Bō Jinnabout this book: Traditionally, it has always been the "religious" that are expected to render apologies for their beliefs. These same demands have never been made of atheism, since atheism is usually characterized as the mere "rejection" of a set of claims- namely theistic/religious claims. However, the rising trend in contemporary atheism known as the 'New Atheist Movement' has caused many to voice concerns over a prevailing image of atheism as a new fundamentalist and militarist religion, comprising its own set of beliefs, manifestos and a congregation of eager acolytes to boot.
We find that there are many deep-seated philosophical tensions in atheist thought which are simply ignored at the best of times: What warrant for rational belief is left when mankind becomes redefined as the chance explosion of automata + chance + time? Is this a viable worldview? And what has filled the gaping hole in the human soul after the exhilarating rush of the great metaphysical rebellion has blown over?
The 'Illogical Atheism' series comprises a comprehensive four-part analysis of the new atheist worldview from the journalistic and philosophical academic perspective of former atheist/agnostic, with long experience in new atheist culture. The scope of this work is to raise awareness toward the propagandist maneuvers employed by the leaders of this movement which have penetrated the public consciousness, particularly through the medium of the internet; proliferating forms of atheistic argumentation and belief that are profoundly illogical and anti-philosophical which, coupled with the systematic use of propaganda, has led thousands of adolescent men and women to a rather disturbing hatred for organized religion.
The Illogical Atheism series comprises one of the most complete and intimate analyses of the contemporary atheist culture available.
