This is my debate this morning on BBC Radio Ulster with Rabbi Jonathan Romain, about the claim by Britain’s Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks that atheism has failed, on the Sunday Sequence show hosted by William Crawley. The article in the Spectator by the Chief Rabbi is here.
Has atheism failed? My debate on BBC Radio Ulster with Rabbi Jonathan Romain
One thought on “Has atheism failed? My debate on BBC Radio Ulster with Rabbi Jonathan Romain”
Lots of people make the mistake of thinking that ‘atheism’ is a complete system of thought, with positive values, etc. Actually atheists get no positive values from atheism – their values will all come from positive philosophies that can be constructed on the basis of an godless, empty worldview. And as Crawley said, atheists will usually just donate to existing charities.
