Atheist Meme of the Day: Atheists Aren’t Close-Minded


Scarlet letter Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day, from my Facebook page. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Having an open mind doesn’t mean thinking all possibilities are equally likely. It means being willing to consider new ideas if the evidence supports them…. and to give up old ideas if the evidence is against them. And that’s just as true for atheists as it is for anyone else. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    That isn’t just religion. Many people act like the reason other people disagree with, um, I’ll call it ‘My own knowledge’ is they don’t know enough about ‘My own knowledge’ to see how right it is yet. You just aren’t listening hard enough to understand ‘My own knowledge,’ you are too closed minded to understand otherwise you would obviously agree. It is just a meme using a very human bias to survive.
    Man, though, funny how religion uses an immature defense like that so often it has become a stereotype.
