What´s So Great About Christianity
"human minds have a built-in disposition toward illusion that reality must be exactly the way we experience it." There's more to music than just notes, so it must also be in the spiritual realm, but atheists are truly "dogmatic and arrogant". Reason is limited by our senses.
There are innumerable reasons why Christianity is the best, logical, and more reasonable choice for humans to make, more than I ever thought of. And Dinesh explains them all so cleverly, so completely, without leaving room for any "yes, but...". The author has clearly done his homework and anticipated all types of questions, insults, attitudes, etc that might be thrown at Christianity. The unbeliever cannot get away easily, the author fights them all, one by one, and demolishes all those arguments, and reduces them to -basically- one attitude: "The point is not that atheists do more evil than others, but rather that atheism provides a hiding place for those who do not want to acknowledge and repent of their sins."
The author is not only clever in anticipating all types of negative arguments that atheist and agnostic scientists have come up with through history, but he even goes on the attack with elegance and shrewdness, like this phrase: "Where is atheism when bad things happen?".
Here's another knock-out punch on atheism. Using atheism's 3 biggest excuses for attacking Christianity, he drives them back home with marvelous effect: Science? Heard what the Nazis did in the name of science? reason? Well, look at what Marx wanted to do with "unreasonable" people; progress? did both Nazis and Communists say that their religious and bourgeois opponents, reactionaries, were retarding the forward march of society, and therefore should be eliminated?
I quite agree with the lesson given in this book. Atheists -scientists or not- do not base their opposition to Christianity on reason at all, they are angered because they KNOW IT IS TRUE, and DON'T LIKE IT. As the author says, why so much fuss if God does not exist for you?
I specially recommend this book to so-called students of public education. This is their chance to learn a lot in just one book.
