I especially love this comment by Skeppo:
Well, Joe. Obviously if you are credulous to believe in your religious myths, you are credulous enough to believe anything. I told you what I believe. And there are whole books that say pretty much the same thing. One thing you cannot do is tell me what I believe. You might be able to talk yourself into this fantasy view of how atheists think because it makes you feel superior, but it's not the truth. And that's a fact.
These types of responses are what he seems known for. He assumes that Christians are believers in myth, no matter what.

And then, there's this comment:
Science does not make us feel love or aesthetic appreciation. And that's not to say that I don't share those things with the rest of humanity, either, as people like Joe would have you believe.
When did you ever say that he didn't love humanity?
