Jerry Coyne recently on the goals of New Atheism:
” And, when I say I want religion “eradicated,” this is what I mean: I want the young folk to realize that the superstitions of their elders are silly, and to cast them aside. Like Darwinian evolution itself, atheism progresses not by conversion of individuals, but by change between generations.”
It is difficult to see how that statement differs significantly from a proclamation by an Imam that Sharia should be the law of the land.
Fundamentalism is hardly limited to the religious.
