Passed along in email today was this essay by a self-professed "atheist" willing to consider his own atheism and the atheism of others. I like people who reflect and the essay has a nice tone, even if it is too long by at least a third from where I sit. (What academically-inclined person ever gave up the chance to fill yet another blue book where space was offered. "Stand up. Speak up. And shut up" is not yet an observation worth heeding where the ivy grows.)
Anyway, it's nice enough.
