Last night the AFA’s Rise of Atheism website came under a denial of service attack.
When I last checked (two minutes ago) it was still down.
I feel I should be annoyed by this, but I’m not, and here’s why.
Second, it illustrates nicely the intellectual poverty of the enemies of freethinking and secularism.
Every religion is based on a tissue of myth and superstition, which falls to pieces when exposed to the light of reason. There’s no rational argument a believer can offer an atheist by which they might see the ‘error’ of their ways.
So given this evident truth, what are the committed theocrats to do?
The best, in fact the only, possible way to battle the advance of secularism is to intimidate, to silence, to attempt to shut it down.
They have no choice. If they didn’t do things like this, the power of religion in the world would quickly fade.
After all, reality has a well-known secular bias.
