Definitely not the most enthralling revenge tragedy I have encountered on my degree syllabus.

Are There Any Honest Atheists. Jeffrey Jay Lowder strikes me as one of the most fair-minded atheist thinkers; he’s civil, deeply thoughtful, and charitable to his opponents.

Further, he has no qualms about chastising his fellow atheists when their manner descends below that which is helpful in civil discourse, or when they make poor arguments. However, one book that kept popping up was C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity. So over the Christmas break I thought I’d give it a stab.

In all fairness, it is the best pro-Christianity book I have ever read. Lewis is very honest, recounting much of his own personal understanding and experience.

The article does give examples of "honest" atheists, Genersis; it is about the different philosophies of the "new atheists," which the article calls dishonest, and the existential-atheists of the 20th century such as Camus, Nietzsche, Matthew Arnold, and the playwrite Samuel Becket (creator of the simply atrociously dull Waiting for Gadot, and Endgame).
