“It’s not that I think
non-believers are bad people. It’s just that I don’t think your beliefs are something you arrived at by thinking about your life experience and personal values. No, what’s going on is that you are infected with the disease of sin the religion meme, for which Christianity skeptical atheism is the only cure.”
Also this is why I side-eye meme theory in general–it’s an idea cooked up by a dabbler with a known agenda working outside his normal field, with no empirical basis, published in a popular book rather than anything peer-reviewed, and which justifies using the language of disease to describe any idea you don’t like while maintaining an appearance of clinical, scientific detachment. Kind of suspicious.
