Making incoherence believable

19315397. . . atheism, as any rational human being may come to understand it, is not a logically coherent position, but has only been made to seem so by a combination of hardcore marketing, propaganda and a socio-political scene ripe for the belief to take hold.

Celebrating skepticism

We live in a culture that has, for centuries now, cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than one who believes. You can be almost as stupid as a cabbage, as long as you doubt. The fashion of the age has identified mental sharpness with a pose, not with genuine intellectual method and character. Only a very hardy individualist or social rebel — or one desperate for another life — therefore stands any chance of discovering the substantiality of the spiritual life today. Today it is the skeptics who are the social conformists, though because of powerful intellectual propaganda they continue to enjoy thinking of themselves as wildly individualistic and unbearably bright.
