Failed The Test [Sep. 23rd, 2006|10:47 am]
Tony Grist
I'd like to be an atheist, I really would.

A proper atheist, I mean- like Richard Dawkins- taking the fight to the fundies, telling them their Bibles and Korans are silly- just silly.

But I can't be, not quite.  I don't believe in God, but I do believe in Spirit. 

Is there a place in the ranks of proud and militant atheists for someone who suspects that trees have souls?

No, I thought not.


Yeah, sure; I'll close the door quietly behind me...

Dawkins should stick to genetics. The reason pantheism works so well is that it accords with an intuition as real as any of the senses: that we are connected to everything else in a way that does not reduce to the material.

That's enough to believe in pantheism of some sort unless some hard contrary evidence comes up.

That's it. Dawkins has no time for "intuition".

Dawkins should look up the trilemma.

That's a new one on me. I like it.
