I'm not saying there wasn't any science in there, but the point of the article was certainly not to teach new science or show discoveries or anything like that.

676 words about science 550 words about how atheists fail to explain science adequately

I'd say #science absolutely!! - but in the spirit of Hubski ecumenism I'll add #atheism because I can and you can't (yet) . Generally we don't control other people's labels, but we can expand them.

No one said that #science had to be

    to teach new science or show discoveries or anything like that.
We are more flexible at hubski about our labels. Someone interested in science might also be interested in how to explain it to others. I am.

Ecumenism is a word referring to attempts to create more unity and understanding among all xtian sects. Hubski ecumenism hmmmm - I don't know.

Surely you're joking - or maybe you just have a knee-jerk reaction to the "A" word.

The entire point of the article was about the teaching of science (i.e. explanation of current scientific knowledge, to laymen like Bill O'Reilly), and specifically about how atheists are not doing a terrific job of it.

Indeed. While I believe that this article does have some relevance to those who are interested in following science, that is secondary to it's focus on atheism.
