• A New Book Review is Coming Soon!

    Ultimately, this book looks to demonstrate the irrationality of the New Atheism (as a group) and that atheism (as a worldview) is lacking in justification. Allow me quote to quote one of the authors, Tom Gilson, from Chapter 1: “Reason is the New Atheists’ weakness, not their strength. Their books, articles, and debates are riddled with fallacy, appeals to emotion, and mishandling of evidence. Their claim to reason is often much more a matter of public relations than competence in reasoned discourse.”

    Later on in the chapter he writes that “the New Atheists’ ownership claim on the brand of reason is an empty one. They don’t practice it at all well, and in fact as we shall see, reason fits poorly within their presumptions and presuppositions. Reason rightly belongs to God and to the Way of Christ.”

    Sounds like a pretty tall order. What do you think? Do you think the authors pulled off proving this?

    Within two weeks I will post the first installment and will continue to post a chapter each week until I’m done.
