It is especially ludicrous to make that statement because, until about the 20th century, the realm of logic was pretty much dominated by religious believers. And even into the 20th century and today, religious believers are among the greatest practitioners and scholars of logic. Going back in time, perhaps the greatest of all logicians, Kurt Gödel, was a religious believer. He even published an ontological proof of God's existence. Which, as such proofs go and all logic is, in the end, a matter of persuasion, not of absolute proof which, anyway, doesn't really exist outside of formal mathematics.
Although other members of the institute found the gloomy logician baffling and unapproachable, Einstein told people that he went to his office “just to have the privilege of walking home with Kurt Gödel.” Part of the reason, it seems, was that Gödel was undaunted by Einstein’s reputation and did not hesitate to challenge his ideas. As another member of the institute, the physicist Freeman Dyson, observed, “Gödel was . . . the only one of our colleagues who walked and talked on equal terms with Einstein.”
One of the things he is most famous for were his famous his incompleteness theorems which pretty much put an end to the massive project of Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead and others, to establish an absolute logical foundation for mathematics. And, when the atheist Russell went looking for a collaborator who was up to making the effort with him, he hooked up with his teacher, Whitehead, who was also a religious believer*.
Obviously the atheist super-star example of a logician, Bertrand Russell, wasn't as stupid as the callow online atheists of today and most of today's atheist superstars. But, then, today's atheism is a decadent popularization of what was current during Russell's period. As mentioned the other day, it would inevitably have to be because it couldn't survive in the form it takes if it didn't remain mired in 19th century positivism, something else that Gödel torpedoed. Atheism is an intellectual ruin kept alive by two things, the publicizing of the more disreputable figures among the religious and, not infrequently, the magnification and blanket assignment of guilt to people who are guilty of nothing and the TV-media based ignorance of the alleged educated class, today. If people had an education that included the history of Western philosophy much of the idiocy spouted by online and popular atheists, today, would be known to be lies.
Going back into history and picking up on my extracts from Thomas Cahill's, How the Irish Saved Civilization, there is the figure of Duns Scotus who is described this way in the secular Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy:
