Tim Challies (DR for Discerning Reader) interviews Douglas Wilson (DW), and here’s a profound question and answer:
DR: In Letter from a Christian Citizen you continually show where Harris is inconsistent with his own ideology. Is there any such thing as a completely consistent atheist?
DW: That’s the fun thing. No, there is no such thing as a consistent atheist. I believe there are degrees of attempted consistency—radical relativism is more consistent than the atheistic moralism represented by men like Harris, and nihilism is more consistent than radical relativism. But once you get to nihilism, and attempt to embrace full consistency (via suicide, say), you have thereby admitted that consistency is a virtue. But there are no virtues. Why be consistent? And to grasp that principle and lurch into attempts at random inconsistency is just another disguised attempt at consistency again. You can run but you can’t hide. Consistency is inconsistent. And inconsistency for the sake of consistency is also inconsistent.
The whole thing is here.
