In response to Roj
God, if exsistant would have to be female. I know this for two reasons no man has that much to say and thousands of years after eating her apple we are still catching crap about it.
Well, it is often left up to the woman to go out and buy more apples!
What you describe is really more along the lines of what a deist is. Atheists by definition do not believe in God, a god, or gods. What you argue may be a resonable way to look at the idea of ‘god’, but you’re talking about something other than atheism.
You write, “Atheists who are utterly certain that there has never been any sort of supreme being frighten me as much as people who are utterly certain that the biblical flood was an historical event.”
Why would this frighten you? Do you believe in Zeus, Wotan, Baal or Odin? Should it scare me if you don’t? Perhaps what you fear is not atheists, but the possibility that they could be right.

That’s only true in the Bible. In real life it’s the woman’s job to go out and buy more beer!

Bah! You just havn’t been properly trained OEJ. Ever noticed how, after a few years (say 5), a man starts referring to his “til death do us part” as the boss!!!
These men have discovered the key to a happy marriage. (along with everything that implies)
Some might argue that the term “happy marriage” is an oxymoron.
