Getting Rid of Religion, Again

A young man named Sam Harris has written a scathing book against religion: The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason. Based on this dissecting review in Christianity Today, the book is well written but poorly premised and more poorly reasoned. Harris believes that “Words like 'God' and 'Allah' must go the way of 'Apollo' and 'Baal', or they will unmake our world." Harris appears to use the same types of arguments most of us bantered about during college. The Christianity Today review is a pretty good resource for understanding the replies every Christian ought to have at their disposal when dealing with adolescent atheists.
