We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

My grandfather saw the first air flights and humans walking on the moon.  He said we could do anything.  I agree.
