Trúin á trúarbrögđ

Daniel Dennet skrifar pistil í Guardian. Ţessi punktur um ţögla og hávćra trúleysingja "ég er trúleysingi en..." hittir í mark.

Today one of the most insistent forces arrayed in opposition to us vocal atheists is the "I'm an atheist but" crowd, who publicly deplore our "hostility", our "rudeness" (which is actually just candour), while privately admitting that we're right. They don't themselves believe in God, but they certainly do believe in belief in God. #

Ćtli hann hafi hitt Bjarna Harđarson?

I am confident that those who believe in belief are wrong. That is, we no more need to preserve the myth of God in order to preserve a just and stable society than we needed to cling to the Gold Standard to keep our currency sound. It was a useful crutch, but we've outgrown it. Denmark, according to a recent study, is the sanest, healthiest, happiest, most crime-free nation in the world, and by and large the Danes simply ignore the God issue. We should certainly hope that those who believe in belief are wrong, because belief is waning fast, and the props are beginning to buckle.

Ef Danir eru góđir ţví ţeir simply ignore the God issue eru ţeir ţá ekki ţöglir trúleysingjar? Er ţađ ţá ekki eiginlega sigur fyrir Ţjóđkirkju-skeytingarleysis-vanatrúarbragđa-Bjarna-Harđarsonar-leiđina?

Tja, nei. Bjarna-Harđarsonar-ríkiskirkju-leiđin gengur út á ađ auka veg ríkiskirkjunnar, t.d. međ trúbođi í skólum.

Ţađ er akkúrat öfugt viđ alla skeytingarleysi.

Ţađ er talsvert til í ţessu hjá Dawkins en mér finnst hann dálítiđ missa marks í gagnrýni á fimmta punktuinn: "I'm an atheist, but I wish to dissociate myself from your intemperately strong language." Hann virđist telja ađ ummćli eins og ţessi séu einhvern veginn einskorđuđ viđ trúmál en í stjórnmálum sé ţessu öfugt fariđ: "A politician may attack an opponent scathingly across the floor of the House and earn plaudits for his robust pugnacity."

En mér finnst eins og svipuđ ummćli séu einmitt iđulega viđhöfđ í stjórnmálum. "Ég er á móti ţví ađ Ísland gangi í Evrópusambandiđ EN..." Og síđan reyna menn ađ búa til eitthvert skilrúm milli sín og annarra sem eru sömu skođunar í grunninn en hafa á lofti gífuryrđi sem mađur vill ekki sjálfur skrifa undir.

(Fyrra kommentiđ mitt var annars meira stríđni en alvara.)
