New Atheists

"For the new atheists, believing in God is a form of stupidity, which sets off their own intelligence. They write as if great minds had never before wrestled with the big questions of creation, moral law and the contending versions of revealed truth. They argue as if these questions are easily answered by their own blunt materialism. Most of all, they assume that no intelligent, reflective person could ever defend religion rather than dismiss it."
-Sam Schulman
