Non-Theists can have very different opinions about theism. I just read the Terry Eagleton’s Guardian review of Alain De Button’s book: Religion for Atheists (which I have not read). Eagleton’s review is well-written, insightful and interesting. Yet sometimes I feel that Atheists like Eagleton attack theism and envision themselves accomplishing much more than they actually have accomplished. I just criticized Theists for doing the same in my post: “Arguing for a Tiny God“. Below is a diagram to capture my feeling on this issue showing how some Atheists do the same thing. They argue against the “big” (quality-inflated) gods and feel these criticism hold for much more basic things which don’t resemble the inflated gods at all. I will have to study a bit more to give a better analysis, but for now what do you think of this model?
