Four key principles of New Atheism

  1. Naturalism- the view that all of reality is reducible to matter and nothing else-is sufficient to explain everything we observe in the universe.
  2. Absence of evidence for God is, indeed, evidence of absence when the evidence should be there and is not.
  3. The Bible fails as a basis for morality and is unable to account for the problem of unnecessary suffering throughout the world.
  4. The "way of nature" of nontheist beliefs of Buddha, Tao, and Confucius is far superior to the traditional supernatural monotheisms, which history shows can lead evil.
