Fundamentalister

Fundamentalister

Her er et citat fra Richard Dawkins vist meget passende:

…Maybe scientists are fundamentalist when it comes to defining in some abstract way what is meant by ‘truth’. But so is everybody else. I am no more fundamentalist when I say evolution is true than when I say it is true that New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere. We believe in evolution because the evidence supports it, and we would abandon it overnight if new evidence arose to dispute it. No real fundamentalist would ever say anything like that…

En lille sproglig tilføjelse (som jeg også nævner på Ateisme-siden): lad os (på dansk) kun tale om beviser indenfor matematik (og af historiske og kulturelle årsager, måske jura). Sandsynliggørelse synes jeg langt bedre dækker det, vi – både religiøse, troende, ateister, agnostikere osv. – forsøger at beskrive.
