By Michael Bunner
Most persons have been led to believe there is a “war” between science and religion. Over the past generation, “New Atheist” icons such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens have fueled this erroneous belief with provocative best-selling books which herald the triumph of science over God. To date, the scientific and philosophical responses made by persons of faith to these New Atheist affronts have made only a little noise, like warning shots red across the bow of a ship. No more.
In God, Science, and Reason, Michael Bunner, a scientist who also believes in God, takes direct aim at the belief systems of the New Atheists and the world view they espouse. He not only exposes the flaws in their own logic and rationale, but also presents well-reasoned and compelling scientific and philosophical arguments that reveal and decimate their belief systems. In the process, he demonstrates that the war between science and religion is nothing more than an illusion concocted and sustained by those who have rejected God. He also makes a persuasive case that we can understand reality only when we view the world through the lenses of both science and religion.
