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:
