Where do atheists come from? How did such folks as Richard Dawkins,
Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens become such ardent atheists?
If we are to believe them, their flight from faith resulted from a dispassionate
review of the evidence. Not enough rational grounds for belief in God, they tell
us. But is this the whole story? Could it be that their opposition to religious
faith has more to do with passion than reason? What if, in the end, evidence has
little to do with how atheists arrive at their anti-faith?
That is precisely the claim in this book. Atheism is not a consequence of intellectual doubts. These are mere symptoms of the root cause, moral rebellion. For the atheist, the missing ingredient is not evidence but obedience.
The Making of an Atheist explores the moral and psychological dynamics involved in the abandonment of faith.
