Milo Takes on a “Kind Atheist” During Speaking Event
During his recent tour in Australia, Milo Yiannopoulos took on an atheist who suggested the conservative speaker is a hypocrite for upholding both the idea of critical thinking, but for believing in God.
At one point, the atheist refers to belief in God as “believing in a supernatural being that wrote the Bible” as an implied criticism. While the atheist suggests no one is perfectly reasonable, he suggests that Milo is simply unreasonable for believing in God and in critical thinking.
Basically, the question is Christianity vs. Rational Thought.
Milo does an excellent job of replying, drawing ties to Christianity, the Protestant work ethic and science and showcasing how well rational thought supports theocracy. He also outlines the many people who have spent their lives immersed in fact, reason and science, but who also embrace religion. He separates Islam from Christianity and showcases how this school of thought is simply not compatible with the way of live embraced by Christians and even with secular capitalists.
In tying religion to reason, Milo kindly but firmly corrects this questioner, and even verges into the explanation of how he can support both the Catholic church and have an alternative lifestyle.
Very reasonable discourse on both sides leads to serious and clear discussion of the convergence of religion and reason and pure logic. The clip below is well worth a listen if you have atheists to deal with, or feel challenged by those who assert you are simply unreasonable for believing in God.
