From “Way Beyond Atheism: God Does Not (Not) Exist
(Why Richard Dawkins is a fundamentalist,
and why most atheists reject far too little)”
by Paul Wallace, posted at RELIGION DISPATCHES:
Most atheists reject far too little. They only have to be one kind of atheist: The atheist who stands against some kind of ridiculous super-object in the sky, who stands against a child’s theology. Christians, who, like Jews, are commanded to have no gods before God, do not have the luxury of disbelieving in so few things. In Turner’s words, “In order to deny every kind of idolatry possible, a Christian must be every kind of atheist possible.” We are required to have faith in no thing at all; only then will our faith have any chance of finding its true home in God.
Do go read the rest of this article, which is very interesting and, pretty much, fleshes out my “Thoughts For The Day” about the sure faith of atheists, a level of faith that I am incapable of maintaining.
Thanks to Cathy for sending in the link to this article.
