The Secular Outpost complains about the Conservapedia's Entry on Atheism

Don't act so surprised.

Well, it is a tad difficult to take Conservapedia seriously when it starts off its list of reasonable explanations for atheism with moral depravity.

From Conservapedia:

There are a number of reasonable explanations for atheism:
Moral depravity: The history of the atheist community and various studies regarding the atheist community point to moral depravity being a causal factor for atheism.

Victor -- You are correct. It isn't surprising that the Secular Outpost complains about the Conservapedia entry on atheism. That isn't very interesting. What is interesting is whether the claims in the Conservapedia entry on atheism are true. Since you do not provide any comment indicating disapproval of the Conservapedia entry on atheism, should we assume that you endorse its content and agree with all or even a majority of its claims?

No. It looked tendentious to me.

Why would moral depravity be an unreasonable explanation for atheism?
