Christian philosopher Stephen J. Graham argues against those who say there are no honest atheists. He cites yours truly as an example of an honest atheist.LINKI'm truly grateful for the kind words. I also want to point I have a lot of respect for Graham because he does not shy away from criticizing weak theistic arguments when he sees them.Of course, in spite of our mutual respect, Graham and I do have our disagreements.
