Bestselling author David Berlinski's wise and witty assault on the pretensions of the scientific atheists
Militant atheism is on the rise. In recent years Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens have produced a steady stream of best-selling books denigrating religious belief. These authors are merely the leading edge of a larger movement that includes much of the scientific community.In response, mathematician David Berlinski, himself a secular Jew, delivers a biting defense of religious thought. The Devil's Delusion is a brilliant, incisive, and funny book that explores the limits of science and the pretensions of those who insist it is the ultimate touchstone for understanding our world.

Finally, Wit & Intellect Together!
It is with great Joy that I applaud this amazing book. David has managed, from within a couple of pages and throughout the book, a wonderful display of sarcasm and wit that makes the read so satisfying.
Beyond the great humor in these pages Is a stark contrast between logic and illogic. Darwinism and Common Sense. Seeing Dawkins exposed for the apparent fraud that compels millions of college students to declare "freedom from religion" is attributable to the new cathedral. Superb!!
As Dawkins has affirmed, "...the devil remains in the details...". Sadly the atheist's faith is confused by the supposed "facts" of evolutionary biology. I cannot believe to what lengths Kraus, Dawkins, Hitchens and so many more will go in their hatred of God. Fomenting hostility continues to drive the rejection of mathematics and logic in science wherever we read of the potential best explanations regarding the Semiotic reality described by ID.
If readers are provoked, after reading this great book, to the science of DNA for support of ID, Stephen Myers books, "Signature in the Cell" and "Darwin's Doubt" are must reads!
Whatever else you do in life, Please "keep writing"!!
Thank you David!
