Late last week a friend forwarded this two-part documentary called “The Trouble with Atheism.” I felt it would be worth passing on to you, but with some cautionary comments.
Rod Liddle does not approach this as a Christian but as a post-modernist. Atheists will find his interviews with scientists and atheists rather exposing, and believers may gain insight, but we must keep in mind that the main point Liddle is making is that Atheism is really just another form of religion in the sense that it produces the same results. Liddle goes so far as to refer to “fundamentalist Atheists.” Liddle concludes the series by positing that the problem is absolutism in general (the idea that there is truth) and fundamentalism in specific (the idea that we can know what it is).
In this series Liddle almost casually decimates modernism (the idea that science will answer all our questions) all the while setting the stage for post-modernism (the idea that there is no definite answer). It’s worth watching, but we must not think that the world is turning to the truth. The world is turning to a relativism that is far more deadly than modernism.
