Arguing Atheism At NPR

I have class coming up soon, so not much time to write, but I wanted to alert you to a story on NPR about the San Diego Coalition of Reason’s atheism booth.

As always, the comment section is where the fun is. Even among NPR listeners (so, trust me, it is worlds better than the comment section on, say, The Blaze), there is an awful lot of ignorance, misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and more. There always is, in the comments on any story that mentions anything remotely related to religious belief and/or the lack thereof, but hey, this is a story about us, so it would be nice if we were accurately represented.

    Speaking of atheist booths, there won’t be one at this year’s big DC wingnutapalooza.

    Connoisseurs of ignorance, misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and more, will still find plenty of nourishment there.

    Wow.. so many dictionary arguments and “atheism is *so* a religion!” assertions. There are a few nice nuggets but it’s too hard to find them in the sea of been-there-done-that.
