Description

In this interesting piece; the author argues that Richard Dawkins has failed in his attempts to put a good rational argument for atheism.
The professor uses the rather feeble approach of setting up straw men only to dismantle them with great relish. These repeated mischaracterizations of faith do the atheist camp no favours. All it does is betray a vitriolic personal agenda.

It is argued that The God delusion has helped to perpetuate two major modern myths. First that religion and science contradict each other and second that Theists are unthinking drones. If Aristotle, Augustine, Plotinus, Aquinas, Descartes, Kant, Einstein, Collins and thousands of other genius's are unthinking drones -this would make Richard Dawkins intelligence amoeba like.

A rational case for Theism is proposed.

    Waste of time reading, its no different to what any other theist tries to say to use as evidence for the existence of a deity. His responses don't deserve your time of day. The over-confidence he has in himself to think he would only need 15 pages to give any conceivable argument to Richard Dawkins is nothing short of amusing.
  • Nice try!

    What is a quark? Does time really stop at the speed of light? Like Ian McCoy's profession (magician/mentalist) the book is based solely upon ignorance. Next time you try and take a stab at Richard Dawkins work don't use an imaginary spoon.
  • Pitiful, not worth downloading

    The author makes no real effort to further his own cause. In this 'book' he uses the tired argument that without god we could not exist therefore that is proof that god exists. The author also claims to be a reformed atheist and tries to use his reformation as proof of god, i.e. I didn't believe in god but now I do, therefore god must exist.

    Overvalued at the price. The author criticises Dawkins for setting up straw men and demonishing them, and mischaracterising opponents arguments, however, this characterises the "Theist Response". Dawkins, as an individual, and his ideas, merit critical evaluation and merit a thorough critique. One will have to look elsewhere to find that critique.
