Atheistic Scientists Gather to Assault Religion
See today's nytimes.com for an example of growing evangelical atheism. Called "A Free-for-All on Science and Religion," we see Richard Dawkins et. al. calling for an assault on religion. Note divisions within the atheist movement over evangelistic tactics; viz., objections to the vitriolic fundamentalism and "simplistic and uninformed" views of Dawkins (and Sam Harris).
I agree that, as I read God Delusion, many of Dawkins' views are precisely that.
