Alf: Hi. Its me again. Smile

At this point, I have agreed with several minor points but, overall, it has proven to be sheer foolishness. I will finish reading it because I have found several sites and people mentioned in it that will be useful to me. I also have have heard so much about it and how great the book and author are.

Perhaps you might also enjoy a much smaller book which gives a lot of really good reasons that Dawkins is mistaken in his conclusions. Its title is 'The Dawkins Delusion', subtitle, (Atheist fundamentalism and the denial of the divine), and is a very entertaining read indeed. It is by Alister McGrath, a Professor of Historical Theology at Oxford University. It is co written with Joanna Collicut McGrath, a lecturer in Psychology of Religion at Heythrop College, University of London.

It is a very effective critique of Dawkins' logically illegitimate methods of indoctrination.

'The Dawkins Delusion', ISBN 0-281-05927-6

Here are two quotes from informed people who have read both 'The God Delusion' and 'The Dawkins Delusion':

(1) "The God Delusion makes me embarrassed to be an atheist, and the McGraths show why", (Michael Ruse, Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University.

(2) "Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology." Laugh (Terry Eagleton, a cultural and literary critic.)

Regards Chris.
In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 2 Cor. 5:19. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
