US: No New Atheists were harmed in the production of this article…
…but some straw men got a hell of a bashing.
Sean McElwee thinks religion will survive, because New Atheists are a bunch of poopy-heads. Or something.
The fundamental error in the “New Atheist” dogma is one of logic. The basic premise is something like this:
1. The cause of all human suffering is irrationality
2. Religion is irrational
3. Religion is the cause of all human suffering
Said no New Atheist, ever. Or any old one, for that matter.
