Michael Parenti, E. Michael Jones debate God & religion!

The Three Stooges of neo-atheism: Dawkins, Hitchens, and Harris

First half-hour: Michael Parenti, one of America’s great dissident intellectuals, is not so crazy about God – and he’s even less crazy about His followers! Parenti’s book God and His Demons is a better anti-religious diatribe than those of Hitchens, Harris, and Dawkins – the Three Stooges of neo-atheism – which isn’t saying all that much.

But God and His Demons IS absurdly one-sided…the product of a mind so steeped in its anti-religious viewpoint that it seems incapable of critical self-examination, or considering alternative points of view on this topic…much less bothering to get to know the field of Religious Studies. It’s a wittily-delivered laundry-list of items cherry-picked and/or ripped out of context for the purpose of making religion and religious people look bad. (I could easily do the same thing in reverse by writing a book entitled The Secularist Demons – and there would be even more material!) Though the book is lively and amusing, like all his work, I had hoped for more from Parenti, whom I generally admire and respect.

Second half hour: If we adjust for educational level, it seems that atheists are generally even more boneheaded, dogmatic, and obscurantist than the religious fundamentalists they love to hate. Why IS that? Let’s ask America’s leading engagé traditional Catholic intellectual, E. Michael Jones!

E. Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars magazine, is one of America’s most interesting dissident voices. He is the author of numerous books on a wide variety of topics.
