Reader’s Comment of the Day: Teach atheism and watch it unravel


In response to Chris McGovern: More PC nonsense. Religious education lessons must include atheism, LoveMeIamALiberal wrote:

I’m very happy for atheism and humanism to be on the RE curriculum. For a start, the terms would have to be defined and this is where unbelievers will start to shuffle nervously as they can’t even agree on what atheism is (“it’s not a belief at all!”) or what constitutes ‘humanism’ (anyone?).

Faced with such questions, atheists (or certainly the new atheist variety) just assert their view more vehemently. The exchange between William Lane Craig and Christopher Hitchens, see here, is a delicious example (if 11 minutes is too long then the summation of it at 10:52 by other Atheists tells you all you need to know).
