Atheist Meme of the Day: “Open Your Heart” Is a Terrible Argument


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’d believe if you just opened your heart” is a terrible argument for religion. It’s basically saying, “If you bias yourself enough, you can convince yourself that this is true.” If religion were true, people wouldn’t need faith to believe it — it would be supported by good evidence. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    I think they leave off the end of that, which is: and don’t use your brain. I think my heart is open to the universe as it is. THAT, I believe in. I don’t need religion or a god for that. Nor do I need to convince myself to elevate fairy tales over reality.
