In which I show once again that cartoons can simplify points to their clearest points

HT to Synapostasy via Bronze Dog.

Everytime I listen to a debate between some theist and Hitchens or Dawkins, this is the basic thing I hear. The theist inevitably says wooly, vacuous nonsense about a source of morality, the ineffable essence of blah-di-blah. The atheist points out that theologians may have wandered down this path, but religious people believe the bigger goat theory of God.
Half the time I'm convinced by the way they talk that people defending religion in these circumstances are either concealing what they truly believe or they're closeted deists. They really seem to lack conviction in the mild, extra milky milquetoast version of religion that they espouse.
