In this interesting piece; the author argues that Richard Dawkins has failed in his attempts to put a good rational argument for atheism.
The professor uses the rather feeble approach of setting up straw men only to dismantle them with great relish. These repeated mischaracterizations of faith do the atheist camp no favours. All it does is betray a vitriolic personal agenda.
It is argued that The God delusion has helped to perpetuate two major modern myths. First that religion and science contradict each other and second that Theists are unthinking drones. If Aristotle, Augustine, Plotinus, Aquinas, Descartes, Kant, Einstein, Collins and thousands of other genius's are unthinking drones -this would make Richard Dawkins intelligence amoeba like.
A rational case for Theism is proposed.
This author seems to have missed the point of God Delusion and seems to be throwing a paddy because someone has stood up to religion and all it's fallacies.
It's a shame this book has come up as the second of the hits when I search Richard Dawkins. If you believe in god or not it does not matter. However this Author just seems to be throwing a tantrum around because the professor made good points. Please ignore this book and read 'The god delusion'
The author’s love of God is not matched by his love of proof-reading. That said, I’m fascinated that
his armchair logic fails to explain or dispute anything much. I wonder why he bothered to put skin to keyboard. The point of atheism is for me the undeniable observation that God only exists through belief and belief is only one man (or one woman’s) subjective and emotional connection with reality. As for reality itself, that can only be known through experience, and only understood through experimentation and deduction. Reality must be objective and be able to be understood by everyone. Belief however is peculiar to each individual and therefore more accurately described as emotion, state of mind or, less prosaically, gut-feeling. Put simply, if no one understood how atoms worked, they would still work. If no one believed in God he (why always a he?) would be an unemployed entity in a nonexistent non universe of thought.
