But in this clip he suggests that he is an agnostic, and rejects atheism because it “mirrors the certitude that is religion”:
Maher’s views in the clip mirror my own (straddling the confidence atheist and confidence theist divide). The clip dates to February of 2009, but in October of 2009 he accepted an award from an atheist group. Hmm. I just assumed that Maher was an atheist of the Richard Dawkins variety. Have Maher’s views shifted since this clip? Is he an atheist, or not?
If not, then we are sympatico.
