The Age of Unreason

A friend of mine sent me a link to a post by a Mike Flynn that addresses another post that was written by an atheist, Jim Walker. Walker contends that Christianity is anti-scientific, and primarily uses examples from the "Dark Ages," which Flynn does a good job at countering. Walker's post is poorly written and has some obvious historical mistakes, but Flynn's post is hastily written, and although he correctly points out many of Walker's flaws, I would like to see a better treatment of the subject. Flynn has another post where he lists several books about the Middle Ages, so that might be a place to start.
