"A very important book, especially in these times... a magnificent book, lucid and wise, truly magisterial " (Ian McEwan)
"Written with all the clarity and elegance of which Dawkins is a master. It should have a place in every school library - especially in the library of every "faith" school" (Philip Pullman)
"A resounding trumpet blast for truth... It feels like coming up for air" (Matt Ridley)
"A spirited and exhilarating read... Dawkins comes roaring forth in the full vigour of his powerful arguments, laying into fallacies and false doctrines with the energy of the polemicist at his most fiery" (Joan Bakewell Guardian)
"This is my favourite book of all time... a heroic and life-changing work" (Derren Brown)

I agree with the assertion, and I admire the science. But I do not consider it possible for science ever to realise what I call the nucleus of life. To me, science is like the innocent kitten fighting its mirror image. Genuine and clever but that blocks its progress by insisting on empirical evidence where there is none to have from a mirror image.
Western Christian Religion though is a treacherous mind virus that betrayed the original knowledge in exchange for the power of a pervasive power hierarchy and financial gain. I suggest a different perspective though that maybe you have not experienced before.
Evolution over Creationism, I suggest they are mutually the same from a physical perspective; the so-called Big bang started somewhere as did the so-called God intelligent designer. Just because we do not know the answers directly in our manifested world, does not automatically imply support for the core argument of the book. Namely, God does not exist.
I do not like to use the word 'God' because of the status Assumed in today's world has become so twisted and mocked it is meaningless. As stated in the book, there had been many Gods, and the author took the last one out of the equation. Richard Dawkins is like many humans in today's world they do not know who they are! There is a subtle issue that slips past his intellect and slips past most; he is not alone. Dawkins advocates that humans are just meaningless chances that come from a zillion chances of evolution. If anybody were to ask Richard Dawkins to identify himself, he would point to a passport or a driving licence or some other equivalent document. The subtle slip that seems lost is that these documents are the property of another legal entity linked to the Catholic Church. Essentially Dawkins is stating that he is the property of the Catholic Church! So, after all, his hard work he still claims to be the property of the Catholic church. The irony!
I guess he wanted to cash in his second rise in fame (after the The Selfish Gene) through his debates about religion. Don't see any harm on that to be honest.
