As I write, the Council for Secular Humanism is wrapping up its Los Angeles conference entitled Setting the Agenda: Secular Humanism’s Next 30 Years. On the conference’s second day, Lauri Lebo reported in these pages that the program included a discussion about how best to deal with religious belief and its relationship to science. The session was named “Science and Religion: Confrontation or Accommodation?” Or, to be abundantly clear, the question was: How should atheists and secular people deal with religious people? Should they be accommodated or confronted?
My answer is: Neither one. Perhaps those atheists who want to advance their cause should consider—just for a moment, and as a very live option—disbelieving.
