Tim Egan's article notes that America, "one of the most religious countries in the West," is experiencing a surge of doubt.
It may be daring to say it but America seems to be experiencing an atheist moment. Although "In God We Trust" was declared the national motto by an act of Congress more than 50 years ago and has been stamped on the currency for longer than that, some considerable doubt has developed of late.That the United States is experiencing renewed interest in atheism is widely known among most who read this blog. Still, it is nice to see that word is spreading in the international community as well. We will have a lot of work to do in order to repair our tarnished reputation once Bush leaves office. I sincerely hope that getting back on the path of reality will be part of such efforts.
