» The Archbishop of Wales has said “virulent, almost irrational” attacks on religion were “dangerous” because they refused to allow any contrary viewpoint.

Not sure I can see how the willingness to test your ideas and reject those that don’t stand-up can be thought of as irrational fundamentalism. Indeed the problem I have is the blind acceptance and indoctrination of children with myths and legends.

» And by the way, Dr Morgan (Archbishop of Wales), the ‘Winterval’ meme isn’t true either

Winterval ran from November to January in ’97 and ’98 and was a promotional campaign to drive business into Birmingham’s town centre. During the christmas period, there were Merry Christmas banners, Christmas lights, Christmas trees and carol-singing.

“You might say that because science can explain just about everything but not quite, it is wrong to say we don’t need God. It’s also, I suppose, wrong to say we don’t need the Flying Spaghetti Monster.” (Dawkins)

One response to “Links for 2007.12.27”

  1. This tactic by Anglicans (Rowan Williams, Barry Morgan) of insulting those who don’t believe the following:
    * Virgins giving birth to male chidren
    * Men dying then a few days later becomming non-dead
    * Sentience surviving the end of bio-chemical and electrical activity in the brain.

    by calling them “fundamentalists” is despicable.
    It Anglicans who are unwilling to debate these matters.
    It Anglicans they who indoctrinate tiny children in these absurdities.
