“Stop Victimizing Your Sister with Reason

In Christianity & Atheism on June 21, 2010 by thesignalinthenoise Tagged: ,

Wiley Miller’s July 22, 2007 Non Sequitur includes a tag line reminiscent of claims I have heard often from those who are eager to attack faith: “Stop victimizing your sister with reason.” It’s a good line and one we should all bear in mind. But Wiley’s strip isn’t as one-sided as scientism’s advocates might assert. Danae is floating after all. Kate denies the reality of what she observes because of her preconceived notions of what the rules are.

So much for empiricism.
