    Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why de Bart D. Ehrman (robertf)
    robertf: Dawkins is passionately trying to refute an undefined hypothesis - this is perhaps one of his least succesful works. Ehrman's book does not have conversion to atheism as its aim - it is a description of the scholarly analysis of texts. The reason it is devastating to religion is that it undermines any claim to biblical authenticity by exposing contradictions between different manuscripts. It achieves what Dawkins aims to much more subtly and scientifically.… (mais)

    The Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener de Martin Gardner (ehines)
    ehines: While I agree with Dawkins and disagree with Gardner about the existence of God, Gardner's open-mindedness judicious and friendly tone, even in error, serves as a rebuke to Dawkins' inability to understand or respect his intellectual opponents.
  20. 314
    The Dawkins Letters: Challenging Atheist Myths de David Robertson (OwenGriffiths)
    OwenGriffiths: The God Delusion offers some of the most popular, if not the most reasoned or effective, arguments "against faith". Robertson attempts to dispel a few perceived misconceptions. This is a good place to start if you wish to understand why a lot of people of (any) faith disregard Dawkins argument in this book. Robertson does not provide a total response to atheism itself, nor does he set out to do so. The God Delusion repays careful reading, because even if one may disagree with them, or argue that they do not represent the best of Atheistic philosophy, one can not deny that Dawkins represents some of the most common critiques of faith, which people of faith are forced to respond to.… (mais)

Dawkins challenges the reader to think about their beliefs, and to recognize that our strongly held religious beliefs can often simply be accidents of birth, inherited from our parents. Born to other parents in other cultures could have given us quite different beliefs. Religions would prefer we not question the beliefs we've been taught, however blind faith can prevent us from challenging, what in retrospect, should be questioned. I would imagine that the young victims (some as young as 9 years old) of the recently convicted sexual predator Tony Alamo could be an example of how blind faith in our religious leaders can have harmful consequences. While Dawkins doesn't take us down this path, I imagine that Jim Bakker, convicted of fraud after soliciting millions from his followers, Warren Jeffs, Billy James Hargis, Ted Haggard, and a variety of predatory priests are other examples of leaders who deserved to be questioned. Dawkins makes the case that it's OK to question. Perhaps some beliefs, when challenged, need to be discarded. On the other hand, I imagine, other beliefs or leaders capable of standing up to questions, may ultimately be strengthened. ( )

Heard an interview with Dawkins on my favorite NPR show that kept me glued to the radio. Someone's dubbed him as Darwin's rottweiler--I couldn't resist.

OK--so I haven't actually finished the whole thing yet, but most of his arguments are ones I've heard already, and I mostly agree...it just gives more fuel to the fire. The really great thing about this book is that it makes me feel better, a little less villanized, about being a "de facto" atheist; the not-so-great thing about this book is that many parts are used as a vendetta against his foes...gets a little tiresome. When you separate the wheat from the chaff, though, there's some very interesting information that's bound to get you riled up one way or the other. ( )

Finished 2nd reading via audiobook on 4.01.21
It was wonderfully narrated by Dawkins and his wife and made it that much more enjoyable. I have changed as a person since I first read this book, in the sense that I'm trying better to understand why people hold on to religion so tightly. I have had friends and family pass away since I first read this book two years ago, and I can see why people feel comforted by the belief of an afterlife. I still don't subscribe to that belief -- I still identify as an atheist. I think as long as religion isn't being forced into the spheres of education or the judicial system, then let them eat. One of my good friends is Christian and a firm believer and yet whenever we get together we both have wonderful philosophical conversations on life and debate about belief versus non-belief.

Dawkins comes across as too aggressive in some parts, which I don't think will help convert the religious who do venture to read this. Calm debate and conversation is a better alternative. I think it's impossible to convert someone who is entrenched in their beliefs though. They have to want to change themselves, just as I did a long time ago. I was raised Catholic, but around my mid twenties I began to question my faith, and after a lot of thinking and pondering I let loose the chains of religion and embraced the freedom of thought that science gives.



1st reading:
Let me start off by saying that if you are an atheist, then this book will only strengthen your position. If you find yourself debating creationists/religious people and you need ammo then Dawkins will provide plenty for you.

If you are an agnostic, the arguments found within this book may make you leap into the realm of atheism.

If you are straddling the fence of Belief/Faith, with atheism on one side and agnosticism on the other, then this book may push you either way. I emphasize the word "may" because Dawkins comes off rather acidic and vitriolic and that might scare off those that are questioning their position on faith.

I started this book as an agnostic, but almost all of Dawkins' points only solidified my position and ultimately converted me into an atheist. I was already at the cusp of moving away from agnosticism and too many good points were brought up to think that a God/Gods exist. I can go on about this but I won't.

This was my first book by Dawkins and I enjoyed his writing style. He splits his arguments into sections so it was easy to close the book and reflect after ingesting the information. Ignoring his scathing comments about believers, there is plenty of logic and reasoning to be found within the pages. Overall, I liked the book.

I may read The Dawkins Delusion so I can read the other side's arguments. ( )

This book is Richard Dawkins' argument against the existence of any sort of divine being that runs the world. While getting deeper at times than I was comfortable following (quantum physics and philosophical arguments sometimes do that to me), I found it very interesting, and it addressed many of the questions raised by the religious when they're confronted with Atheists.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when religious people say that one can't have morals if one isn't religious. Dawkins does a splendid job of debunking that idea, and I recommend the book for that section alone.

I also loved his use of "American Taliban" to describe American fundamentalist religions. I know he didn't coin the term, but this was the first time I'd heard it, and I will be using it from now on.

I'm sure this book would horrify and anger many of the faithful. However, if you are open-minded and willing to listen, this book opens a whole world. ( )

That was the first time I had ever considered, even in my own thoughts to myself, that I could be an atheist. I was 36. My husband was down with this—he told me he was an atheist, too. I felt it was weird we were finally having a conversation about this after being married for six years, but maybe we intrinsically knew all along.

In The God Delusion, Dawkins argues that evolution has removed the need for a God hypothesis to explain life, and advances in physics may soon do the same for the universe. Further, the existence of God is a proper question for science, and the answer is no.
adicionado por Taphophile13 | editarThe Age, Barney Zwartz (Nov 24, 2006)
 
Despite the many flashes of brilliance in this book, Dawkins’s failure to appreciate just how hard philosophical questions about religion can be makes reading it an intellectually frustrating experience.
 
Creationists and believers in God are right to see him as their arch-enemy. In The God Delusion he displays what a formidable adversary he is. It is a spirited and exhilarating read. In the current climate of papal/Islamic stand-off, it is timely too.

Pantheism is sexed-up atheism. Deism is watered-down theism.
But hate only has to prove it is religious, and it no longer counts as hate.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
I am agnostic only to the extent that I am agnostic about fairies at the bottom of the garden.
I am no more fundamentalist when I say evolution is true than when I say it is true that New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere.
