"Rare letter in which secretive Charles Darwin confesses to being an atheist ..."
I hope the Scaly Mail sacks the brain donor who wrote that train wreck of an article. The letter does nothing of the sort. It makes plain that Darwin wasn't a Christian (no surprise to anyone who knows anything about Darwin), but it nowhere mentions atheism.
Pain, or damage, don't end the world. Or despair, or fucking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man, and give some back. - Al Swearengen, Deadwood.

Sorry, I find serious New Atheism an unintentional parody of the very religion it's against.
Some things are almost beyond parody and what passes for religious beliefs as exhibited by several members of this forum is very much included in that.

Mind you, I did say 'almost.'

Which suggest that you don't really pay very much attention. This doesn't surprise me, given that you started the thread by citing an article in the Daily Mail...

Universes are forever, not just for creation...

New Atheism - because, apparently, there's a use-by date on unanswered questions.
