Guest Post: One Less God | MandM

Bethyada has written a great posting answering a pet objection of many atheists. I hate this argument because it so bad

I have read a few posts on the ‘one less god’ proposition. Stephen F Roberts originally put it,
“I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”
elsewhere he says,
“We are all atheists, some of us just believe in fewer gods than others.”

There several ways to answer this stupid argument and the article does a great job explaining their strengths and weaknesses using logic.
