With a title like this, you'd think I was going to have a rant about a shitty Christian apologist making outrageous claims about atheism.
Except I'm about to go on a rant about two atheists that I'd otherwise admire making outrageous and indefensible claims about theists.
I'm talking about David Silverman and John Loftus.
There's been some buzz because Justin Schieber publicly criticized this meme from David Silverman's book Fighting God, which was created by Dr. David Madison:
#atheism #secular #humanism #atheist #humanist— David Madison (@DavidMadisonPhD) July 22, 2017
More than 200 titles in the Cure-for-Christianity Library: https://t.co/cSHRx0cdz3…/ pic.twitter.com/HP69Gp5Ehq
This prompted some rather astounding defenses of Dave Silverman on Twitter from one John Loftus:
Yep. Honesty requires atheists to tell the truth, not placate them, no more than doctors with patients. @MrAtheistPants @RealAtheology https://t.co/Yr2QlFMHxX— John W. Loftus (@loftusjohnw) July 23, 2017
So rather than go back and forth with John Loftus on Twitter, I had a brief window of free time to give a full treatment to the criticism of this idea.We're not saying the same thing. Think again. https://t.co/wvpejos2Ta— John W. Loftus (@loftusjohnw) July 24, 2017
