Attacking the “modern cult of atheism”

In the overheated prose of the Telegraph (a UK paper), the Archbishop of Canterbury “launched a fierce attack” this week on “the modern cult of atheism.” All I can say is, I hope so!

Dr Williams described Prof Dawkins as a “lively and attractive writer” but said his arguments were not fully engaging with religion.

He suggested that Prof Dawkins, the author of the best-selling The God Delusion and a leading Darwinist, was a good scientist but a poor philosopher.

“Our culture is one that deeply praises science, so we assume because someone is a good scientist, they must be a good philosopher,” he said in a lecture at Swansea University.
