The Empire Strikes Back

In today’s Wall Street Journal is an essay aimed at the advancing ranks of atheist authors. The names mentioned are Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Victor Stenger, but the brunt of the artillery is directed at Mr. Hitchens (who is evidently a friend of the author, Peter Berkowitz, a fellow of Stanford University’s Hoover Institution). It is a good response, and raises a number of worthwhile points. I expect that Christopher Hitchens can be counted on to respond, but I have a few comments to make as well, which I will offer shortly. Meanwhile, read the Berkowitz item here.
