About the book

Proponents of the New Atheist movement commonly use scientific discourse to make a case against theism. Richard Dawkins famously positions Darwinian evolution as a replacement for the ‘God Thesis’. New Atheists like A.C Grayling, Christopher Hitchens and others make the case that belief in religion is inhibiting to science.

Moreover, New Atheists claim that science can tell us all we need to know about the world. On this view, reference to a divine being is superfluous. This small book is a refutation of these claims. By referencing the works of western intellectuals, the author demonstrates decisively how flawed these postulations are. The author is able to show that despite the seemingly forceful and pervasive nature of New Atheist claims in public discourse, the actual success of New Atheists is largely over-rated.
