... I have suggested here a number of times that Richard Dawkins and his assorted acolytes ought to take a look at Rudolf Otto's The Idea of the Holy. That book is mentioned in passing in this piece by Roger Scruton: The sacred and the human. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
The point is that some sense of the presence of the transcendent comes with the territory of being human. It is Dawkins and friends who are out of the evolutionary loop.
