Atheism

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Consider these two popular books about atheism, The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason by Sam Harris, and The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.

These books take an absolute stand against religion, bemoaning the link between fundamentalism and blind faith on the one hand, and violence and the degradation of reason on the other hand.

Unlike these works, my own two books, Love, Wisdom, and God, and The American Psyche in Search of its Soul, advocate for a renewal of spiritual values in modern life. However, my books do not disagree with the antagonism of these authors toward fundamentalism and irrationality. Rather, I am advocating for a form of spirituality aimed at the perfection of the soul. In their deepest sense, religious stories are allegorical, psychological teachings. But atheist writers like Dawkins and Harris do not see this because they cannot get passed their antagonism toward literalism.
