Over the past few years, I have had the occasional run-in with a biology professor who teaches at one of the University of Minnesota's outstate campuses. This professor, one Paul Zachary Myers, happens to be an outspoken atheist as well as a vehement proselytizer of St. Darwin of the Galapagos. His apparent ambition is to follow Richard Dawkins's spiritual evolution from science professor to professional propagandist of the one true unfaith. Unlike Dawkins, however, Myers's ability to construct a rational and coherent case is not merely limited; it is virtually nonexistent. When criticizing, he is seldom able to present anything more sophisticated than the standard ad hominem attack.
Here is a PDF of Vox Day's The Irrational Atheist.
Great, another strawman to add to the list with Dawkins, Hitchens, and Harris. Oh and I almost forgot Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Zedong.ReplyDelete
