Philosopher Daniel C. Dennett requests that H. Allen Orr publicly defend his negative criticism of Richard Dawkin's book The God Delusion.
I love Dennett's work; I think he's a terrific philosopher. His books, especially Consciousness Explained, are models of clarity and solid reasoning.
I'm surprised, however, that he's wasting his time even thinking about arguments for the existence of God. These arguments are so incredibly, mind-numbingly, eyeball-bleedingly poor, even at the level of the "academic microdiscipline of philosophical theology," that even a "high school dropout" such as myself can thoroughly rebut them.
My challenge to any theist, anywhere, at (almost) any level, still stands. I will apply my editorial discretion only to low quality presentations; it's no fun to refute the illiterate.
Come on, Dan: Leave the easy work to the amateurs like me.
