Terry Eagleton at the London Review of Books has a powerful refutation of Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion.

    What’s odd is Eagleton seems as unfamiliar with Dawkins work, as he claims Dawkins is with theology.

    Unfamiliarity with the opposing side is a common phenomenon in these debates: too many avowed atheists seek to learn much about religion, too many religious folks avoid coming into contact with any “rationalist” critiques of religion. This is puzzling, though, since there are actually many who are well trained in both science and theology (e.g. the Jesuits who run the Vatican Observatory in Tucson, AZ). There was an interview with Fr. Coyne, SJ, the former head of the observatory, in America Magazine some months ago…but oddly, very few of these priest-scientists seem to speak out on these debates.
