I have been frustrated at the verbal strikes against atheists who make the strong equation between science and atheism, and the criticism from groups who think it should be toned down. Yes, the "Accomodationism" thing, being lobbed at those who name them the Poster Boys, or the New Atheist Noise Machine.
But do they know if that has any real effect on the lack of interest in science in the United States? Polls show that since the New Atheists started publishing their wildly popular books, that while the acceptance of Evolution, Cosmology and other shapers of the "Life, The Universe and Everything" have not gained appreciably nor has there been a correlational drop.
At Quiche Moraine, I ask the Accommodationists to stop "shaming" atheists,
and to develop approaches, you know, Scientifically.
