Since the Enlightenment, Western intellectuals have predicted the death of religion. Sigmund Freud, 80 years ago, declared that because of modern science the infantile illusions of religion would be outgrown. Bertrand Russell, 50 years ago, said religion was a crutch that thoughtful people could discard. Today, Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), Christopher Hitchens (God is not Great), and Sam Harris (The End of Faith) argue similarly. Yet, religion persists as a source of meaning for many. Using Harris, we will debate and learn from the arguments of modern atheism.
