What I Am Reading


Dear Lucy,
I have just started reading, "The Irrational Atheist", by Vox Day. Here's an excerpt from Amazon:
A perceptive examination of modern day atheism, this book challenges the
argument that religion and reason are fundamentally at odds—a contention made by
three prominent scholars on atheism: Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Sam
Harris. While other religious apologetics have challenged atheism on theological
or biblical grounds, this book fights fire with fire, disproving the scholars'
logic through modern, secular reason. Rigorously documented and supported by
hard factual data, this careful analysis is critical reading for any religious
person seeking to rebut the assertions of new atheists and essential information
for any open-minded atheist who wants his beliefs to stand on firm ground.

I stumbled upon this book while looking up Dawkins on the library catalogue. Figure I might as well get this guy's argument as well.

I hope it is an interesting read.
