4.0 out of 5 stars the old debate, 30 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The God Delusion (Paperback)
as a writer, dawkins is one of the best that i have read. he gets his points across clearly. his view of the world is based on scientific discoveries. however, its a view shared by probably a small proportion of the world. of course, if you're not one of those people you will hate this book. dawkins rarely tries to see things from their point of view. perhaps he could have tried a bit harder on this. but there are many things to learn here and the points he makes are strong. creationist arguments are nearly all weak so dawkins was never going to have much trouble debunking them. but he does it very clearly and it is fun to read. their strongest argument is the arguement from design (the watchmaker) but evolution (and dawkins explanation) clearly shows that you dont need a designer at all. it also explains how an observer can be fooled by the world around them. the nugget in this book is the last chapter and "the biggest burka of them all". even theists can and should learn from this chapter. we are only aware of a tiny spectrum of the world. to really understand evolution which is probably the most important theory man has ever come up with, (and the one that most influences athiests like dawkins thinking), you need to read blind watchmaker or some of dawkins other books. this one doesnt just bury the theory in the back of the net like his other books do. but dawkins great writing style is evident here and as always is a joy to read.
