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.
