If Richard Dawkins, Dan Dennett and Christopher Hitchens are not entirely to your taste, there's always the late Shaikh Ahmed Deedat, whose version of 'comparative religion' was an altogether different kind of Bible bashing. (I first came across him on the Peace TV. Well, they weren't going to call it Jihad TV, were they?)
On a separate note, I was listening to a very interesting interview with entomologist and sociobiologist E.O.Wilson this weekend. Somewhat surprisingly perhaps, he has deliberately sought to ally himself with religious believers in his campaign to promote biodiversity, because he believes they are much less likely to harbour venal motives than their secular counterparts. Wilson's new environmentalist tract is rather pointedly called Creation.
A bit more Deedat here.
