Evolutionary philosophy - book reviews

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins

In recent years, the tension between competing religious beliefs has climbed to a dangerous new level. Adding fuel to the fire is The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, which reads like a declaration of war upon mainstream religion.

Dawkins is one of today's most vocal advocates for atheism and his new book is a potent expression of a growing atheist viewpoint. While this book will almost certainly offend some believers, it will also bring relief to many skeptics.

Everyone has different ideas about religion and you cannot expect an unbiased review of a book like this one. I believe in science and evolution, like Dawkins does, and my main aim was to write a clear and accurate summary of the book so that those who have not read it can form an educated opinion of it.

I hope to have truthfully represented what Dawkins was trying to say, but at the same time, I have not hesitated to expose whatever flaws I perceive in his arguments.

Hold on tight to whatever faith you may have and brace yourself for a chapter-by-chapter summary and analysis of what Richard Dawkins wrote in The God Delusion.
