Atheist Meme of the Day: Accepting Criticism

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

If you care whether the things you believe are true, you ought to welcome it, or at least accept it, when people point out problems with your beliefs. And that applies to religion. When believers call atheists disrespectful or intolerant simply for making a case against religion, they’re prioritizing their beliefs over the truth. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    Trouble is, I find it really hard to accept criticism. I know that is not an acceptable reason for not accepting criticism, but, disturbingly, an intellectual understanding of why it is important to accepting criticism does not do much to make it easier to accept criticism.
