Pascal's Wager or Jung's argument that religion helps keep us sane or Nietzsche's argument that it's life-denying.
Here's one via Salon.com in the latter category: an account of a survey claiming that atheists report better, less inhibited sex lives. The article points out the obvious flaws in the study and ends with some vague goofiness about how we all deify love and sex.
Certainly how beliefs affect behavior, including sexual behavior, is interesting, but this poorly designed bit of propaganda does little to increase our understanding of this issue.

Salon is funny, but Jackson Lears is masterful in The Nation. Thanks for keeping the conversation alive:)
