Subject: Cracked.com: 10 Things Christians and Atheists Can (And Must) Agree On

I don't normally link to Cracked.com because I find many of the things on there to be uninteresting. The articles are typically lists of things, in a "top 10" style. Things like "5 Creepy Ways They're Replacing Humans With Robots", "The 5 Weirdest Reasons We Have Sex (According to Science)" and "23 Painfully Honest Valentine's Day Cards" (to take three examples from the front page currently).

However, just now I saw an article that I thoroughly agree with and need to share: 10 Things Christians and Atheists Can (And Must) Agree On. I applaud the writer of this article; they've taken some thorny issues and managed to write about them in a manner that isn't, to my mind, heavily biased towards one way or the other. That's not an easy thing to do, and it makes some excellent points. I'd urge everybody to read it.

[edit: As [profile] kabarett noted in the comments on DW, the author of the article treats gender as binary and acts as if the reader is male. I hadn't noticed these on my reading of the article at first - sorry! To me it's not jarring, and I still believe the article is great to read, but if you're sensitive to these issues then you may want to bear that in mind. (Privilege, I has it.)]
