Re-Run: Jeff Cook and Desire and God

Interesting, and I thought the atheists were the smart ones: Re-Run: Jeff Cook and Desire and God:
The debate about God in our culture is not about what’s rational. 
Bill Maher, Christopher Hitchens, Penn Jillette, Richard Dawkins, etc, specialize—not in philosophical thought—but in ridicule. And that means the new atheists excel on the only evangelistically-effective playing field that matters—that of human emotion and desire. Most Christian apologists conversely seem content to surrender that ground in their preference for mere rationality. This is a tragic mistake and it’s the primary reason Christian belief is diminishing, marginalized and an easy target for nighttime comedians.
