A noise reasonable people make...

Just read Sam Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation today and I wish there was a way I could get this book into everyone in America's hands. Check it out at only a hundred pages it is a really quick read and it could save the world.

"Atheism is a term that should not even exist. No one needs to identify themself as a non-astrologer or a non-alchemist. We do not have words for people who doubt Elvis is still alive or that aliens have transversed the galaxy only to molest ranchers and their cattle. Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs."

If they're not atheists, then what do you say we call them?

I think we should call them reasonable people
