TV pundits don't discuss atheism because the large number of Christians in the country would descend on them like vultures and they would be fired for even espousing that belief. The only time I ever hear it discussed in specific terms is in comedy circles where they can play it off as a joke. There are plenty of Americans who don't believe in the existence of God.
I do read your posts, of course - and let me say that you have changed alot in the last few years, thank God - and my post was an indirect way of approving yours.
As for Big Magilla's post, I don't understand in which order these persons are listed, but yes, of course there must be Americans who don't believe in God - I was just wondering if this issue is discussed in the media, on tv for example, so that it can be shared not only by the intellectuals but also by the so-called "common people".
