Re: [humanism-174] Excerpt: "The Bonobo & the Atheist"

As I have said before, Hitchens and Dawkins and Harris, and now Krauss, have formed the tip of a spear.  As such, they have been of course sharper than others in the "atheist movement", but they have also been the lightning rod for attacks from the religionists. 
 
We would not fight if there was no need. It is not the moderate or the moderately religious people who fight against science education, sex education, womens rights, gay rights, human rights; it is the fundaloons and the literalists and the terminally ignorant.  And these are the targets of the so-called "militant" atheists.

I like De Waal's research but I think he's done fairly well on the lecture circuit himself if I'm not mistaken.
