This is from Steve Hays on the Triablogue blog. He writes:
In my experience, internet atheists typically act like lawyers. Lawyers only argue their side of the case. And they use whatever argument is convenient. …It’s funny how utterly hidebound and anti-intellectual they are. That’s why they regard it as treasonous when a real philosopher like Thomas Nagel let’s [sic] down the cause by honestly considering the other side of the argument–even though that’s precisely what a philosopher is supposed to do. That’s called critical sympathy.
I realize people have difficulty seeing their own faults, but this is blindness on another level.
