Dr. Ron Miller speaks at the Theosophical Society in America in 2009 on The New Athiests. Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris are two representatives of a new wave of atheism in the post-9/11 world. Troubled by the fanaticism threatening our world, from both some Muslims in the Middle East and some Christians in the United States, they have decided that religion is the root of all evil; and the sooner we get rid of it, the better. Their arguments need to be tested. The speaker examines some of the more popular arguments used by this new breed of atheists to see if they have any merit.
ABOUT THE THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY:
The Theosophical Society is composed of students belonging to any religion or to none. Its members are united by their approval of the Society’s Three Objects, by their wish to remove religious antagonisms and to draw together people of goodwill whatsoever their religious opinions, and by their desire to study religious truths and to share the results of their studies with others. We also want to thank them for providing this video. For more information on the Theosophical Society in America, please click here: Theosophical.org
