Chris Hedges doesn’t believe in Atheism

Chris Hedges doesn’t believe in atheists. What he means is that the new form of Atheism (e.g. Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens) is another brand of fundamentalism, a new form of radicalism if you will.

The interview is interesting in that Hedges states that he is against radicalism, both religious and secular, but he does something towards the end which I question. He says that humanity is basically (or perhaps inherently evil) and that if we look at the world in binary oppositions, then we’re doomed and we’re just following a utopian dream. However, his belief on human nature seems extreme as well. Check it out and tell me what you think.

I am a Ph. D student at Marquette University. The primary purpose of this blog is to get my ideas out there, and then have other people scrutinize, critique, build upon, and systematize beliefs. This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.
