I'm an atheist daughter to two devout Catholics My parents fear for my soul and my mother asked me to read this Since I don’t believe in the divinity of the Bible I couldn’t get through parts 2 and 3 other than the very final Chapter Those sections are like reading fan commentary about the Lord of the Rings Star Wars Star Trek or many of the other topics of passionate leisure discourse If you haven't gotten lost in the mystery you don't get anything out of itI thought it was a very poor piece of work Scott Hahn did not provide any uniue additions to the already poor arguments for faith He did not do any non religious source research for any of his assertions This is important because he claims it's emperically verifiable The cosmos seems to have been designed so that it might be perceived by humankind In actuality most are based on downright myths Much like Mere Christianity he appealed to the emotion of the faithful But unlike CS Lewis he appears to actually believe he has a substantive argument for faith based on empirical evidence Most were laughable attempts based on arguments previously made by men smarter than he which weren't successful eitherFor example is his argument that atheism is a new concept p31 Actually Buddhism is an atheist belief system The majority of Buddhists do not believe in a diety There are some small sects that believe that Buddha was a diety but most do not Buddhism dates back to between 6th and 4th century BCEThis book confirmed to me that religion is the opium of the people It doesn’t take much for a religious book to inspire the faithful Anything that makes us think we are better in the eyes of our gods No need to think critically when the writer is clearly inspired by our god If it makes us feel righteous it must be divinely inspiredAs a side note I get very angry about the faithfulls’ attempts to alter the definition of law They mention the law of gravity and believe then can then take ‘law’ in a scientific context and apply it to morality as a law that god gave themA law in science started out as a hypothesis published to the world after significant experimentation and work It then progresses to a theory and later to a law as thousands of scientists perform experiments designed to DISPROVE the hypothesistheory After centuries of experiments testing Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation we are unable to disprove it within it's boundaries of applicability This means that we can safely conclude that Newton’s law of universal gravitation is not disobeyable which makes it a LAW Unlike believers’ ‘natural law’ you can’t choose to break these laws They aren’t punishable because they aren’t even breakable Really try to comprehend that And stop trying to hijack and mutilate the terms of science to serve your recruitment needs
