My Objection

I’d love to one day write a book of lenten reflections that consist of a dialogue with Friedrich Nietzsche. One of my old theology lecturers, Fr. Michael Conway managed to open my eyes to the devotional possibilities of reading this harshest of critics of Christianity. A future lecturer of mine, Prof. Stephen Williams wrote a book called The Shadow of the Antichrist that detailed the ways in which Nietzsche, in his damning attack on the church, actually did a great service to Christians. He relentlessly pursued the weakness that had crept into Christianity and hearing him was the first step church leaders had to take to set things right.

I have just read this great piece of Nietzsche and it sums up my feelings towards Intelligent Design and Creation Science:

The most perfidious way of harming a cause consists of defending it deliberately with faulty arguments.
