Shalom Freedman

The New Atheism is clearly a reaction to religious fundamentalism in all forms, most notably I guess, violent Islamic radical fundamentalism. But the new Atheism also knows that while the Theists cannot prove the existence of God, Personal or Impersonal- the Atheists also cannot disprove the existence of God. For those of us who strongly feel the need for God, there is of course no need for an 'intellectual and impossible proof'. In fact there is a good reason why God should not have made our connection one based on a clear, obvious to all, readily testable proof.
I would also say that what Hornik hints at here is very true. i.e. there are realms of experience, even in mystery , even in Awe, which simply are outside the ken of the flatminded atheist.
I close with a word of a great Hasidic master the Rebbe of Kotzk who when asked where God is, said simply "Wherever we let God in".
