2. Atheists are the most fervent commenters on matters religious.This one doesn't surprise me one bit. I know many of us were disappointed to see CNN devoting so much time and effort to myth and superstition. It makes sense that we'd have something to say about it, particularly when they often choose not to address it objectively.
I suspect the main reason atheists have been vocal on CNN's blog concerns how they have chosen to cover religion. Just because many people believe some sort of religious drivel does not make it valid. One would hope that a news organization would objectively cover what people believe without endorsing false beliefs. While the Belief Blog does indeed post something from a reality-based perspective on occasion, it certainly isn't the norm.
4. Most Americans are religiously illiterate.Research has already supported this, but it was nice to see that those involved with CNN's blog noticed it too. That so many religious Americans cling to their fables and insist that they are crucial to their morality - without actually knowing what they say - speaks volumes about the plight of our nation.
