  1. Good article, I've ordered that "The joy of Secularism" book from the library. I don't neccessarily buy the argument that the "new" atheists are offering no alternative. Even Christopher Hitchens, perhaps the most agressive of the "new" atheists offers a compelling exhortation to his audience inhis conclusion to the Prestonwood Academy debate he had with Dembski (The Academy keeps removing the video from youtube as I don't think they liked it). He essentially says the struggle for knowledge, the struggle to know right from wrong is more important and more fulfilling than accepting a prescribed ethics.
