A former 40 year Atheist analyzes Atheism, without resorting to theism, deism, or fantasy. *** If You Don't Value Truth, Then What DO You Value? *** If we say that the sane can be coaxed and persuaded to rationality, and we say that rationality presupposes logic, then what can we say of those who actively reject logic? *** Atheists have an obligation to give reasons in the form of logic and evidence for rejecting Theist theories.
Even the Science Magazine headline is phony. It should read: Duke fraud case highlights FRAUD risks for universities. I think students go to Duke in order to learn fraud; it seems to be fundamental to that institution. And fraud is indiscernable in "sciences" which cannot be falsified, so those sciences are the most precious.
