Neo-Atheists and Easter
In the light of Easter, E.J. Dionne Jr. criticizes neo-atheism. It is a good column, be sure to read it.
From the introduction:
While some Christians harbor doubts about Christ’s actual physical resurrection, hundreds of millions believe devoutly that Jesus died and rose, thus redeeming a fallen world from sin.
Are these people a threat to reason and even freedom?
It’s a question that arises from a new vogue for what you might call neo-atheism…
As Dionne writes, neo-atheists are dogmatic themselves as well. They can also accuse religious individuals of being intolerant but it is quite interesting to note that these neo-atheists are incredibly intolerant and arrogant themselves.
Besides Dionne’s column, also be sure to read this article at CNN by Dr. Francis Collins: a Christian scientist.
