The Stupid! It Burns! (redefining stupidity edition)

the stupid! it burns! Atheists Redefine Atheism Rather Than Admit Defeat:
As most philosophy dictionaries and encyclopedias, like those published by Routledge and Stanford, clearly state, TRUE atheism is the belief or view that affirms there is no God or Gods. Labeling yourself an atheist but failing to make this claim means you are not an atheist. ... [atheism's] best supporting arguments [were] demolished by a revolution in theist thought beginning in about the latter half of the 20th century, led by intellectuals like [snicker] Michael Behe, Francis Collins, [chuckle] William Lane Craig, [guffaw] William Dembski, John Lennox, Alister McGrath, [snort] Alvin Plantinga, John Polkinghorne, Hugh Ross and [howls of derisive laughter, Bruce] Richard Swinburne, to name a few. ...

[A]theists will usually just make their statements then resort to angry, vitriolic, hyperbolic attacks against those who do not hold those same sentiments, including agnostics.

One cannot help but notice, of course, that the post offers no argument, just a vitriolic, hyperbolic attack against those who do not hold the same sentiments as the post author.

  1. The article wisely links to Conservipedia when the wiki page itself has many criticisms :-)

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
