And here’s another stupid atheist meme that I’m seeing circulate all over the place. It’s one of dozens and dozens of false quotes from Ted Cruz being passed around like a holiday fruit cake, usually accompanied by statements like “OMG, he’s so stupid!”
Except he never said this. You can figure that out with about 10 seconds on Google. But almost no one bothers to check because they want it to be true and it conforms to what they think is true, so therefore it must be true and no effort need be made to confirm it. It slips easily into our brains and short circuits our rationality. It makes us intellectually dishonest and inconsistent.
