Don;t I have pie on my face!<quoted text>
I just posted excerpts of the article, which seemed anti-atheist though I think he was generalizing about what atheists believe about believers.
I thought you'd agree with him.
None of it to do with my positions or reasoning so not sure what there was to disagree with me about - just throwing it out there.
I thought it was a good article in that it might give many atheists pause in their own smugness.
(Hughbe - note the exercise in contrition and humility)
Obviously I should of read the FULL article first before spouting off.
Excellent article - thank you.
I dont think new atheists should be blamed for not knowing their history though - thats really esoteric, but I agree with the points in the article
"....If someone is really interested in whether or not God exists, Iíd say the best way is to have a little humility and experiment, with an open mind and heart, with the paths that Christians have claimed take you directly to him, in the ways that have worked. If someone isnít willing to do such a thing, and insists that a discussion about painting be one about mathematics, then the conversation isnít going to go anywhere...."
and of course, the points about science vs reliigion....
