Can you list 5 evils practiced by the New Atheists?
As a religious adult, Andrews worked for one of those maddeningly innumerous Christian radio stations that make the “scan” button on your car stereo nearly useless anywhere south of Illinois. The Epicurean problem of evil is especially hard to ignore for anybody working in the media, and in the wake of 9-11, not even the most adept apologists seemed able to provide Seth with any way of discerning between a seemingly disinterested and uninvolved god and no deity whatsoever.

According to the Civil Registration Act, a secular body may only solemnise civil marriages in Ireland if they do not promote a “political cause”. However, the Civil Registration Service has accepted the Humanist Association of Ireland (HAI) as secular body for the purposes of marriage solemnisation, despite the fact that this organisation overtly supports political causes in the area of education equality. Specifically, the HAI has made donations to bodies on the Register of Lobbyists, in an effort to achieve specific changes to particular pieces of legislation. In addition, the HAI has also met with the Taoiseach and the Minister for Education, as part of these efforts towards the worthy political cause of education equality. Notwithstanding this clear breach of the law, the HAI remains a registered secular body at the Civil Registration Service and HAI representatives continue to charge fees for the solemnisation of civil marriages.

There Are No Atheists In Foxholes
After battle, the moral and mortality stresses influence different soldiers in different ways. Using two large-scale surveys of World War II veterans, this research investigates the impact of combat on religiosity. Study 1 shows that as combat became more frightening, the percentage of soldiers who reported praying rose from 42 to 72 %. Study 2 shows that 50 years later, many soldiers still exhibited religious behavior, but it varied by their war experience. Soldiers who faced heavy combat (vs. no combat) attended church 21 % more often if they claimed their war experience was negative, but those who claimed their experience was positive attended 26 % less often. The more a combat veteran disliked the war, the more religious they were 50 years later. While implications for counselors, clergy, support groups, and health practitioners are outlined, saying there are no atheists in foxholes may be less of an argument against atheism than it is against foxholes."
