I have seen interviews and debates with Chris Hedges and thought he would have some interesting things to say on the religion/atheism question. Aside from the silly title of this book all he seems to do is criticise the atheists he apparently doesn't believe in. I was expecting a unique and fascination take on the subject as a whole. So I found this a very disappointing listen.
Certainly Mr. Hedges does believe in atheists, in fact concludes that the newest generation of atheists (Hitchens, Harris, Dawkins etc) are ideologues closer in kind to the religious extremists they desire to literally annihilate.
As an experienced war correspondent who has confessed his own addiction to the “rush and excitement of battle,” he has something important to say about extremism, no matter from which direction it is coming.
He sees the future is bleak and no solution unless people regain the power that the governments now posses.
Hedges explains that these “militant atheists,” posing as religious experts, do not simply disagree with religious truth claims — they see them as evils. Dawkins says they must be removed from our culture, Hitchens blamed it on the Muslims and Harris takes it to the next level in a recent interview in which he states If he had a magic wand with which to eradicate rape or religion he'd choose religion.
Fact moving audio, leaves you with many things to consider. Excellent information and not the typical debate retaliatory commentary in any way.

I don't fully agree with everything Chris Hedges says in this book but it made me question some of my beliefs.
