For the latest "critique" of the rationalist viewpoint, step forward TV historian Tristram Hunt, who's written a piece for today's Guardian attacking the "new atheist orthodoxy" with all the usual accusations of ignorance, arrogance, solipsism and sophistry. Tristram's particularly upset with the pride atheists take in the Enlightenment, which in his view had "its foundation in elements of the Protestant tradition" and was "intimately connected with non-conformist Protestantism".
Like so many others, Hunt chooses to depict atheism/humanism/rationalism as driven mostly by its "central pillars" - Dawkins, Dennett and Hitchens - before basing his entire argument on Hitchens' view of the Enlightenment in his polemical bestseller God Is Not Great. So in Tristram's eyes Hitchens' uncompromising view that religion had little part to play in the Enlightenment becomes the view of all us atheists out there.
Meanwhile, Tristram's busy expounding his view that the Enlightenment was all thanks to Protestantism, showing particular fondness for the period's "flourishing Desim". Which of course isn't actually Protestantism at all.
