    I suppose it's horrible to admit, but, yes, I do. Or rather, I see the
    state of being atheist, and the state of doing science, as innate states.

    Base states. Places we start. Once a god is used as an explanation,
    science is impossible. Once science is used as an explanation, god is
    impossible. "Science is the first sin." -Neitzsche.

    Reinforcingly anti-theistic. Unassumingly humanistic.

    "Theism is mental inbreeding." - Yours truly.

    And, I've written that on blackboards at the Harvard Divinity School, in
    un-supervised moments, and that's as militant as I get.
