Yup. The article nails it on the head. I’m not atheist. Couldn’t be. Wouldn’t be. Too much certainty for my taste. I like my uncertainty and remain agnostic.
But I argue against New Atheism at every turn because what used to be something people would just choose, mocking absurdities of religion without calling for its wholesale removal, without being angry and bitter, without sounding like a new set of Bible Thumpers using a different Bible, has become a movement of zealotry, completely taking over the Internet… and influencing all of the new generation of young people coming in.
Looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck. It might not _be_ a duck but they can’t blame me for shooting it now, can they?
