God, Andrew Brown's column in the Guardian is annoying.

He argues here that children need God.

And here he argues that the environment can only be saved by religion.

Both links are the same...

Annoying , yes, but hardly intellectually challenging.

Quite - there's no actual argument there at all.

I'm starting to think that Brown is not a true atheist.

I'd assumed he was an atheist at one point, but I haven't seen anything definitive to that effect - does he say that he is?

I was brought up without religion. Whether this permanently warps the psyche is left to the reader's judgement.

Apparently he used to be, at least.

Edit: it turns out he's one of those mean atheists, which isn't surprising, because people who don't believe in God have no reason to be moral (the comments in that posting are particularly excellent: look out for the link to the chap who thinks that God influences the world undetectably by taking advantage of the Uncertainty Principle).

Always an interesting question. My father was Anglican-turned Evangelical and my mother's family were all Christian Science. It is entirely possible that this has informed my opinion somewhat.
