The fact that he is atheist has nothing to do with the story. Why mention it?
Its no wonder that conservatives don't trust the research coming out of academia on many other issues, such as global warming, psychology/psychiatry, etc. They have come to expect this kind of behavior from a system that "peer reviews" itself when its members are not representative of the general public's viewpoint.

How quickly we forget 9/11. If our government had been more vigilant in who crosses our border, it would have never happened.

I'm Republican. I have read slashdot since its inception. I'm in my late 40's, I'm a CIO, highly paid, highly educated (J.D; degree), and I almost never post on Slashdot. I think this is my third time. I find most of the commentary in the posts to be of "talk radio" quality, and both the selection of articles and their summaries tend to have a left slant. Therefore, I don't feel a part of the community. But I read it because it's an easy way of keeping track of technical news. My guess is there are a lot of others like me.
