The God Delusion from the Author: Richard Dawkins. 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.

The God Delusion from the Author: Richard Dawkins. A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11. With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. 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, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.

Der Gotteswahn from the Author: Richard Dawkins. Zwei Dinge vorweg; Einen tatsĂ€chlichen Gottesbeweis zu fĂŒhren, an dem keine berechtigten Zweifel mehr angebracht wĂ€ren, ist bislang niemandem gelungen. Das Umgekehrte freilich gilt gleichermaßen! Auch ein Beweis fĂŒr die Nichtexistenz Gottes konnte bisher nicht erbracht werden. Und es steht auch nicht zu erwarten, dass sich daran in absehbarer Zeit etwas Ă€ndern könnte. Auch wenn er selbst felsenfest vom Gegenteil ĂŒberzeugt sein mag, und wenn noch so viele ihm folgen mögen; Auch Richard Dawkins ist dies mit Der Gotteswahn nicht gelungen. Das freilich ist auch kein Wunder, weil eine endgĂŒltige Antwort auf diese, die gesamte Menschheitsgeschichte durchziehende Streitfrage nun einmal schlechterdings unmöglich ist. Soweit, so gut. Aber bedeutet dies, dass man sich die LektĂŒre dieses mit großem Furor verfassten Werkes sparen sollte? Mitnichten! Denn vieles von dem, was der Evolutionsbiologe Dawkins gegen die Religionen vorbringt -- denn nur gegen diese und nicht etwa gegen den nach seiner festen Überzeugung gar nicht existierenden Gott kann seine Kampfschrift ja gerichtet sein -- lohnt es, dass man sich damit ebenso unvoreingenommen wie kritisch auseinandersetzt. Auch wenn man die Schlussfolgerungen des Autors nicht teilen mag, so bietet Der Gotteswahn doch einen, wenn auch sehr subjektiven Überblick der Genese der „Gotteshypothese, der gĂ€ngigen Argumente fĂŒr und wider die Existenz Gottes sowie der Wurzeln von Moral und Religion. Auch Dawkins Entwicklung seiner Hypothese, dass ReligiositĂ€t nichts weiter als der Ausdruck einer -- was freilich zu denken geben sollte, mehr als massenhaft vorkommenden und ergo wohl anthropologisch einigermaßen konstanten -- psychischen Dysfunktion sei, lohnt nachvollzogen zu werden (und sei es auch nur, um sie fĂŒr sich zu widerlegen). Über die Existenz oder Nichtexistenz Gottes freilich ist damit immer noch nichts Abschließendes gesagt. Aber das war ja auch nicht zu erwarten.

The Good Delusion An Unethical Response To Richard Dawkins The God Delusion from the Author: Rodney Jenman. An unreligious and unusual response to Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion" which largely discusses ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche and Buddhism.This book invites atheism in a direction that has not been yet been widely trodden with regards to its fundamental arguments, giving it in an unexpected and refreshingly unusual challenge.The philosophical root of atheism is challenged in a manner that Dawkins breezes over that he implicitly subscribes to and does not discuss at great length, which is an old philosophical standpoint that has interested philosophers for hundreds, if not thousands of years before Dawkins.Be prepared to never look at sanctity in the same way again as Jenman makes a highly strange, unethical and entertaining romp through the current foundations of human belief systems under the fire of modern scientific excellence, without claiming that Dawkins has made any real errors or arguing for the existence of any metaphysical or supernatural reality.
