Do you like hospitals, universities, the calender, champagne, weekends, and Aristotle?

H/T to Ignatius Insight "Catholics and other Christians need to take seriously the philosophical and even polemical arguments made by atheists, not to so much to put more strident atheists in their place, but to show, in a variety of ways, that Christianity is not only not contrary to reason, goodness, and order, but is an essential reason why they still exist today in the face of irrationality, evil, and chaos. This means, among others things, a decent understanding of Church history and a basic grounding in philosophy, both of which can be obtained, to a large degree, through reading books and articles by authors such as Chesterton, Sheen, C.S. Lewis, Peter Kreeft, James V. Schall, S.J., Frank Sheed, Thomas Howard, Josef Pieper, Thomas Dubay, S.M., and others."

I so much appreciate your post; I cannot agree more. For the life of me, I cannot understand how, time after time, interviewers let Dawkins get away with such statements as, "Well, you don't accept the existence of Zeus, Hera, etc.,do you?" as if belief in Zeus bears any relation whatso ever to Self-Subsistent Being. It is absolutely galling that this blithering idiot should be allowed to so dominant the airwaves with his giberish!

I don't believe Dawkins is malicious, he's just plain ignorant of the most basic arguments for God's existence--but it's a culpable ignorance, he should know them and he doesn't except in the most cursory way.

Oh, I am so sick of this man!
