Does anyone here think it is innapropriate--perhaps even hypocritical, for atheists to make mention of "mother nature"? I realize that the term "mother nature" is nothing more than a quick and easy way to say "the laws of the natural world", but by given it a persona, aren't we demonstrating our own susceptibility and acceptance towards mythical thought?

I wouldn't say i'm dissin' it, but just wondering if atheists should be cautious in their writings. For example, the atheists who argues against creationism, but then uses terms like 'mother nature' in his writing. It seems that the opposition could then accuse the atheist of also entertaining myth.
