I read an interesting, short article from Christianity Today by Dinesh D’Souza tonight, “Staring into the Abyss.” In it, D’Souza explains the views of the atheist Peter Singer, whom he recently debated. Singer has some interesting and quite controversial views as an atheist, particularly towards the value (or lack thereof) of human life. We find in Singer someone whose atheistic views are logically consistent in that without God, you lose the motivation to have passion for others in situations where one’s own selfish interests are not the prime focus. “In Singer, we may be witnessing someone both horrifying and yet somehow refreshing: an intellectually honest atheist.”
An interesting read that I thought I would pass on.
