The Best Approach

    Regardless of whether people agree or disagree with atheism, is the approach of the likes of Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens the right one.  By making fun of people's religious beliefs, does this approach lead to anything positive, or just to an endless unwinable argument?

      Nothing meaningful and deserved has ever been attained by making fun of someone's religious beliefs. Mankind has been in heated debate for thousands of years as to whether or not God exist. I find it hard to believe that we will solve the problem now, so it seems that greater minds have attempted to tackle the subject and get an answer, though no one has succeeded. In the end it comes down to what you believe and what you put your faith in. I guess in the end we will see who was write.

      I didn't know Dawkins was making fun of believers. I've been to his seminars and lectures, watched his videos and even had the opportunity to talk with him one on one.

      Dawkins is dead serious when he talks about religious indoctrination and child abuse, it isn't humorous to him in the least.

    Then I think you are as naive as the generalized Christians you make fun of.
