Articles about New Atheists

The ‘New Atheists’ describe a modern movement in atheism, led by four prominent men: Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens.

While they don’t generally hold ideas that differ from regular atheism, their approach differs from the norm. They are essentially a group of evangelical atheists…that is, they are aggressively anti-religious, seeking converts as one would for a traditional religion. In their view, religion is irrational and superstitious. This should not be tolerated, but countered by argumentation. A general view, displayed by these ‘four horsemen’ and their followers, is that atheism is a more moral and honest framework than any religion could be.

There's a hot new video making the rounds. It's called Richard Dawkins - Beware the Believers, and it's very clever. It's so clever, in fact, that most people haven't been able to figure out whether it's poking fun at Darwinist materialists or Biblical creationists.
