitating soundbites, do you? Despite what you may think, the atheist/deist argument only has so many turns. Eventually, like minded people will begin to sound like each other.
In fairness I know where he is coming from mate, much as I enjoy this particular debate with you, Yorky and others on here. There is a veritable army just waiting on the sidelines ready to chip in with:
a) an image of a crutch
b) the allegation that religion is responsible for the vast majority of all wars
c) an apposite Bill Hicks quote
d) that fucking spaghetti monster bollocks
It hardly suggests any lucid thought has been given to the matter does it?
So, presumptious maybe, but a presumption made with quite a bit of circumstantial supporting evidence.
