    I'm sure I haven't gotten all the choice quotes, and I'll be sure to add to this list as I stumble upon more, but it's certainly good fun in the meantime. :D I think the main moral of the story is that theists don't tend to deal charitably with atheistic confidence (which interestingly mirrors President Obama's detractors). You simply must have serious character flaws if you think you know what you are talking about in opposition to theism. It's too easy to apply the worst construction to an ideological opponent.
    Carrier is very professional in his books and online articles. It is often difficult to understand the response he gets. Sometimes it does seem like being an outspoken atheist really is akin to public puppy kicking and that even if you are mindful of what you say, it just doesn't matter. Even the few times I fault Carrier for his online attitude in the comments, it does seem like the other team shot first with a butchered first impression from who knows where. Anyway, I like to keep this list of quotes in mind, that I've collected over the last year, as I continue my online journey in confrontation with theists of wide ranging temperaments. It always encourages me to do better and be mindful of other people's feelings. I remember all the folks who are jaded out there (on both sides) and am mindful not to be that way myself.
