  • being an atheist is a bad thing when 1 in 6 people on the planet are atheist/nontheist.

    • [they say that like] being an atheist is a bad thing when 1 in 6 people on the planet are atheist/nontheist.

      I'm wary of numbers either way; it's always a matter of swinging the "undecideds" anyway -- i.e., getting people who couldn't explain an idea to save their lives, to claim to support it when they're polled.
