Welcome to our world Massimo Pigliucci, welcome to our world.
It seems as if Massimo Pigliucci has just discovered that PZ Myers is a chronic besmircher and launches into illogical rants against anyone and everyone with whom he disagrees. Massimo Pigliucci seems to have noticed this because one of his colleagues, Michael De Dora, is the most recent of PZ Myers’ targets.
In that which follows I will 1) agree with Richard Dawkins, 2) point out his “faith” based adherence to atheistic materialism and 3) answer his ultimate question.
In part 1; I explained that atheists who claim to base their atheism on science are actually admitting to purposefully employing a method, the scientific method, that was intelligently designed to only explore the material, which observes and experiments upon the material and does so in order to come to material conclusions and then claim that the material is all that there is.
Massimo Pigliucci treks from science and philosophy to urging us to “reject religious nonsense” and affirming that “no scientist today would defend…the original version of Darwin’s theory.”
Pigliucci is the professor of ecology and evolution at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and chair of the Department of Philosophy at Lehman College. He is also an opposer of all things creationist or intelligent design. He elucidates a point from which I will build; first consider his, then mine.
