Is God Irrelevant - Atheism and Belief

From Bookforum's Omnivore blog comes this interesting assortment of links on all things atheism and faith. One of the highlights is a Julian Baggini review (in The Guardian) of Atheists: The Origin of the Species by Nick Spencer.

Another interesting link is from Steven Douglas Smith (University of San Diego School of Law), Is God Irrelevant?  Here's the abstract:
This essay, written for a symposium on Ronald Dworkin’s recent posthumous book Religion Without God, argues that Dworkin misunderstands the way theists typically think God relates to “morality.” The essay sketches a subjectivist (or “super-subjectivist”) account of morality that arguably better fits the understanding of believers in the biblical tradition than does Dworkin’s more objectivist account.
There are other good links as well.
