Christopher Hitchens’ lies do atheism no favours

Curtis White is an atheist who fears that the scientism of new-Atheism if left unchallenged, will become a new and dangerous religion.

His book ‘The Science Delusion' deals with this extensively.  His article in Salon this last weekend, explores some of this religious fundamentalism in the world of Christopher Hitchens.

Of course when a Christian brings up similar issues about the new-Atheism they are often dismissed out of hand.  How ever it’s harder to dismiss a critique from one of their own.

Curtis White’s writing is good not because it proves God in any way, but because it reveals the religious fundamentalism and intellectual dishonesty of Ditchens et al.
