This Sunday; Ricky Gervais: Why I’m an Atheist

Again, go read this! It sums up my thinking quite nicely!

I dunno if you can watch videos or not, but this one is about 5 and a half minutes in length.
Anyway, the title of the video is 'Tolerance is condescending' and Penn Jillette, noted magician and outspoken atheist, speak here about why he believes that Tolerance is condescending. Now while I believe that some of his reasoning is a tad flawed, quite a bit of it is quite reasoned and well thought out.

But there is a problem, nay, a danger, of always believing that we should argue when we believe we are right. This can sort of lead to one man upmanship. And when someone has gained power, either a job promotion, or a presidency, and they whole heartedly believe they are right, and others are wrong, what could happen there? If they want power over others, and to be right, what is to stop them from enforcing their view on a state or country. Most of us don't mind being challenged, but being forced is something completely different.
