Rejecting the New Atheists

Gary Wolf wrote about the New Atheists in the latest issue of Wired. He concludes:

Myself, I've decided to refuse the call. The irony of the New Atheism -- this prophetic attack on prophecy, this extremism in opposition to extremism -- is too much for me.

I have another prominent objection (among many): Atheism is, finally, rooted in Modernism. Knowledge = justified true belief.

Someone needs to tell the New Atheists that Modernism is dead.
