    1. Eric Reitan’s Is God a Delusion? is a great response to the so-called new atheists: Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, and Victor Stenger. In Is God a Delusion?, Reitan argues that what the new atheists attack is largely a straw man: the new atheists attacks are aimed primarily at fundamentalist forms of religions, and Reitan argues forcefully that fundamentalist religion is really superstition and is not true religion at all.The superstitious fundamentalists wo [...]


    2. Over the last few years there have been many strident angry attacks on religions and belief in God. Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion is a manifestation of a trend to view theistic religious belief as irrational and inherently evil. Many within powerful religious organisations of our day have been almost as vitriolic in their rebuttals of the new atheists.This book is a powerful argument, rich in profound insight, and deep scholarship that points to a more balanced position between the two ext [...]


    3. So why is your booky bud reading THIS? And don't worry, this is a liberal (of course) academic type DEFENDING belief. So what's with Mark? (Conversation at social gathering: "Oh, he's a SCIentist."

He talks about those people, but this i [...]


    4. The author of this book uses philosophical arguments to poke holes in the aggressive atheists' case against God. He focuses particularly on Richard Dawkins and his book The God Delusion. He pretty much eats Dawkins for lunch as far as I'm concerned. Particularly effecting is his explication of the simple question, "Why is there something rather than nothing?" Why indeed. Unfortunately Reitan spends part of one chapter to explain why structured religious denominations that put stock in the concep [...]


    5. his specific arguments against 'new atheists' areOK, but his liberal presuppositions shine through, and that may actually be the strong point of this book, as many more people would agree with him contra the 'Brites' crowd if this were more widely read - but he is trenchantly on the Low-Christology religious Left.


    6. From LisaA philosophically sophisticated defense of theistic religion, responding to arguments of 'New Atheists' like Richard Dawkins, Dan Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens
