French atheism. And what's new and interesting about that is, what? again?

Carl Olson

The only difference I can see between French atheism and English atheism is the former is much more anti-Semitic. Very disturbing.

RickP

When an atheist blames religion for all the blight of humanity he is enlightened, if a religious believer offers any critique of atheism, he is a fanatic.

I agree with Mr. Onfray that humans must employ "sound use of our understanding, rational ordering of our minds...". Most freshmen in high school are taught this as when they begin to learn that such gross over generalization is fallacious in nature and cannot be supported by facts. He also chooses to follow the fallacy which puts style over substance, the manner in which an argument (or arguer) is presented/felt to affect the truth of the conclusion.

But, I should stop here or I would be guilty of a fallacy as well, an ad hominem/tu quoque by attacking Onfray for not practicing the very same rationality that he preaches.
