I recently finished David Berlinski’s The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions. This is not your typical evangelical Christian response to the new atheism. David Berlinski is a secular Jew who writes as a scientist. His purpose is not to prove evangelical Christianity or even Judaism as the correct religion. His purpose is to look at the claims that science supports atheism and has completely dismantled belief in God. The insider perspective is very enlightening. Berlinski puts out for examination the presuppositions of science, demonstrating that science neither proves nor disproves God. Science has become just another tool of atheists and in some ways a certain interpretation of science has become the foundation for the atheistic belief system. Berlinski interacts with major atheist authors such as Sam harris, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins. He deals with such issues as the origin of the universe (including a look at if there was a beginning) and evolution. Berlinski makes it clear that certain atheistic scientists have begun with the assumption that there is no God and have attempted to force science to comply. For example, if the universe had a beginning, the door is open for there to be a Creator. Since there is no God, then the universe must not have had a beginning. Berlinski has an incredible wit and I often found myself laughing out loud and reading passages to my wife. If you are interested in the relationship between faith and science or are concerned about the new atheism, I strongly encourage The Devil’s Delusion.
