People like Richard Dawkins or P.Z. Myers turn purple shouting those who disagree with them down. If anything should convince the open-minded of the religious nature of their belief system, it should be the vicious nature of these attacks on the apostates. These attacks resemble nothing short of the Spanish Inquisition burning Jews and heretics at the stake.
NOBODY expects PZ Myers! My chief weapon is surprise ... surprise and fear ... fear and surprise ... My two weapons are fear and surprise ... and ruthless efficiency ... My three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency ... and an almost fanatical devotion to Charles Darwin ... My four ...no... Amongst my weapons.... Amongst my weaponry ... are such elements as fear, surprise .... I'll come in again.
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” - Dick Morris
I'm sure someone said that before Dick Morris - Ronald Reagan, wasn't it?
He has a pretty low opinion of religious nature. How about if they loved their enemies and if they abided by the golden rule? Should that convince the open-minded of the religious nature of their belief system? Somehow I think not.
It's funny how only the bad stuff reminds the "open-minded" of the religious nature of the people the "open-minded" don't like.
