A Deeper Look at Atheism

In this month's article, I take a closer look at some of the ramifications of holding to an atheist worldview.

[A professor] of ethics at Princeton, has argued that a developed dog has more differentiated consciousness than a retarded baby. According to this line of reasoning, the dog has more right to life than the baby ... !

That's quite a chilling thought, isn't it - and many of today's atheists would not push their theories to that extent. But it has happened in the (only too recent) past and we need to be aware of the directions in which these ideas will inevitably lead.

[These] principles are irrefutably the ultimate result of consistent relativistic and naturalistic logic. One can see that such a world would be dark, cold, merciless and tragic.

You can read my article and join in the conversation here.
