5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for giving us the wisdom not to believe in God?, 16 Jun. 2007
This review is from: The God Delusion (Paperback)
In a world that seems to revel in shadows and mirrors, Dawkins turns on the torch of evidence based thinking and shines it on all those who would rather be left in ignorance. Dawkins cuts through the idea of blind faith and shows it for what it is: a weapon for the unscrupulous and deluded and a comfort blanket for the intellectually lazy, confused, gullible and weak minded. Creationist thinking is laid bare on the hard rock of science and the world is a better place for it.

And it will make you think! Exactly what would a psychological profile of the lord of the Old Testament look like? Would we be impressed? Would an intelligent designer/ god really build DNA in such a way that simple humans could interfere and tamper with it to achieve our own, often merely cosmetic ends? Universal trust in human motives? Poor creativity? Lack of divine foresight? Or just an immortal off-day?

Overall? An excellent book. In some respects, it doesn't matter whether you believe the central argument or not: It's engaging, thought provoking and full of interesting anecdotes, theories, information and evidence that certainly made me feel all the richer for reading it.

Saint or sinner? Either way ... buy it!
