Reason Rally, Really?

Richard Dawkins is hosting a “Reason Rally” on the National Mall on March 24. It’s supposed to be “the largest gathering of the secular movement in world history.” As author of the best-seller The God Delusion, and the most well-known atheist in the world, Dawkins is the natural choice to headline it.

Or is he? The God Delusion was criticized by both Christians and non-Christians for its clear and identifiable errors in evidence and reasoning. Even so, just a couple of weeks ago Dawkins said “many supporters of religion have preferred to ignore [the book’s] arguments and just repeatedly claim that it’s full of rage and hatred, fundamentalism and intolerance instead.”

Not very reasonable is he?

One of Dawkins’ critics, Christian philosopher William Lane Craig, challenged him to a debate at Dawkins’ own Oxford University last fall. Craig is known for his strict focus on evidence, reason, and logic, but Dawkins refused. I’m not sure this “Reason Rally” is going to be all that reasonable.
