Atheist Meme of the Day: Modern Theology is Bunk

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!

“You haven’t studied modern theology” is a terrible argument against atheism. Many atheists have studied modern theology… and found it very much wanting. It either dresses up the same old bad arguments in prettier language, or it defines God so abstractly it’s indistinguishable from atheism. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.


  1. Henry says

    I think the eagerness of theists to debate atheists and skeptics demonstrates that they are the ones who don’t understand modern theology, which, as you note, is essentially atheism in a collar. If they truly believed what they claim to believe, theists would stop looking for a rational basis for faith, and would laugh off every atheist challenge.
