The 'new' atheists are putting out books and articles like there's no tomorrow. They've gained a large slice of public attention, but do their arguments really hold water? Using the analogy put forward by the philosopher Professor Anthony Flew, Michael Poole examines whether the new atheists' assertions amount to the 'Ten-Leaky-Buckets-Tactic' of argumentation - presenting people with a sum of arguments that are each individually defective, as though the cumulative effect should be persuasive. Looking at ten of the new atheists' most frequently used arguments, Poole concludes that the buckets are, indeed leaky.

The new atheists are putting out new books and articles, bus adverts and TV programmes like there's no tomorrow. They've gained a large amount of public attention and media exposure - but do their arguments really hold water? Using the analogy put forward by the esteemed philosopher Anthony Flew, Michael Poole examines the new atheists' use of the 'ten leaky buckets' tactic of argumentation - presenting readers with a sum of arguments that are each individually defective, as though the cumulative effect should be persuasive. This closer look at the facts reveals that the buckets are, indeed, leaky.
