I’ve just read this headline on Stuff …
Backpacker jailed for stabbing man to death in row over God and evolution.
Now, before I open it, shall we place a bet on what side of the argument the person who did the stabbing was, and what side of the argument the en-stabulated person was?
I don’t even need to offer a real bet, do I? Because we all, even my Christian readers, know that the person who believes in the Sky Beards and Demons and Djinns and Goblins is going to be the one using the old Okay Fine Let’s See If Maybe You Can Rebutt My Friend Mr Slicey You Fucking Smart Ass argument, yes?
…and sure enough, clicking through, the guy who was stabbed is a biomedical scientist who was arguing the Negative on the subject of creationism. How about that. I, for one, am shocked.
Atheists don’t tend to kill people over which God they don’t believe in.
