This is a challenging and controversial book, by Chris Hedges, which examines and critiques the dangerous creed of the 'New Atheists' belief system.Chris Hedges exposes the central pillars of the New Atheist belief system, including a binary world view ("us-v-them"), a deep intolerance of others' ways of being, a belief that the West has a right to military domination of the rest of the world and a naive acceptance that all human issues (including the spiritual) can be addressed by science.This book challenges us to reject simplistic utopian visions and face reality, however difficult.
It is 'a call to accept the ineluctable limitations of being human'.
