Quote of the day:
“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do.
When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”
- Stephen F Roberts
...Yep, that's me! I am the author of the above quote which has become a bit of a popular statement throughout the net (and some in the real world too).
...I first used The Quote as a tag line for postings on the newsgroups alt.atheism and talk.atheism at some point before October 1995.
...The Quote is an original quote that came from an online debate I was having with religious people in the newsgroups. I used the a similar comparison in a debate when my opponent wondered why I ignored the evidence for god, and in return, I wondered why my debate opponent chose to ignore the evidence for Shiva, or Zeus, or any of the other possible gods.
