An Appetite For Wonder: The Making of a Scientist
An Appetite For Wonder: The Making of a Scientist
by Richard Dawkins
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good auto-biography., 28 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Richard Dawkins has had a very interesting life,covering the late period of Empire until the present.The book shows that that he is not the arrogant and aggressive atheist some paint him out to be.He is humane and has a lot of empathy but,quite rightly,does not water down scientific facts to appease his attackers, any more than a biologist would play down the germ theory of disease when debating with those religious people who claim prayer "cures"all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good explanation of the dichotomy between Science and Religion, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are obviously sincere,in the sense of non-hypocritical,religious believers.However,I would contend that,ultimately,human beings must follow the evidence and accept as valid and authentic the substance of scientific proofs and explanations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hypocrisy and cover-up, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent acting based on real life events covering a very taboo subject.Scandalous how the Church in cahoots with the regional authorities in that part of Canada could not only allow the abuse of boys in their care but then enter into a criminal cover up of what went on.

4.0 out of 5 stars It all makes sense., 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good read. Systematically laid out and a logical presentation of the intuitive case for morality and compassion grounded on reality and not superstition.
