Colin McGinn: Why I am an atheist

I am posting this for the benefit of the Maharishi, although I must admit to being in awe of the mind and intellect of this moral philosopher after seeing him in Atheism: Jonathan Miller's Brief History of Disbelief

Click here for the essay Why I am an atheist. 

Colin McGinn is a British philospher of mind, ethics and philosophical logic. He teaches at the University of Miami.  Watch him interviewed by Bill Moyers here.

"Tolerating somebody else's beliefs is not failing to criticize them. It's not persecuting them for having those beliefs. That is absolutely important. You should not persecute people for their beliefs. It doesn't mean you can't criticize their beliefs."
--Colin McGinn
