Synopsis

The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types.

His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between ‘intelligent design’ and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women’s and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind.

Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. 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.

The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.

God is dead....
January 11th, 2015
.....you heard it hear first. An extremely well reasoned, argued and succinctly written case against the need for god and why man's obsession with religion has no basis in science. Richard Dawkins doesn't actually prove there is no god, in fact like any true scientist would he proves there simply is no requirement to resort to god to explain anything we see in our universe, it's origin, our development and evolution as a species or any otjer phenomenon that has been used as a proof. of gods existence. He simply shows there is no necessity for god. at all and once you've done that you se how juvenille the beluef in deities actually is. A must read fir anyone who wants to get a grip on reality
