  • 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.

    Thought provoking & Logic Inducing Read

    This is on of the most 'sane' books I have come across. Dawkins as usual does a great job showing theists the door. The subtle sarcasm throughout the book is enjoyable. More than anything, this books is a must read for all those who have been brought up to believe in any form of supernatural power. With absolute, unbiased logic, Dawkins proves that there isn't and can in all probability never be something as hypothetical as GOD.

    I'd recommend this book to all the agnostic people out there wh...

    MASTERPIECE!

    I must say I'm reading this book for about the 4th time since I bought it a few months ago, and by now it seems to me not only absolutely logical, unbiased and eloquently written, but also necessary in a country like ours where religion is given so much importance due to political and media influence.
    The book may at first seem harshly written, but on second reading it will make you question everything you've been told since your childhood, and I daresay you may end up agreeing with all the p...

    Awesome

    Richard Dawkins is an Inspiration to every secular people out here. I really love his works Especially The God Delusion. Everyone (both religious and secular people) should be open-minded to read this book at least once in their lifetime. Worth your time and money.💯

    An excellent book

    The book is not just for atheists about the non existence of God.It is a work which explains how the universe especially the biological world works in an easy to understand manner. The book deserves to be read by believers and non believers alike. Thanks to Dawkins atheists can now come out of the closet. In a world destroyed by religious fundalmentalism for centuries, the book is like a breath of fresh air.

    Richard Dawkins fan here !!

    Excellent book. Probably the best rational arguments against the existence of GOD (of all forms and kinds) will be found here. Helps tackle the ignorance (both known and unknown) that a blind belief can inspire. There is no logical/rational contradiction to anything written here. Really important and interesting read if you want to discover more about your belief in GOD (if any).

    A Must-Read in the 21st Century

    I will be short. The God Delusion is an epic book. Brilliant and fantastic. Well-argued, humorous, and sarcastic at times. It's all the intellectual criticism of religions and other forms of supernatural worship/belief put together in one place under a readable tone. Anyone can digest the analogies and real life cases provided. It's genuinely a powerful book and we need everybody to read this to open our eyes and end faith. Of course, not everybody will believe it -- truth becomes pretty bitt...

    Perhaps One of the Best Literary Texts Which Describes The Vices of Religion

    Perhaps the best modern literature which ridicules the idea of religion includes the texts written by Prof. Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. 'The God Delusion' and 'God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything' are both excellent books which adopt very different approaches when they address the issue of religion.

    Prof. Richard Dawkins relies on the use of logic in the form of Socratic Method. He uses supreme logical statements and frameworks which are very hard to counter-argue...

    In a bizarre way, Dawkins has lowered the bar for Science and Scientific Writing.

    I'm a BIG fan of Dawkins' works, most of which are fascinating, illuminating and above all, scientifically strong. My biggest disappointment with this work is it does not have a scientifically strong case. Sorry, but that's just a fact.
    Let me state that I am not going to pitch for existence of god(s) or bat for religions. I'm simply going to highlight the SCIENTIFIC SHORTCOMINGS in this book, specifically with respect to understanding of Consciousness.

    There's much to agree with in this bo...
