Quote of the week, from the personal website of the Public Information Project Director of the National Center for Science Education (speaking unofficially, of course):
If the goal of this blog is to be at all educational, one hopes that a vigorous defense of of analogy will serve some salutary effect in the difficulties people have with analogical thinking, whether they be religious fundamentalists bent on Biblical literalism, or atheists bent on insisting that literalism is the true form of religion.
Comment: I weep for the NCSE if this kind of idea is running the railroad. We atheists don’t give a tinker’s dam about what the true form of religion might be, because we don’t think there is one! Nor do we have one. We don’t worship Darwin, nor think that he’s infallible. Is this part of a strategy to marginalize atheists along with Biblical fundamentalists?
