Skepticon has got the atheism engines firing up again in my brain. Today I made a shitty graphic to illustrate my opinion on moderate religiousness, and why I think it’s still a problem (although not as large a problem as extreme religiousness). Here you go, internet:
Belief in the supernatural is irrational. How irrational depends on how extreme or absurd the belief is. If you’re a member of a moderate religion, then you’re a member of a religion that does a lot less harm than fundamentalist religions. That said, harm only reaches zero when irrationality reaches zero, and for irrationality to reach zero, supernatural beliefs must also be at zero. As JT Eberhard is fond of saying, we have a moral obligation to be reasonable.
