1. If they had any introspection at all, Christians who complain about atheists' "cartoonish" views

of religion would see that we are merely reacting to the majority view of Christians. Even if we, laughably, assume every Jew and Muslim (even though AFAIK the Qur'an is silent on the age of the world and contains references that if anything suggest evolution for humans) is a young earth creationist, that still means the majority of Christians must be.

Meanwhile the basic view that is more attuned to liberal Christianity (you know, the supposedly majority "mainstream" lot that we should accept are the REAL Christians) dropped like a rock, plummetting over 25% in 30 years and less than a third the size of the "fundy fringe" of young earth creationists. Fringe? Fuck it not the most petite anorexic hippy chick with the wildest "Indian" jacket had fringes this much bigger than the main body!

That cartoonish view ain't coming from atheists folks. It's coming from your lot. Your scientifically illiterate, critical thinking incapable, woefully uninformed and willfully blind lot. THIS is "real" Christianity guys. You Spong-spouting Hell-denying touchy-feely love of Christ types are the fringe. This is what we have to deal with, even when you pretend it's not so.
