This book changed the way I viewed religion entirely and opened my eyes to the dangers of exposing our inexperienced and uneducated children to the world of religion. There is a lot of great information here, so much so that I am going to keep this one at the top of my list for others to read!
I love how he presents the different points and facts. He does seem a little raw when approaching the subject of religion and God, but that can be said about both sides of this eternal debate. Although some of the points he brings up I felt were a little bit trivial, all in all he creates a great test (based on scientific facts and the observation of the world around us) to pit your beliefs against. What ever your beliefs, he raises some very good questions.
The absolute crispness of Richard Dawkins' criticism of religion, and the way he showed me how everything I thought, didn't match either evidence, or even the bible.
Nothing in particular, but the whole notion of God has disappeared for me, and that is an overall result of this excellent piece of work.
I didn't like that there were two different voice actors. Both Richard and Lalla were excellent, but it was strange to listen to the shift between the voice actors. I would understand it in a multiple charracter fictional story, but in this, it seems strange and distracting. This, however is my only complaint, I'd recommend this to everyone.
Finally a rational look the world around us and our beliefs.
It is amazing what people will believe just because others tell it to them. Religion is a prison for your mind, and Richard helps you break free.
You get to a certain point in life when you're tired of all the arguing... I thought there might be some spiritual insight in the book, but it was just more arguing... No thanks!
I was worried that as someone who is already an atheist there wouldn't be any new material for me. I was SO wrong. Richard Dawkins has a beautifully curious mind that thinks further on certain subjects than I have. There were several moments where he explained something that I have wondered about for years, or gave me something new to contemplate.
it's full of easy to understand facts. blows all the bible myths straight to hell, or imaginary hell!
all of it.
its all lies, the bible that is.
ya, religion is a myth!
