Saw this on Mystagogy.
Apparently Penn Jillette has written just what the public was clamoring for: Another cultural mandate for anti-religion. (Hooray! It had been WAY too long since Hitchens and Maher told everyone that civilization can’t move forward if people keep believing in God.) So Piers Morgan had him on his show and talked about it for a couple minutes. Well, they had some big topics like celebrity baby-naming queued up, so that’s all they could spare.
But I shouldn’t squawk. It’s more pushback than Jillette is likely to get anywhere else. And Morgan gets big points for asking the point-blank questions where atheists will always flounder unless they lie outright … “So where do you think we come from? … What do you think happens to us when we die?”
I know the Christian faith depends on a lot more than just these sorts of childish queries. But they’re a starting place, and given that so many atheists these days want to end all organized religion everywhere, I think there’s value to somebody asking the questions.
