I’m right, cos I’m right, which I knew all along
I am certain—one hundred percent!
There is zero percent of a chance I am wrong
And I’m certain I said what I meant.
There’s no reason for me to be changing my mind
Like that Dawkins, all wriggly and squirmy
No reason to look at the evidence, either—
I know it will only confirm me.
I’m pointing at Dawkins with utter delight
While his atheist followers grieve,
Cos I’m certain the way we decide who is right
Is how strongly believers believe!
Fun stuff, after the jump:
If you’re a fan of Catholic-style torture porn, click here. Beyond the photo, the same stuff we have come to expect:
In an embarrassing (for the Atheists) and rare show of common sense, Richard Dawkins admitted to be only sure to 6.9 sevenths (which, to you and I who do not have a book to promote, means around 98.6%) God does not exist. This leaves only space for the conclusion (as in such things tertium non datur) Dawkins considers the existence of God a 1.4% probability.
In my book, this means Dawkins not only maintains he is not an atheists, but maintains Atheists are wrong. Always in my book, a 1.4% probability of being wrong in your supposition qualifies you as an agnostic, albeit of a rather obdurate sort.
In the black and white world where a given shade of gray must fall on one side or the other of your line, it appears that dark charcoal gray counts as pristine snowy white.
Contrast this with, say, myself:
I am absolutely certain God exists. Not to 6.9 sevenths, not even to 6.99 sevenths. I am 100% certain, period.
Because we all know that the real measure of the truth of a concept is how firmly you believe in it. And let’s face it, anyone who didn’t believe 100% would be ashamed to have put that photo on his site.
Seriously, though, this guy desperately needs to watch Bronowski’s “Knowledge or Certainty“. The ability to admit uncertainty is not a weakness, but a strength. The ability to recognize and learn from the times when we were wrong (or inaccurate) is crucial if we are to progress. “There is no absolute knowledge” is the first step to understanding.
