Further reading

My earlier posting "internet insularity" wasn't particularly to do with atheism, but it has provoked further postings by Ute on speaking out as an atheist, by John Evo on atheist identity, and by Phillychief on (the lack of) such insularity among atheists. Some interesting discussions.

I think you all make very good points, but what was really interesting was the different perspectives that atheists have on atheism.

To me, those different perspectives all suggest a lack of insularity, as they all argued, but I have to agree that learning and understanding the other side of the argument is required, especially if you want to be able to argue a point coherently.

I've read all those pieces, plus your original one that started it all. It's interesting how one post can spawn such diverse offspring in such numbers.

And it's nice to see that there are people on the internet who can handle differences of opinion without exploding in insults and profanity. There are disappointingly many, based on experience elsewhere, who apparently can't.

I'll probably have another posting up at some point dealing with some of the issues raised in the discussions I linked to above, once I get my own thoguths settled.
