To Study Atheism Is To Study Nothing?
“If atheism is ‘not a belief,’ if it has no positive affirmations, as so many Internet atheists keep saying, why do I get so many hits when I google ‘study atheism’? If all these atheists were right, then that would be synonymous with ‘study nothing.’
My favorite hit on that search is the toddler t-shirt that says, ‘I’d rather be studying atheism.’ I get it, in fact I’ve felt that way often enough: it means, ‘I’d rather not be studying anything at all.’”
