The Irrational Atheist 3

I just finished The Irrational Atheist by Vox Day, and I will give it 4 stars when I review it on Amazon.com. I think Vox Day did a fairly good job using logic against the New Atheists like Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Richard Dawkins. If he did not conclusively make the case for the existence of God, at least he showed that reason does not lead inexorably to atheism. He demolishes the argument that religion is the cause of most wars, and shows that the modern tradition of governments murdering millions of their own citizens is always done by atheist, or at any rate secularized rulers.

Towards the end Vox Day tackles the problem of evil by using his own experience as a game designer to speculate that God does not always have full control over every event, if only by limiting His omnipotence in order to allow human freedom. I recommend this book as an interesting read.
