Video: Atheistic Materialism: Does Richard Dawkins Exist?

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 04/27/15

Dr. Dennis Bonnette shows why the atheistic worldview is inherently flawed

In this video clip, Thomist philosopher Dr. Dennis Bonnette begins his presentation on atheistic materialism. A philosophy "that destroys belief in God, the Creator—replacing Him with blind evolutionary forces," this problematic worldview—flaunted by biologist Richard Dawkins—is fatally flawed, according to Bonnette, who holds a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Notre Dame and has taught philosophy at the university level for over 40 years. Bonnette is also the author of Origin of the Human Species: Third Edition (2014). The entire lecture was published by the Aquinas School of Philosophy and can be viewed .
