nick baines sticks the boot in

I don't mourn the passing of deference [to Christian culture], but I do think that what has taken its place isn't very impressive. Richard Dawkins isn't alone in excelling in one field - such as biology - while being awful in another - such as 'thinking'. Some commentators have a shockingly misplaced confidence in demolishing religious straw men that even I don't believe in.
