Join Don Watkins of Earthly Idealism and reexamine the New Atheism. What were the New Atheists trying to achieve–and did they succeed or fail?

During the early 2000s, the New Atheists dominated the intellectual discussion and seemed to put religion on the defense. Today, though more people than ever self-identify as atheists, leading intellectuals seem to be turning more and more to religion.

This salon will explore the goals, impact, and evolution of the New Atheist phenomenon. Key questions include:

  • What were the goals of the New Atheists–and did they achieve them?
  • Why have leaders of the moment like Ayaan Hirsi Ali rejected atheism?
  • What would a revived secular movement look like?
