    Science And Anti - Theists

    Just for Ohein56

    https://shadowtolight.wordpress.com/...closed-minded/

    As we all know, the New Atheists love to posture as if they are champions of science. The problem is that they only seem to care about science when it can somehow be recruited to aid their metaphysical and/or political agenda. What if you were to debate with a New Atheist and inform him that science has provided evidence that New Atheists are narcissistic, mean, and dogmatic? Do you think the New Atheist would acknowledge this characterization of New Atheists? Or do you think he/she would come up with reasons to ignore or dismiss such a scientific finding?

    Well, there is no need to keep this in the realm of a thought experiment, as science has provided evidence that New Atheists are narcissistic, mean, and dogmatic. Check out the research of Christopher Silver from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Silver found that there were six basic types of atheists. One type, the “antitheist,” is described as follows:
    The fourth typology, and one of the more assertive in their view, we termed the Anti-Theist. While the Anti-Theists may be considered atheist or in some cases labeled as “new atheists,” the Anti-Theist is diametrically opposed to religious ideology.
    But here is the interesting part.

    In addition to characterizing their subjects, the researchers carried out various empirical psychometric measures. And among all atheist types, the New Atheists scored highest for Narcissism, Dogmatism, and Anger. What’s more, they scored lowest when it came to agreeableness and positive relations with others.
    Sounds like Ohein.

    More importantly:

    Either they have to acknowledge there is scientific evidence that shows they are mean, narcissistic, closed-minded, and have trouble getting along with others. Or, they could deny this, but in doing so, show the world they are not sincere when they claim they “follow science and the evidence wherever it leads.”

    Daniel Dennett decidedly disappoints
    University of Wisconsin freshman Sam Bolstad said he was disappointed by Dennett’s lecture.

    “He argues for evolution, but he didn’t argue against intelligent design. He didn’t demonstrate how evolution knocked intelligent design out of the ranks, and I thought he would,” Bolstad said.

    UW freshman Alex Plunkett agreed the lecture was a disappointment and said he expected more from the speaker.

    A typo is not a failure to comprehend. I guess you can't distinguish between the two.

    Hey IDIOT!...I brought the typo to your attention on post #7...you responded to that reply on post #9, it was more finger-pointing and comprehension accusations...

    You should learn to read and comprehend. It was in the link I posted.
    Where you failed to "comprehend" your typo...you didn't admit to your blatant error that started the tread...till #13!
