Russell Was Right
“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.” – Bertrand Russell
I think Russell was spot on.
In my interactions with various apologists online, such as Sye Ten Bruggencate, Alan Rhology, Bob Sorensen, and Joe Cienkowski, I repeatedly encounter a level of absolute certainty that’s almost completely absent from the side of non-believers. It seems that blind, unquestioning faith leads to this sort of thing.
Funny thing is, the ‘I’m RIGHT cos GOD SAYS I AM!!!!’ crew only come across as unbearable, and are almost certainly not winning converts.
