Synopsis

A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11.

With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines 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. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.

    Well written book that presents a lot of facts for why God is a delusion and we make ourselves better people, not God. It touches on theories of why society has created God and the purpose of religion. This is not a book for devout religious people, as they won't understand, but for anyone questioning their faith in a religion, this is a great book to help understand that you are not a horrible person.

    Compelling and informative

    A great read for anyone questioning the religious aspects of their upbringing, or for anyone interested in why religious people believe what they do.

    Ammunition For Atheists

    This well-researched book provides a great overview of the nonsense and adversary effects of religion and belief. Each chapter deals with a topic, delving deep into questions like: Is faith necessary to be moral? Is there a god? Is religion good or bad? Can children be religious? Dawkings provides ample reasoning from theologists, fanatics, fundamentalists, and atheists, and let you make the decision. Faith might be a lot more evil than you think, as clearly demonstrated from one of the many quotes from believers.

    Brilliant from beginning to end

    The best book on religous thinking in modern times. Chapter by chapter all systems of religion are obliterated. I do not think anyone who reads this with an open mind can honestly remain a believer in a God. I am a confirmed "Tooth fairy agnostic"!
