This review is from: Darwin's Angel: An angelic riposte to The God Delusion (Paperback)
Honestly, this is creepier than Stephen King. It's an attack on Dawkin's book while trying to disguise itself as a friend - the result is a kind of illness of the intellect. Because this is so transparent it's a little bit funny, and certainly a textbook on malicious spin doctoring - but when the writer's motive is more obvious to the reader than the author you know you're dealing with a bit of a nutter. A very stupid book.

This is acutally an intelligent reposte to Dawkins and this reviewer is not being fair at all. His is certainly not a reasonable assessment of Darwin's Angel. The idea that Cornwell betrays an 'illness of the intellect' is pernicious and lowers the tone of what could be an intelligent discussion.

It is telling that Dawkins and his followers always resort to abuse when dealing with religion and its adherents. By contrast intelligent proponents of faith are much more civil and considered.

Mr. Bde Wall says:
Why is it 'creepy' to be respectful to someone whilst carrying out a critique of their views? Just because Dawkins is caricaturing and rude in his challenges to theists doesnt mean the religious should reply in the same tone. Cornwell doesn't, and that is to his credit.
