Left Hemispheres: On Frans de Waal and "Militant Atheism"

Left Hemispheres: On Frans de Waal and "Militant Atheism" | Ethical Action | Scoop.it

The following essay is in response to an article entitled “Has militant atheism become a religion?” on Salon.com. The article is actually an excerpt from Frans de Waal’s upcoming book “The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates;” which—truth be told—I was looking forward to reading until I realized this was an excerpt from it. I should point out that de Waal may or may not have anything to do with the title of the excerpt. That could have been Salon’s doing, but it really doesn’t matter due to the content.

‘Militant Atheism’ Isn’t a Religion; It’s an Oxymoron

‘Militant Atheism’ Isn’t a Religion; It’s an Oxymoron | Ethical Action | Scoop.it

Primatologist Frans de Waal has written a new book called The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates (released today). While the focus of the book is on the evolution of morality, an excerpt from the book on Salon suggests there’s an undercurrent of anger at the New Atheists.
