Atheists who believe

I blogged a while back about the amusing new Pew finding that 21% of "atheists" believe in God. Sam Harris, one of the four 'horsemen of the counter-apocalypse', has also commented on this finding. His post is eerily similar to mine... Anyway, check out his article; an interesting bit:
Open the newspaper tomorrow morning, or any morning thereafter, and reflect upon the fact that half of your neighbors (51%) are “absolutely certain” that a “personal God” presides over all this casual destruction. The incongruity and moral carelessness of such certainty is reason enough to keep atheists (the real ones) awake at the ramparts until a proper war of ideas can be finally waged and won.
