Right, he authored the classic: _Why I'm Not A Christian_, an excellent primer
on debunking religiosity. (Decided to change Subj. heading from "equally" to
"equitably" since some forms of religiosity require more debunking than
others.)

Good for you. Bertie proved it's cognitive doo doo, too...

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, CYC, and ELIZA

We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
