Dinesh D’Souza writes an interesting article on the ethical consistency of Peter Singer, who follows Nietzsche to places where most atheists–unwilling to be honest about the true implications of their belief system–fear to tread:

Staring into the Abyss

I find Peter Singer an animal–which, of course, is precisely what Mr. Singer would say of himself! One can, at the same time, appreciate the refreshing honesty of Mr. Singer, and recoil in horror at the horrible implications of truly living life as though there were no God in Heaven, for too many atheists deny God’s existence at the front door, but smuggle God-based morality in through the back door. Singer will have none of it, and for that, at least, we can applaud him.

But if I had him over to dinner, I’d surely count the silverware.
