The Logic Of The Thing

I left this as a comment here:

Dawkins has said that “Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.”

Now, I’m a big, big fan of Intelligent Design and all, but I have never asserted, and have never heard anyone assert that “Intelligent Design makes it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled theist.”

Theism stands up just fine on other grounds.

So, according to Dawkins, the outcome of this scientific debate is crucial to his worldview (that is, unless atheists are to be intellectually unfulfilled).

It isn’t to mine.

So who is more likely to be wearing the bias goggles?

I’d say it’s the atheists, and by a mile.

And all according to the testimony of one of their chief spokesmen and heroes, in one of his most famous utterances.
