The New Atheism: a Reply

Coilin Owens

The books by Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens have been best sellers for good reasons: they are superficially well written and attack obvious weaknesses in some aspects of institutional religions. They do not examine their own assumptions, are selective in their use of evidence, and rather than engaging in serious philosophic argumentation, indulge in popular entertainment and Oxbridge rhetoric.
