The Dawkin Delusion,
This review is from: The God Delusion (Hardcover)
I had been looking forward to reading this book for some time, thinking that it would be a very deep and interesting look into the mystery of existence without the superstition, wishful-thinking, god-fearing, narrow-minded view of a anthromorphological God. Sadly, it was Dawkin just inventing another schism; making atheism another religion. Beneath its very grand title there is the feel of an undergraduate essay trying to score clever points in a childish way by shouting the "the Emperor has no clothes" to those who still believe in the bread & wine, the holy conjuring trick miracles, the myths and legends, and all the other artefacts that free thinking intellectuals have probably never accepted (except perhaps as metaphors).
Dear Professor, you've missed the point, you've thrown the baby out with the bath water. Under the title The God Delusion I and many others could have written a book that would have provoked thought and questioned the nature of reality and experience, shown how considered atheism is truly profound, but I fear that its content would not have the same quasi academic yet tabloid appeal to be published much less promoted.
