Book review: The God Delusion
By user12625760 on Nov 18, 2006
The fact that it is just a week since I got a copy of “The God Delusion” and am now writing about completing it speaks volumes for the book. It is a fascinating, thought provoking book, that does not appear to pull any punches and is written with passion that comes through the text. For the record I've never read any book like it before.
The books defence of Darwin in arguing against Creationism and for Evolution the passion jumps from the pages along with the representation of the facts and arguments from both sides.
The fact that I am still uneasy about writing about it shows what a good job has been done in stifling any criticism of religious belief which is one of the points of the book, it's just easier to ignore religion or pretend you believe than say you don't. However it is when Dawkins moves onto the dangers of religion that the book becomes most interesting or concerning.
I would recommend the book to anyone.
