Description:

Atheists are one of the most reviled minorities in the United States. Have we earned this place in society or are we simply misunderstood? There is a growing polarity between the so-called Old and New Atheists ‰ÛÓ disagreement about goals, effective social strategy, even what it means to be an atheist. Science has expanded our relationship with the universe, but need that come at the expense of our personal relationships? Do black holes and a-holes both threaten to tear us apart?
