A.N. Wilson

September 3, 2009

I know this is old news, but I found it interesting that A.N. Wilson has returned to Christianity, and has begun attacking anti-Theists.

You can read the article here.

    Is he normally as much of an asshole as he seems to be from this article? Ad hominem, daddy issues, playground beliefs, “crazy feminists”…all this without once honestly engaging the other side or actually addressing their criticisms, and painting his own as innocents abused by those cruel, crazy atheists.

    “Of course, only hard evidence will satisfy the secularists, but over time and after repeated readings of the story, I’ve been convinced without it.”

    He is upfront at least that there is no hard evidence. I wonder if he had read the Koran or Bhagavad-Gita over and over again that that would have convinced him of something else.

    -Sadly..blah blah… believe it all in some symbolic or contorted way which, when examined, turns out not to be belief after all.

    Which is exactly what he does. He does not take it literally but uses the story as some symbol of his life. His religion is dull and wishy washy. No wonder no-one wants it.

    I think the procession was quaint and historical, but I shouldn’t be made to feel that I should respect it because it’s “traditional”.

    -Most of the greatest writers and thinkers of the past 1,500 years have believed it.- and if they hadn’t the burning of the heretics would have made for a lovely fire.

    Man, I’ve read The Last Unicorn about a hundred times, and I don’t believe that’s real. Be awesome if it was, though.

    Well the Bible can be pretty awesome in parts (and pretty awful in others). I’ve read parts of it plenty of times, don’t believe in it myself. Like The Last Unicorn and other great works of literature, like Greek and other mythologies, it is an amazing treasure trove that we can draw upon to illustrate ideas or just to ponder.

    One can take the position of the Sea of Faith crowd, but, I don’t think A. N. Wilson has. God didn’t create man, man created God.

    -Just what we need, more attacking.-

    Weak and unfullfilling attacks. Meh, a few bites around the ankle. So what. His wishy washy lovey dovey nonsense won’t wash with many.
