On Preachers Who Don't Believe in God

On Preachers Who Don't Believe in God December 31, 2011

As a counterpoint to the infamous posts on atheists who believe in God, I offer Dennett and LaScola’s work on preachers who don’t believe in God.

Here is a Dennett and LaScola paper and here is their forthcoming website called The Clergy Project.

But wait!  Surely no atheist would believe in God!  And surely no preacher would deny God!

Well, no true atheist would believe in God, and no true preacher would deny God — just like no true Scotsman . . .

Thanks to Steve Schuler for the no true Scotsman suggestion.

Life is messy.  Religion is messy too.

Happy new year!
