    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.

    I think it's fair to say that atheism/agnosticism allows one to evaluate and choose values without the compromising conflicts that come with religion. Not that there aren't other compromising conflicts that come from family and state, but atheists and agnostics have one less source of them to cloud their judgment.

    Though I'm sure that a religious devotee would say that atheism sets an individual's values dangerously adrift in a sea of existentialism. Or something.

    I know that he is incorrect, although, I'm interested in his point of view.
