Book Review: The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins

Posted by jaystile on November 18, 2008

I just finished reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. This non-fiction book systemically points out what is wrong with religion in general and why it is not necessary to believe any of the things you were brainwashed to believe since you’ve been born.

This book was not as heavy-handed or technical as his previous books;’The Blind Watchmaker’ or ‘The Selfish Gene’. If you already consider yourself an atheist or agnostic you’ll enjoy (or be deeply disturbed if you are a theist) by the absurdities of religion and the terrible things they make otherwise normal people say or do. And if you are religious I’m sure you’ll avoid the book anyway so it does not shatter your worldview. But remember, “Unquestioned faith is not a virtue”.
