the new atheists
Very interesting article here about increasingly vocal atheism in the West, following 9/11 and the prevalence of harmful religion - Islamic fundamentalism, child-abuse cover-ups in the Catholic church, etc. The recent spate of books by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and John Humphreys, among others - non-religious people with things to say about religion - are signs of a bigger debate which we need to engage with.
