SUMMARY:
A preeminent scientist asserts the irrationallity of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society from the Crusades to 9/11. He critiques God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. In so doing, he makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just irrational, but potentially deadly. Dawkins has fashioned an impassioned, rigorous rebuttal to religion, to be embraced by anyone who sputters at the inconsistencies and cruelties that riddle the Bible, bristles at the inanity of «intelligent design,» or agonizes over fundamentalism in the Middle East— or Middle America.— From publisher description.

👎Pek tutmadım

Any serious thinker from both sides of the debate will not be swayed, much less impressed, by the caricature and straw-man arguments advanced in this book. His treatment of philosophy and theology leaves anyone with knowledge on this subjects laughing or crying.

‘Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful
without having to believe that there are
fairies at the bottom of it too?’

vocate an alternative view: any creative intelligence, of sufficient complexity to design anything, comes into existence only as the end product of an extended process of gradual evolution. Creative intelligences, being evolved, necessarily arrive late in the universe, and therefore cannot be responsible for designing it. God, in the sense defined, is a delusion; and, as later chapters will show, a pernicious delusion.
