The atheist movement is a puzzle. There is plenty in biblical criticism to indicate the transparent confusions of legacy religion, but there is nothing in science that can guarantee an atheist axiom. Once you cut through infantile forms of theistic make-believe you come to a quagmire that can’t be bridged: go/no-god spiral in terminal nullity at both ends.
But the worst part of the confusion is the way the new atheists have distorted science to found their confusion, e.g. the evolutionary myth of darwinism. That will prove the downfall of the new atheism just as surely as those of religion undermined its hold.
