Sour grapes?

The eminent atheist, evolutionist, secularist, and humanist scholar Edward O. Wilson lamented in his acceptance speech upon receiving the 1999 Humanist of the Year award:
There is no doubt that spirituality and religious behavior of some kind are extremely powerful and, it appears, necessary parts of the human condition... the inability of secular humanist thinkers to satisfy this instinct, even when evidence and reason are on their side, is surely part of the reason that there are only 5300 members of the American Humanist Association and sixteen million members of the Southern Baptist Convention.

So there!

But then again as Muravchik points out: anthropologists have yet to discover a civilization of logical positivists - but they have discovered the universality of religion.
