Harper's Magazine has an interesting piece on how the "new atheists" are going to live without God. We can hope (and pray) that they fare better in the end than the Logical Positivists, many of whom took their own lives.
The new atheists exhibit a great deal of energy and dedication in their efforts to disclaim God's existence and the Judeo-Christian understanding of God as good. To cut God out of the picture, we must also slash centuries of art, music, literature and philosophy. We must seek meaning in a shallow and profane humanism which slips into nihilism. Nihilism is not very fashionable in this age of social media. Nothing isn't much to talk about and the conversation quickly comes to an end. Mood-altering drugs have been suggested.
