My pun muscles are letting me down if that's the best I can come up with. The New Humanist's "Zeal or no Zeal?" is perfect, and there must be other religion/game-show wordplay possibilities out there. I'll keep trying.

The point is, people in Turkey are going to be trying to convert some atheists on a TV panel show, by the clever application of flawless logic and the careful presentation of substantial evidence to support their beliefs. Well, probably not. I don't know how they're going to try doing it (though I haven't actually looked any further than this article, so maybe there's more info out there). But it seems like a weird idea.

Read a proper account of what I think about this over at Cubik's Rube.

Oooh that should be interesting. My dad is currently having debates with my cousins; they feel their Biblical knowledge can thwart his arguments. It's interesting. What his sister doesn't understand is that my dad (their uncle) is planting little seeds of doubt that will eventually grow in their brains. They're too young to really need the answers to the questions he's instilling, but someday... a light will come on.

Anyway... I just don't think they get it. Well, I know they don't. We know more than they do, but ya can't know what you don't know until you do.
