Dr. Cobb's Response

The intellectual-cultural context in which we operate favors atheism. Obviously this does not lead most people to become atheists. In this culture, in its popular forms, “atheism” is still a negative word. It was associated with “Communism,” for example. Many people call themselves “agnostic” in order to avoid the label and also to acknowledge that certainty about what does not exist is unattainable.
