Comment Spam

Well, I suppose it was only a question of time. Today I got the first comment spam on the blog. Actually it was not too offensive, an ardently evangelical atheist pointing me to his presentation of the gospel of unbelief.

Puzzling:
I can understand people who don't believe - after all it's often a struggle to maintain belief when life has been smooth and all too easy. (See my post on "Good space, bad space, God space".)

I can understand people who believe wanting to convert others - after all we have (or so we claim) good news! But where is the attraction in persuading others to unbelief - just sharing one's misery?
Maybe I misjudge "hubrisbiscuits" with her/his 5,351 words of earnest advocacy, perhaps buried in the mass of words is something that would make atheism an attractive alternative to dependence on the love and grace of a forgiving creator - somehow, in all the strained attempt to be reasonable about unreasonable issues, I missed that gospel!
