Paul Jackson Is No Einstein

The Friendly Atheist points out the ignorance spewed in the article Atheist author no Einstein:

Paul Jackson [the article’s author] has a lot of say about Richard Dawkins and The God Delusion. Unfortunately for him, it’s almost all wrong.

I find it hard to fathom why a newspaper would allow such asinine, biased views to be published. The article serves no purpose other than to inflame those already inflamed by Dawkins’ views. It’s sad. It suggests that Jackson didn’t even read the book.

Wikipedia lists intelligent reviews of the book, whether you agree with their opinions or not.

I Ain’t Anti-Christian. Honest.

I believe that Christ was a man like ourselves; to look upon him as God would seem to me the greatest of sacrileges.

– Leo Tolstoy

Rejection of Pascal’s Wager: A Skeptic’s Guide to Christianity:

…presents the “fruits” of my intellectual journey from being a believing Christian into a convinced atheist. The journey was tumultous, sometimes exasperating, but always interesting. The journey has taken me twelve years, but it has been worth it. The freedom to think for yourself, to live life to the fullest, to be a happy and moral human being have been the rewards of this journey.

An interesting read.
