Ditchins and Co.
I'm reading Reason, Faith and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate, not just because it's Sunday, but because it dismantles some of the Shiboleths in the scientific community and what they have to say about God. Terry Eagleton takes great delight in reducing Christpher Hitchins' and Stephen Dawkins' arguments to a pile of insubstantial neurons...His attack on Amis and Rushdie is hilarious and poor old Marty must want to curl up in his etymylogical blanket and suck his thumb forever. Great stuff to ponder.
