Chris takes on Dawkins


No, not I but someone far better at this sort of thing, Christopher Heard of Higgaion. See The God Delusion, chapter 2, sections 1-3 I will follow Stephen Cook (whose post led me to this review) and point out this prescient quote.

I am ready to assume that Dawkins has actually thought through various arguments for and against God’s existence and has rationally reached the conclusion that no such being exists. However, as a matter of argumentation and rhetoric, Dawkins does not appear, in chapter 2, to actually be willing to test the God Hypothesis, or even to understand it very well. His primary mode of engagement with it seems to be mockery, and that hardly makes for reasoned discourse.

Sadly, that seems to sum up much of Dawkins’ work.
