I Don't Believe in Atheists by Chris Hedges
I Don't Believe in Atheists

gregory.heaton, August 8, 2008

Hedges point is very clear, I think. "We are not saved by reason. We are not saved by religion."

Harris, Hitchens, Hawkins and Dennet, very clearly think that faith is a scourge to be wiped from the Earth. Once we free ourselves from this tyranny, we'll all live happily and peacefully without prejudice and hate.

I don't agree with his polarization--that somehow these folks are fundamentalists on one side of a faith line. His argument that the Enlightenment caused the Nazis and Gulags is foolish.

But his jeremiad is aimed at people who think they KNOW how this little world works.
