[Fundamentalism] Meet The Science Extremists

Posted by Lex Fear on February 10, 2009

Religion has Osama Bin Laden*, politics has it’s fair share of Stalins and Hitlers, Atheism has Auvinen,  Sport has hooligans and Hollywood has Uwe Boll (just kidding). What about Science?

Five Mad Scientists Who Went Too Far in the Name of Science

[Neo-Atheism] The War Against Theism

Posted by Lex Fear on June 6, 2007

This Post Is Rated: O for May be deemed Offensive. But it’s not, really, not unless you want to be offended.

Side Note: This is my first post using Microsoft’s new Windows Live Writer, which works almost effortlessly with Blogger! It’s amazing, Microsoft is actually embracing third party and open source?! It’s actually pretty decent and so far was the easiest to configure amongst the ones I tested.

I consider myself a fairly moderate/progressive Christian, someone who believes in all the tenets of the Christian faith, but also someone who you could have a pint down the pub with and talk about current events. But I started to notice that some of the bloggers whose opinions I both read and respect have made negative reference to the Christian faith, both passively and directly. The basis of their arguments usually consist of the old Science vs Religion argument, but it can sometimes degenerate into the usual “religion is dangerous/evil/fault of the worlds problems”.

I therefore felt I should make a direct comment on the rise of anti-theism that is being led by fundamentalist atheists such as Richard Dawkins. It’s not just a point of discussing scientific theories, if that was the case most people would not have heard of him, it’s gets much more personal than that. The reason being is that Dawkins and people like him are hostile towards religion, specifically Christianity, and consider believers like myself to be infected with a “virus of the mind“.
