The New Atheism Series
Christianity has come under strong criticism from men such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. As recently as 13-15 April, 4,000 people attended the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne. PZ Myers rallied the delegates to "demolish the City of God" and "make the bastards tremble".
