I love David Silverman. Why? Because he has the brass cojones to call a spade a spade, he doesn't soften his approach and he doesn't back down. Recently, in Zurich, Switzerland, David gave a talk on firebrand atheism which relates to his new book, Fighting God. In it, he talks about the fact that we as atheists need to be BOLD, we need to stop using euphemisms and talking around the subject and confront the issues of theism versus atheism head-on. We need to grasp and own the facts, know that we have them and THEY DON'T. This doesn't mean being a dick or being abusive, but owning the facts and using them to our advantage.
This is the message that has to get through to atheists in the US right now. We owe it to ourselves to be loud and proud about our atheism, so that people know that There Is NOTHING Wrong With Atheism ... because there isn't, yet there is PLENTY wrong with religion.
Break it down, David!
