Mousavi on Things Atheists Shouldn’t Say

We clearly did not properly explain the hivemind concept to Kaveh Mousavi, who dares to disagree with me on a couple of the things I said atheists shouldn’t say. Which brings me to #10: Never disagree with me. Seriously, it’s worth reading, a thoughtful contribution to the discussion from a former Muslim perspective.

    I have to say that with the exception of the first day of my blog, I’ve never had so many hits. So from now on, I’m going to disagree with EVERYTHING you post. This is my golden path to fame and fortune.

    But seriously: I thank you again for starting the discussion, for linking to it, and for being such an awesome guy in general.

    I think the only way to settle this is with a CAGEMATCH!!!!

    Kaveh, many of us disagreed with Ed on his post too, so you’re in….well, questionable… company. 😉

    With no offense meant to Mr. Mousavi, apparently–according to the Saudi Arabian government–all atheists are terrorists, anyway.

    I think Mr Mousavi’s objections, while important are not huge and are at least partly a matter of perspective. Ed writes from an American society with a history of religious pluralism, where he is going to see a diversity of religions and a focus on not regarding them as all the same makes sense. Mousavi writes as an Atheist in a theocracy, when he sees religion he sees the power of the state coercing both opinions and actions, in that case it makes equal sense to focus on the religion of the powerful rather than the relatively rare and powerless alternative sects.
