In a recent message, FTK said this:
I am saying emphatically that, from an atheist perspective, our morality evolved along with everything else on planet earth. From a *true* atheist perspective (very few people are true atheists, IMHO),
I was intrigued by FTK's apparent statment here, which seems to be that most people who *say* they're atheists aren't really atheists. What I'm predicting is one of those things where someone tries to define some group and gets to say who is or isn't a member, not unlike when Protestants say Catholics aren't Christians. But, in the interest of fairness, I should ask FTK what she meant by this, in case I'm completely misunderstanding it:
1) are you saying most people who claim to be atheists aren't really atheists?
2) if so, WHY are most professed atheists not the real deal? What are your criteria?
3) if there's so few atheists, why do they upset and obsess you so?
I dunno, but as soon as she gets over here I will ask her about those reviewers for Walt Brown's book
Flesh of the sky, child of the sky, the mind
Has been obligated from the beginning
To create an ordered universe
As the only possible proof of its own inheritance.
