Publisher Description

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.

Dawkins is brilliant!!!

I just put this book in non-fiction and the holy bible under fiction. No longer are we shamed into believing this scam called Christianity.

Wow!

Dawkins is a genius. This book was amazing. I can't imagine how anyone could read this and still make an argument for religion. You don't have to be an atheist to agree with Dawkins, you just need half a brain.

Absolutely Brilliant!

Dawkins nailed it! I can't even comprehend how someone could read this book and not see the truth. The ability some people have to convince themselves otherwise is always astounding. Read this book!
