Gnu atheist church-goers Pippa Evans and Sanderson Jones write:
Is atheism a religion? Of course it isn’t. Here’s why: we don’t believe in God, but we are ready to change our minds the minute the evidence changes.
Er……ok. Tell ya what. I’ll believe this once we have evidence that Pippa Evans and Sanderson Jones are the type of people who are ready to change their minds the minute the evidence changes. Maybe this is a faith statement they make in their church, but I see no evidence that Pippa Evans and Sanderson Jones are ready to change their minds the minute the evidence changes.
Those of us who have been around gnu atheists and argued with gnu atheists for years do not get the impression that they have some talent when it comes to the open-minded consideration of “evidence.” For example, I am not surprised one bit by the fact that so many atheists score themselves as a 6.9 or above on Dawkins scale of belief, as those are the scores of the closed-minded.
Nice try Pippa and Sanderson. But those of us who value and understand critical thinking recognize your reason to be nothing more than a hollow talking point. Try again.
