Ahh yes, great book. Not the best by Dawkins though. There are many other freethought books that blow that one away. The best book I've ever read is Atheism: The Case Against God by George Smith. That one is definantly a must read. Other than that Sam Harris' "A letter to a christian nation" is really good, and Dan Barker's "Losing faith in faith: from preacher to atheist."

 

There is a great forum for discussion here at, www.rationalresponders.com

 

Introduce yourself and learn more about the importance of critical thought.

Dawkins has even better books than that one?!? I can't wait to read them!

 

Yeah, but the others aren't really on religion as much as the god delusion. His others stick to evolutionary biology and whatnot.

 

I just finished "The God Delusion" and felt like someone had finally stated (so eloquently) what I have been thinking for years. Granted, I haven't really looked that far into atheism or agnosticism so it's no mystery that I have missed many great books on the topic.

 

Yeah for real. When I first saw his root of all evil documentaries it was like "wow, it's about time someone said this." I definantly encourage you to read sam harris as well.

I love this book. Dawkins writes in such a lucid manner that the book is both can reach an academic and general audience. I always appreciate philosophers who do that. Too often such books are written such that one needs extensive training to understand them.

 

I also thought highly of his efforts to humanize atheism to readers who might otherwise have highly prejudiced opinions of them. I'm sure more than one atheist appreciated that.
