  1. I read a Hart book wanting to be convinced. He made a few good arguments, and some bad ones. He also strikes me as quite puffed up. I know I’m not supposed to be the judge but it’s the vibe I get. I’m not the only one, I laughed out loud at this review of the same book I read: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/921153238?book_show_action=true&from_review_page=1

      I’ve found that review to be terribly bad. There are things DBH says that are questionable, but I don’t think any of those the reviewer guffaws at are among them.

      Yes, atheism is largely based on a misunderstanding of who God is.
      Yes, reading the Bible as a physics manual is ridiculous.
      Yes, Intelligent Design creationism basically accepts the mechanistic view of the world and tries to find room for a tinkerer “god” in it.
      Yes, Dawkins is a ridiculous character.
