Hitchens’s Razor 2.0

To the Chief Musician. Set to “Mahalath.” A Contemplation of David. The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.

(Psalms 53:1) NKJV

Rather than demonstrating that “science” is based on evidence whereas faith isn’t, Christopher Hitchens showed, ironically, that he didn’t understand what evidence is or how it’s used.

In a rather embarrassing twist, here’s the new definition of Hitchens’s razor:

Hitchens’s razor is epistemological sleight-of-hand which fails to distinguish justified belief from opinion. It’s a tragic case of acquiring fame in the name of something that you don’t understand. It’s a major deity in the atheist pantheon, the subject of a lot of special pleading.
