Wait a minute! Didn’t I say here that the exact same article was pending at Support Atheism?
I did. It was quietly, unceremoniously put down:
“Anton, I don’t see an the conversation being worthy of publishing as it seems to become more of foray into semantics. Now, I do see an article about the fact that terrorism and 9/11 is as motivated by sociopolitical factors as religion – and an exploration of the fact that socio-political and economic factors are also what lead to fundamentalism.
“That would be a great article. It is hard to argue about actions of those terrorists culminating into such an atrociity w/out the quran’s justification of martyrdom and jihad. And the typical deathcult idea of a paradise in the afterlife though.”
I suggest that the real reason my article was killed, or in the very least a more practical reason, was that it’s critical of a fellow Support Atheism contributor, and we can’t have one SA contributor criticizing another SA contributor in the SA magazine, now can we? I didn’t whine about it on the Support Atheism forum, however, and I won’t whine about it here.
