Some who object to religious beliefs say they are a product of where we were born. What’s curious about this objection is not that it’s not true, but that it’s said in such a manner as if the teller was not affected by it. However, the statement contains the seeds of the teller’s demise too. For if it is true, the atheist who employs this argument in the service of atheism is trying to convince you to be one because he was born this way. The only force this argument contains is in the mistake of the hearer who thinks the man telling him this has somehow escaped the clutches of the argument. But, the chains of the argument cannot be broken, or its force is lost. So, why should the bias of one man’s birth be more important than the bias of another man’s birth?
