James, since you don’t allow comments on your blog I’m going to have to comment on your “Vexation, but this time no rest” post here. (You don’t even support trackbacks)…
I’ve not read any of Richard Dawkins books but I have recently seen his documentary, “The Root of all Evil?” which is basically The God Delusion in 90 minutes. The content was somewhat concerning. Recently Wired ran an article called “The New Atheism“. After reading it I decided to re-embrace my Atheism with renewed vigor. The present rise of radical Islamism and Evangelical Christianity needs to be addressed. I plan on confronting peoples misplaced non-thinking religious dogma with a good, well argued, response where I can. Hopefully I won’t piss too many people off. 🙂 Though I need to study up on that a little. I should probably pick up Richards books, and perhaps one or two by Sam Harris too.
