A celebration of Truth, Evidence and Our Universe,
This review is from: A Devil's Chaplain: Selected Writings (Paperback)One of the most engaging books I have ever read. More gripping than any thriller, you will not sleep untill you have read every single page. Covering many subjects from ethics to religion, the champion of atheism, Richard Dawkins, elegantly presents his arguments and views, backing them up with clear observable evidence that leaves you thinking - why didn't I realise that. Many theologans and theists visciously attack his work, but after reading some of their 'high-minded' and 'ritcheous' books, it is clear who is right.
Dawkins does not attack the act of believing, merely renders it illogical. He does not blame religious people, but just accepts that different people have different opinions, and wishes that extreemist would realise this too.
I have spent hours mulling over what is in this book with my peers and I urge people to read this book with an open mind. Some say you can't change a mind entrenched, but such a deeply thought provoking book is well worth a read. This publication provokes debate, and that is what makes it great.
