This book is full of the sanest and most compelling reasons to believe in a god. Dawkins explains the most common and commonly accepted reasons given by theists, then calmly and efficiently dissects them, showing that they are without substance.
There is also a good measure of science, explaining some of the most recent findings regarding evolution, and the results of surveys showing the starkly negative correlation between belief in a "personal god" and intelligence.
This book is entertaining, valuable, and extremely useful for rebutting some of the "unanswerable" arguments trotted out by religious apologists. Enjoy!
The story was pretty good and technical.
Darryl, because she's an interesting character.
Constantly mispronouncing words, pronouncing the same word differently, and repeatedly mispronouncing "nuclear" (sounding like new-kyu-lur). He says the word "program" like "pro-grum" and other distracting annoyances.
This person should not have a job in narration.
This book explains clearly, without dancing around and sucking up to "politically correct" ideals, why religion causes much more harm than good. And since religion is completely based upon fiction, it would be a very nice time to get rid of it.
It is time for all human-loving atheists to use our voice, instead of being the silent minority which is quite possibly a majority -- if only we indentified ourselves.
Yes, respect all humans. But there's no reason to "respect" their silly myths. Especially when those who truly believe the myths are murdering people.
Those who pay lip-service to religion, without truly believing the word of their personal holy book allow the fanatics and fundamentalists to exist by preserving the mindless idea that faith without evidence is somehow noble.
Read this book, and be enlightened. You have nothing to lose but mythology -- you won't lose your desire to help others, be friendly, or love thy neighbor.
