Atheist Meme of the Day: Open-minded != Gullible

(Almost caught up so there really can be one a day…)

Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Being open-minded doesn’t mean thinking all possibilities are equally likely. It means being willing to consider new ideas if strong evidence supports them. And that’s just as true for religion as anything else. Atheists aren’t close-minded — we’ll happily reconsider the god hypothesis if we see some good evidence for it.
Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.
