NY Times Reviews Dawkins's Anti-Theist Book
Jim Holt has written a thoughtful review in The New York Times of Richard Dawkins's new book, The God Delusion. Holt does not exactly defend theism, but he lets some of the air out of Dawkins's overinflated tires, noting that Dawkins's treatment of the arguments for God's existence does not do justice to the philosophical sophistication involved. And so on. Given that Dawkins is one of the leading anti-theistic intellectuals of our time, this is heartening, especially given the source.
