The so-called “new atheists” have recently made strong, surprising appearances on the best-seller lists. Books such as ‘The God Delusion,” “The End of Faith” and “God is Not Great” have been selling well and sharpening the edges of the never-ending debate between believers and non-believers. Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn discusses how this development might impact separation issues.This meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
If it wasn’t so far away from me… and on a weekday night… I’d *so* be there.
Zorn is a great writer and someone who understands atheist issues. If you get a chance to go, I’m sure this would be worth your time.
