I recently read that the official Richard Dawkins website reviews four books, each competing for the place of the best response to the book by Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion.
The four books are Deluded by Dawkins, The Darwin Delusion?, The Dawkin Letters and Darwin’s Angel.
The winner according to the reviewer, Paula Kirby, and the one most likely to pose serious rebuttal of The God Delusion is The Dawkin Letters by David Robertson.
I then looked at the Dawkins site but couldn’t find the review. I did not want to spend time trawling through it just for that item. I did find some of Robertson’s contributions on the site though. The atheistic responses are entertaining in their desperation.
Robertson believes that Dawkin’s book, at an intellectual and logical level, “..really misses the mark.” He believes it “comes across as a desperate attempt to shore up secularism’s crumbling defences.”
David Robertson can be seen talking about his new book on YouTube on the following links:
Robertson’s old post on the Dawkins site is long but interesting. In it he gives us an interesting insight into the ‘official religion’ of the BBC, secularism:
A few weeks ago it was reported that there was a meeting of BBC Executives where some had the gall to challenge the prevailing BBC philosophy. At that meeting it was admitted that the policy of the BBC was that secularism was the only philosophy to which others must eventually come. In other words other philosophies and belief systems can be tolerated but they must never be allowed any real say in the BBC. Some had the audaciousness to suggest that perhaps the BBC should recognise that secularism was a philosophy and not the philosophy.
As for me, I still don’t believe in atheists, I think they are just ‘God dodgers’.
