In The God Delusion, philosopher Richard Dawkins evaluates popular arguments for the existence of God. The idea that God is not an object that can be accessed and reviewed using human reason is rejected. Instead, evidence that proves with at least 51 percent certainty is presented to prove that God does, in fact, not exist, casting reasonable doubt on the efficacy and usefulness of belief in God.
Genuine curiosity as disciplined by a sound scientific method is far more useful than religions. Religion is all too often based on superstition. An in-depth investigation of the intellectual bankruptcies of polytheism and monotheism, the secular beliefs of the Founding Fathers, and the Galton and Stannard prayer experiments underscore this idea. In contrast, the argument for natural selection shows it can account for the whole of human life, rather than the idea that there is one divine creator - a statement that in itself leads to more questions, such as the origins of that single creator....

This book and subject matter is juvenile
The subject matter in this book represent very little thought and intellect. Very egoic perspective that is subconsciously designed to satisfy on side of the argument by attempting to prove the other side of the argument is wrong.
I cannot recommend this book to anyone. The author is mind is trapped in a hell that his own mind has created. No intelligence here what so ever.

Surprisingly dull examination of Dawkins' great book - I had high hopes for this but it was a dry read from a script analysis of the books key points - might as well have been read by a machine. 30 minutes long, don't bother!!!
