The New Atheism Denounced by Leading Atheist

From Between Two Worlds:

Interesting article here from atheistic philosopher of science Michael Ruse, who says that Dawkins’s The God Delusion makes him “ashamed to be an atheist,” that the New Atheists are a “bloody disaster.” In particular, he thinks that the New Atheists are doing a “grave disservice” to (1) the cause of science, (2) the cause of scholarship; (3) the cause of fighting Creationsim, and (4) the cause of fighting to keep Creationism out of schools. On Dawkins in particular: Ruse says that he would fail any introductory course in philosophy or religion.

He also doesn’t like Ben Stein!
