In a column a couple of years ago, they take two swipes at atheism. First, they insist that anyone who contemplates the universe must surely come to theism:
If you spend time asking yourself serious questions like, "Who made all this?" or "What is life all about?" chances are you will come to some kind of personal belief in a higher power.
Of course, lots of people work on just those questions without arriving at theism. But, just in case there was any confusion about what they really thought, the come up with this gem:
The notion that the universe and life and love and courage and joy are all just the result of some accidental cosmic joke is not only foolish, but also just plain wrong.
Not only do they misrepresent atheism by implying that unless you are a theist you must regard the wonders of life as a "cosmic joke," they then proceed to label nonbelievers as "foolish" on the basis of that Straw Man.
Hey, God Squad: what's actually foolish and "just plain wrong" is to denigrate others because they disagree with your beliefs. Such denigration is commonly a mark of insecurity - if you were comfortable with what you believe, you wouldn't feel inclined to insults those who don't believe. So, are you experiencing a crisis of faith that you'd like to share with us?
If so, I recommend not taking your own advice - don't treat faith as something you need to "work on" constantly. If you don't find a valid basis for belief, then don't assume that you have an obligation to continue believing and so need to work on finding new reasons for doing so.
Honest doubting requires accepting the premise that maybe you shouldn't believe after all and that perhaps you have been mistaken. That, in turn, requires letting go of the egotistical assumption that you cannot be mistaken and that others are "foolish" or "just plain wrong" if they disagree.
