PZ Myers responds to Charlotte Allen

Even if you don't much care about the religion - "New Atheists" debate, you ought to read this editorial by PZ Myers, written in response to this silly whine at the LA Times by one Charlotte Allen a few days ago.

One of the reasons - no, two of the reasons - I so admire Myers is that, while he can eviscerate an argument with a merciless, contemptuous wit, he can also respond with an indulgent good humor when the occasion calls for it. This was such an occasion and Myers showed perfect restraint, making his case in a manner both pointed and patient.
