    Story
    (1840)

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    What did you like best about The God Delusion? What did you like least?

    Richard Dawkins attempts to systematically dispel any and all rationalizations for believing in a supreme being. I believe it is a valiant attempt, but the pure act of trying to convince others that there is no god is, to me, part of a religion in and of itself.

    I do not believe in a god for two main reasons: 1) It makes me feel better than believing that there is a god, and 2) The idea allows people to avoid thinking on their own and simply assign anything they do not understand to something no one can explain. But if I tried to convince others they should bend to my way of "thinking" (believing), I feel that is the same as any other commonly accepted religion in existence.


    What was most disappointing about Richard Dawkins’s story?

    The story itself was good, although not compelling.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance itself was very good....however, just illustrated my point further.


    Was The God Delusion worth the listening time?

    Yes - I enjoy hearing arguments for unprovable assumptions.
