THE GOD DELUSION BY RICHARD DAWKINS: Dawkins latest book is as brutal and honest as its title. [77] For example: In Turkey, where the book had sold at least 6,000 copies,[78] a prosecutor launched a probe into whether The God Delusion was "an attack on holy values", following a complaint in November 2007. Question: "Is Richard Dawkins’ caricature of the God of the Old Testament accurate?" [71] It was ranked second on the Amazon.com best-sellers' list in November 2006. THE GOD DELUSION Richard Dawkins.

Honestly, since becoming atheist (after leaving an extremely fundamentalist cult religion) I have so much more appreciation for science, my body, the universe, geology, etc etc etc. Dawkins identifies himself repeatedly as an atheist, while also pointing out that, in a sense, he is also agnostic, though "only to the extent that I am agnostic about fairies at the bottom of the garden". As such he argues that the theory of a universe without a God is preferable to the theory of a universe with a God. Richard Dawkins makes some great point and The God Delusion is definitely a book to read. v0.9 by Daj.

There is a very English brand of common sense that believes mostly in what it can touch, weigh and taste, and The God Delusion springs from, among other places, that particular stable.
