The GeoChristian

The Earth. Christianity. They go together.

Not quite so bright — part 2

Atheist philosopher Michael Ruse rips into the best-selling author of The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins:

“It is not that the atheists are having a field day because of the brilliance and novelty of their thinking. Frankly — and I speak here as a nonbeliever myself, pretty atheistic about Christianity and skeptical about all theological claims — the material being churned out is second rate. And that is a euphemism for “downright awful.”

————————————-

“It is simply that it (and the other works, some of which I have gone after elsewhere) is not very good. For a start, Dawkins is brazen in his ignorance of philosophy and theology (not to mention the history of science).”

————————————-

“Dawkins misunderstands the place of the proofs, but this is nothing to his treatment of the proofs themselves. This is a man truly out of his depth.”

Many read Dawkins’ works with a blind faith that the guy knows what he is talking about. It just isn’t so.

Ruse’s book review is in Isis, December 2007, 98(4), 814-816

I got the quotes from the Isis article from www.arn.org.

Grace and Peace
