I have emerged from my cave ...

to commend to your attention a recent review of Hitchens' God is Not Great, penned by a theist.

Even as an unbeliever, I must confess to a sort of embarrassment over the recent spate of atheistic manifestos. I'm no fan of Dick Dawkins (The Blind Calumniator), and have not been favorably impressed by Sam Harris' anti-theistic writing either. While I admire Hitchens a great deal, I believe that, by venturing into this territory, he's decidedly out of his element . There is such a thing - a rare thing, indeed - as a profound atheism, but I have yet to detect evidence of it in the polemics of the aforesaid atheistic evangelists.

I'm now off to Alaska, but hope to get the 'ol quill more regularly in hand, here at my blog, in a few weeks time
