    " Vintage Hedges confronting the silliness of the New Atheism. "

    " If there's one non-fiction writer in the US we should be reading, it's Hedges. Even since "War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning," Hedges has been turning out important books about the world today. In this one he squashes the arguments of Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and others who say there is no God. When you're finished with this book you will want to also read, "What Every Person Should Know About War," "Losing Moses on the Freeway," "American Fascists," and "The Ten Commandments in America." "

    " Hodges makes some good points, but is way off base on so many others. His reduction of atheists Harris, Hitchens, and Dawkins often seems as reductionist as the atheists are of Christianity and Islam. I long for a book that treats these subjects with more respect and less dogmatism. I am grateful for hedges' remarks on Joseph Conrad's realism on the savage streak in human nature, something we ignore to our peril. "

    " Hedges was able to pick out every unfavorable aspect of both religion and science. Addresses important issues and very thought provoking but I ended the book feeling a bit depressed. "

    " He starts many of his arguments with undefended sweeping generalizations which I resent, but the most interesting topics, he fully explains his starting premises. "

    " Excellent points but I felt that it was rushed, dashed off. The last two chapters are the strongest. "

    " While I learned somethings, I think the "New Athiests" aren't as huge of a threat as the American religious right, though he makes a point of the disturbing things that come out of the mouth's of some of these people. "

    " This book was welcome reading after I had been reading and exploring atheism. I was thoroughly depressed by atheism and this was a great pick-me-up. It also turned me on to Chris Hedges columns at Truthdig.com "

    " Previous published as Why I don't believe in Athiests, this book is intoxicating. Chris Hedges has got to have one of the sexiest brains on the planet. He is the standard for critical thinking. I could hardly put it down. I can't wait to read another by him. "

    " This book is much less a polemic on atheism (or even new atheism), and much more about the problems inherent in utopianism and moral progressivism. It is an extremely thought provoking read, and brings up a multitude of questions about belief, progressivism, and teleology. "

    " i have only read the prologue and a quarter of the first chapter. this book has already put me in a trance. i'm actually taking notes as i read it. taking notes. i'm thinking about writing an essay when i finish it. i already HIGHLY recommend this book. "

    " Chris Hedges is always interesting and likes to stir things up. His book," War is the Force that Gives Us Meaning" is also excellent. All his books make you think. "

    " I will plow through it but have found his "over-reaching" much like the title...Cutesy confusion of concepts to make complete (and faulty) analogies out of superficial comparisons. Yes, some atheists are strongly opinionated..as are fundamentalists Christians...so ? "
