She makes some very good points.

I remember Callahan giving her a hard ride for making some very bad (false) points, and raked her over the coals in Skeptic and online.  Evidence that atheists have more integrity than believers, perhaps.  We aren’t as likely to sit quietly as one of our own spreads misinformation.

I think the most important take-away here is that she’s kinda hot.

Very weird and ultimately dishonest.  It’s basically a rant about what she doesn’t believe.  Is it really a religion?  She doesn’t say what wackiness she does believe.  I absolutely respect the right of anybody to believe anything intelligent or stupid but I don’t have to respect the concept of religion, the belief in supernatural or non-supernatural things without any evidence whatsoever.  I respect the right to practice religion that doesn’t infringe on anybody’s elses rights but not religion itself.

She’s an atheist.
