Gnu atheists are such philistines

First, a sarcasm warning. Not all the sentiments in the following paragraph are to be taken at face value - just so y'all are clear on that.

Jerry Coyne has a post about James Joyce's story "The Dead", from Dubliners. Obviously this is further proof that those goddamn new gnu atheists are enemies of the arts and humanities, insensitive to language, and prone to a dreadful scientism according to which nothing is worth doing unless it involves the cold-blooded application of a large scientific instrument.
