This is such a fantastic post, Greta. ...theists tend to assume that of course atheists are looking for a worldview that they find appealing and useful, rather than one that they find consistent and plausible. I hope you don't mind if I link to something on my own blog, but I think it is really consistent with what you are saying about atheist and theists having different goals (perhaps we might even call them values) while debating. In my post, I mention this in terms of choices that the characters must make in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. This is the choice between comfort and happiness and freedom and truth. I think this choice is very similar to what you've outlined here. Here's the post. Thanks again for a terrific article!
