• When Facts Attack!

    I recently had a Christian message me to tell me that one of my articles offended him. He was apparently offended by my use of facts. I have known many other Christians who also seem to be offended by facts. They feel that the facts are attacking them and well they should because they are.

    The way I see it, you can either believe a bunch of made up stuff and call that crap, “Truth” or you can follow the evidence using the scientific method, changing your opinion when new evidence comes to light, and refer to your conclusions as facts. That’s the thing about facts; we can actually support them with evidence.

    Religious believers have a problem here… even the moderate religious believers. They have to admit that God is not a fact. God is merely a belief based on insufficient evidence.
