The not so new New Atheism

Opinion reads: So modern atheism, while not necessarily new in the ideas it presents, is new in that it comes out of a position of cultural authority that it formerly lacked. But believers are not yet willing to concede the battle. In fact, just the opposite seems to be true. Many are responding to the new atheism by claiming that science is unable to answer two of the most important questions humans face: What does life mean and how can we be good? In his recent book, The Language of God, former head of the Human Genome Project and professed Christian Francis Collins wrote, “The comparison of chimp and human sequences, interesting as it is, does not tell us what it means to be human. In my view, DNA sequence alone … will never explain certain special human attributes, such as the knowledge of the Moral Law and the universal search for God.” And these, believers claim, are the most important questions of all.
