    I'm 51, and, in my experience, most atheists think they're smart. In fact, they scream that they're smart.

    The actual proposition of a positive atheism (maintaining that there is not and cannot be any divinity) is not particularly rational or empirical, and the casual atheism (not believing in any person's belief in God) is as often reflexive and emotional as it is based on anything approaching critical thinking.
