The Atheist Manifesto

Two cheers for Richard Dawkins. His polemic is an important next step in the political movements started in the 60's and what were termed the politics of liberation. The politics of weaning humankind from ancient texts claiming to explain the Universe is the most important fight of all. Dawkins does however over simplify somewhat. The centrality of argument and reason in that fight can't be disputed. For further criticism of Dawkins see http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/07-07-04.html#feature
