I bought this book thinking that there may be a few good arguments refuting Religion. Man was I disappointed! If I could sum up the book in two words they would be; lies and deceit. I don't think that a page went by without Dawkins relying on either lies or deceit to advance his ideas, some concepts have been long abandoned by philosophers, and for good reasons (though that doesnâ€™t stop Dawkins!). Dawkins seems to rely solely on the readerâ€™s ignorance for his ideas to succeed, and unfortunately many people are very ignorant of the Bible, philosophy and religion. Almost every concept that he proposed I refuted instantly, or simply tried banging my head against the densest object that I could find in frustration, such is the fallacious content of the book. He consistently makes assertions that are entirely misleading or are just downright false. I have read many comments from professors of philosophy on this book and it is alarming! Though I shouldnâ€™t be surprised that so many philosophers find Dawkins work appalling, after all Dawkins is only a biologist! Donâ€™t think that I am a â€˜Dawkins haterâ€™ though, this is not the case. I find many of his other works eloquent and empirical based. But as many people believe, his latest work is far removed from his past glory! If you think I am just bluffing then I suggest purchasing "The Dawkins Delusion" by Alister McGrath (a highly esteemed philosopher) for a concise and authoritative refutation of Dawkins latest work). If you are interested in justifying your atheism DON'T BUY THIS BOOK!!! Iâ€™m sure there are better ones out there. The philosophical and theological content of this book is quite amateur. Zero stars
