He proceeds to demolish their premises, fallacy by fallacy. His taking apart of Sam Harris mostly on the basis that Harris quite demonstrably gets his facts wrong, is cringe making it is so complete. That an academic could be quite so shoddy in his arguments comes as a surprise. The often quoted idea that religions are the main cause of conflict and war, is demonstrated beyond doubt, to be entirely wrong. The writing is clear and crisp and - if you are one of those who finds the in-your-face atheism of the evangelical kind both unphilosophical and crass in its portrayal of religious mysticism, this book is for you.
I cannot recommend this book enough. Having personally taken the bait before from Dawkins, Harris (somewhat), and Hitchens, Vox Day does not disappoint in roundly destroying their arguments. There is no shortage of evidence to point out their logical fallacies, shocking ignorance, misdirection, and sometimes outright lies of historical events. It is clear Vox Day is an intelligent man and he has a deep foundation and understanding of the Christian faith. He is not afraid to show it. There is also something very appealing about someone who is unafraid to call out others and who is willing to stand up and defend their convictions so openly. If you enjoy Nassim Nicholas Taleb's style of doing this you will not be disappointed in Vox Day's.
Pick it up. Whether you are an atheist or religious it is worth it to challenge your worldview.
