On his blog, âOne Cosmos,â Robert Godwin has posted an extended piece about atheism entitled âAtheism and Other Religions.â The piece is interesting and worth a look. However, although far more learned and coherent than most theistic blathering, it still fails to address the basic premises of atheistic thought. Like most theists, he continually resorts to calling atheism incoherent and willfully blind to the evidence. Although I agree with Godwin that âpositiveâ atheism â affirming that one believes in no god â is problematic, (an issue I addressed in my latest essay âIn the Beginning was the Word: Separating the Atheists from the Agnostics - Rescuing the Agnostics from the Theistsâ) I do not find his condemnation of my atheism â that is, no belief in god â compelling.
