Splitters

1 September 2008

Spotted in the Pharyngula comments among the invective aimed at Nature over the journal's editorial on scientists cooperating with the John Templeton Foundation (emphasis added):

#25 is a troll.

There is no such organization as the
Moderate Concerned Atheist Alliance (MCAA)

There are only 3 legitimate atheist groups:
United Atheist Alliance (UAA)
the true atheists

Allied Atheist Alliance (AAA)
a bunch of illogical frauds

Unified Atheist League (UAL)
morons if you ask me

I didn't become an atheist so I could be a member of a club, or another religion.

The letter penned by Matthew Cobb and Jerry Coyne to Nature that triggered this and more is also wrong in claiming:

"In reality, the only contribution that science can make to the ideas of religion is atheism."

Agnosticism, yes. Atheism? That's a stretch.

Actually, agnosticism is an outgrowth of Christian theology, not scientific investigtion.

"I didn't become an atheist so I could be a member of a club, or another religion."

EXACTLY what's been bugging me lately. What's with the grouper mentality lately? It's all very annoying, if you ask me.
