Man, that's a damn good quote. That's from chapter 28 of the Reason Driven Life. Forget the labels and mud slinging. I'm an atheist, a skeptic and a humanist. But throw away those labels for a moment and forget what any other atheist, skeptic or humanist has ever done or said. If you are thoughtful and you carefully reason out evidence and come to provisional, tentative conclusions, then you embody every positive quality that can be summed up in those labels. That is the true spirit of skepticism and it's pretty goddamn beautiful.
"Do you think that thoughtful individuals who carefully reason out evidence and come to provisional, tentative conclusions, the only kind science allows, would ever be found howling for the blood of homosexuals?" - Robert Price
We're recording episode 28 tomorrow and we have a very, very special guest for this episode. His name is Ravi Zacharias and he's a world famous evangelical, Christian apologist and author. He's a real bright chap and even I enjoy his talks, because he talks respectfully and rationally. So, it should be a great show, I'll post it up a.s.a.p.
