PZ Myers proves Paul Kurtz, the father of secular humanism, was another atheist failure without a legacy

On September 30, 2012 I posted an article entitled Paul Kurtz, the father of secular humanism, is another atheist failure without a legacy  The article offered various pieces of data and other information demonstrating that Paul Kurtz was an unmemorable failure.

And now the atheist and evolutionist PZ Myers has further demonstrated that Kurtz did not lead a life of achievement, but one of unnotable folly.

In a October 21, 2012, in a Freethoughtblog.com post entitled Paul Kurtz is dead, Myers writes:
One of the most influential figures in modern skepticism and atheism is no more: Paul Kurtz has died at the age of 86.
That's it.  Myers writes a 23 word blog post commemorating someone who is supposedly "one of the most influential figures in modern skepticism". It certainly seems as though Kurtz wasn't all that profound or memorable even in the eyes of his fellow atheists.  Myers  gives him a mere 23 word lip service blog post concerning his departure.

The very next day, on October 22, 2012,  PZ Myers writes a blog post titled FtB Party! which is 138 words long and describes an upcoming atheist party.

The proverb "success has many fathers, failure is an orphan" seems very apt proverb to describe the atheist Paul Kurtz's lack of legacy.  

And judging by the information in these articles, it does not seem as PZ Myers is going to leave a legacy:

  1. your evidence that paul kurtz was a failure is a 23-word blog post mentioning his death? that's pretty pathetic, even for you. i guess publishing some 20 odd books and teaching philosophy at prominent universities doesn't mean much to you. of course it doesn't.

    1. Giovanni,

      A few points:

      1. One of the foundations of sound philosophy is logic. I notice you used the fallacy of exclusion and did not address this information: http://questionevolution.blogspot.com/2012/09/paul-kurtz-another-atheist-failure.html

      See fallacy of exclusion: http://onegoodmove.org/fallacy/exclus.htm

      2. Publishing books is not a grand achievement. I think you are confusing activity with achievement.

      3. The consensus of economics professors did not see the 2008 financial crisis coming.

      An American study found that forty-five percent of students achieved no significant improvement in their critical thinking, reasoning or writing skills during their first two years of college. After four years, 36 percent displayed no significant increases in these so-called "higher order" thinking skills. See: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2011/01/18/106949/study-many-college-students-not.html

      A very large percentage of college students are graduating and finding out they are unemployable and saddled with a lot of debt. See: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ccap/2011/04/05/the-higher-education-bubble/

      So much for the prestige of academia!

      4. Are you willing to have a debate centered around the 15 questions for evolutionists (see: http://creation.com/15-questions )
      via a recorded oral debate which would be distributed to tens of thousands of people.

      If you are confident in your evolutionary beliefs, please make the necessary arrangements via this free chat room: http://login.meetcheap.com/conference,89538844 You can make the necessary arrangements with the chat room moderators Shockofgod or VivaYehshua.
