To use science to justify such dogma…

It is perfectly rational to propose that the universe is indeed without purpose—that what we see is all there is. But to assert that this is so, as Dawkins and Atkins do, is not at all ‘rational’. It is merely a piece of dogma. Indeed, atheism—when you boil it down—is little more than dogma: simple denial, a refusal to take seriously the proposition that there could be more to the universe than meets the eye. To use science to justify such dogma, as these professors do, is a gross misuse of their own trade.

John Lennox, quoted by Colin Trudge in http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2007/dec/08/society
