Reviews for The God Delusion
Granted Dawkins' writing style is extremely engaging and profound, and while his case against religion seems to obliterate the concept of theism, his lobby is not quite there. Many of his arguments are borderline petty. In my opinion, his underlying argument that the only reason we should not do evil is to prolong our existence is pure nonsense. The moment morality becomes a case of prolonging our existence, the world will become chaotic. Many immoral acts do nothing to effect our existence, yet these acts remain immoral.
While this is a very interesting read, and while Mr Dawkin's bandwagon (along with the new athiests) will hail it's 'logic', it does not compare to the philosophical arguments which have been debating religion for centuries. by Michael Alam
an eye-opening truth
We've all been confused at least once if the things we believe in are missleading and contradictory to our own reasoning. In "The God Delusion" Dawkins is simply following reason to discover that not only Abrahamic, but all religions are wrong. If there is a God, than he/she/it is certainly not a omnipotent and omniscent creature that squats in some corner waiting if some of us will say a prayer or cheat one's spouse or say a naughty word... Well, isn't that so puny for some God to do at all!?
And what's making us to follow moral values if not religion?! Dawkings has a simple answer to that question too. It's in our genes. We're simply trying to survive and to pass our genes to the next generation. If we would be evil to one another, we wouldn't last long as a species. by Igor Bozovicunder review
