Books Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion Monday 2 July 2007
The most famous of the recent waves of atheist books deals with all the topics that might come up in a discussion between atheists and religious people: the existence of a flying spaghetti monster or other types of gods, the root of morality, Darwin's discovery of evolution, the atrocities motivated by religion, etc. It's a neat overview of how rational common sense deals with these issues, but it's kind of boring to agree with everything and I'd already thought of most arguments myself. It should be mandatory reading for all children being indoctrinated with religion, but that'll be for another century. The most interesting parts to me were those where Dawkins speaks with passion about the many mysteries of the universe that science is only beginning to tackle. So I should probably have read another of his books. 7/10
