Take the Idealolgical Turing Test

I'd strongly encourage all our readers to head over to Leah Libresco's blog and participate in the 2013 Ideological Turing Test.

The purpose is to see how well Christians and Atheists understand each other's thinking. A panel of guest bloggers (currently still anonymous, but I can tell you that I am one of them this year) each answer a pair of questions: once honestly and once trying to write as an honest member of the opposing camp. Readers are then asked to read the entries and vote on whether they think the answer were written by a real co-religionist or a faker.

This year's questions deal with euthanasia and polyamory. The first two Christian entries are up here and here, so head on over and decide whether you think they're written by real Christians or by atheists trying to pass for Christian. More entries will be going up every day for the next couple weeks, so keep checking back!

Reading the first entry made me wonder whether some mischievous believers were trying to make the test more interesting by trying to write as they think a non-believer panelist would. Just to see whether they'd be "outed" anyway.
