Coyne asks: why would the NCSE have a Faith Project, but not an Atheism Project?
Coyne has a point. Evolutionary illiteracy is widespread in America- among atheists no less than Christians. America’s atheists surely could use some remedial education. Philosophical illiteracy, materialist delusion, and coprolalia are endemic in the atheist community. Ask an atheist-in-the-street to define “punctuated equilibrium,” he’ll likely reply that it’s a grammar rule. Ask him about “evolutionary saltation,” he’ll reply that it’s some kind of condiment. “Sexual selection” — he’ll reply that of course he supports gay marriage.
