In which I annoy Ed
Few days ago Ed Brayton posted a quote from H L Mencken and I wondered aloud if that made Ed a New Atheist. Argument followed. Thread is dead now, but if you're trying to figure out what's going on with Ed and his religious views, the comments are worth reading, and that's something people have been trying to figure out for some time. My gut reaction is that Ed is being holier than thou with his deism and anti-New Atheism, but that's not really fair to him. What's really going on is that he's being something somewhat like but not exactly holiness-er than thou.
