Words of Comfort: Blasphemy that doesn't count.


“You also need to remember that blasphemy only counts if you believe. Many non deists do not recognize blasphemy since they have nothing to blaspheme against.”

That’s like saying, “Judge, you need to remember that rape only counts if you believe it is rape. I don’t recognize rape.” It is amazing that anyone who purports to be intelligent would think that something doesn’t exist just because he or she doesn’t believe in it. If I don’t believe in the sun because it’s cloudy, it doesn’t disappear just because of my lack of belief.
