Atheism on Trial

Surprisingly there are several articles on Atheism up at Townhall today. Unsurprisingly they are all pretty negative towards it.

I was going to print quotes from them, but I've decided it's not worth it. If you are curious

Why Atheism Fails: The Four Big Bangs by Frank Pastore, in which he explains that since Science can't completely explain certain transitions (from non-life to life for example) it doesn't make sense.

Why Christopher Hitchens is not Great by Kevin McCullough in which he explains that Christopher Hitchens, despite providing intellectual support for the Iraq war and general war in the middle east, is in fact an angry soul. And that's why he rejects God. Also Christians opposition to condom distribution in Africa is sensible and logical.

Taking aim at God, and missing by Dinesh D'Souza is also about Hitchens. D'Souza laments that Hitchens didn't just write a book pissing on Islam, because that would be totally acceptable. But by critiquing Christianity as well, he misses the boat.

I don't really have much to say on this subject; I'd just point out that saying "Hooray for God" at Townhall is pretty much a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
