Description"The God Delusion" caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types. His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. 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. "The God Delusion" is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.

Reviews for The God Delusion
No answers - Just more questions...
I had always questioned the irrationality of religious belief and never really been able to decide why religion didn't grip me in the way it gripped others. The God Delusion brought together many of the questions I had already asked myself as well as making me think of more.
Dawkins covers the subject of religious belief from many angles both Historic and Psychological but always looks at the matter from a purely scientific viewpoint. The lack of scientific evidence for the existence of a god is the basis of the book and the arguments drawn within it.
Having previously considered religious belief to be an inert part of humanity's development I am now more aware that having religious beliefs alters the way an invidividual lives their life. by Alison Smith
