Beyond Belief

16 July 2007


At the end of the 19th century the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche announced that God was dead and in the 1960s it was commonly believed that religion would "wilter with modernity". Since then numerous books and thinkers have put forward the atheist argument. But has belief really gone away or have atheists just become more aggressive and more prepared to pour scorn on what they view as irrational, untenable beliefs in a supernatural being?

Join Ernie Rea and his guests as they discuss what it means to be an atheist and whether we are witnessing a new stage in the battle between belief and disbelief.
