PZ Myers Video: Science And Atheism Are Natural Allies January 30, 2011

The first, and most interesting, claim: “Nothing will ever prove that evolution is wrong.”

Second, and second most interesting, claim: “Nothing can prove the existence of gods, not one thing.”

Third, and third most interesting, claim: that all this entails not closed-mindedness but pragmatism.

Fourth, and fourth most interesting, claim: atheism is more than what he derisively calls “dictionary atheism” (the idea that all that atheism itself entails is the lack of belief in gods and nothing further). His argument is that atheism is built on positive values.

From the Humanist Canada/Atheist Alliance International 2010 Convention in Montreal, October 2, 2010.
