The book provides a strong argument against the validity of all religions and highlights the fact that there is little proof of the existence of any supernatural creator.
I come from a predominantly christian family, but the scientific argument Dawkin's presents has coverted me to an atheist. I know some of you American's feel strongly about your beliefs,however would you ever consider taking the time to read something like this???

God Delusion is a good book, If you liked that then you will probably like a movie called "The God Who Wasn't There" you can watch it on google or buy it online.

Its about the hero pattern and the myth of Christ

here are some clips:

Ive heard the book is great.

'The God that wasnt there' ive seen, but i didnt like the fact the guy who made it seemed bitter at his fundamentalist christian upbringing. It was as if he made it to 'get back' at his school and teachers.
The animated scene at the beginning immediatly made me think he is just out to mock christians, rather than make a serious subjective documentry.
It did have some good moments tho.

Never heard of it.

But I wouldn't bother readin it even if I did.

I don't need a book to tell me there's no god. Just lookin at what goes on in the world showed me there ain't one.

Only Dawkins I've read has been his latest, The Greatest Show on Earth, which is a book on evolution and the practically irrefutable evidence on it. I should be reading God Delusion soon; it's available through our district library system here.

His interview with O'Reilly (known in the U.S. as a gigantic [conservative] ideologue) is pretty entertaining when you understand that ole' Billo is actually behaving in a nurtured manner because he knows it's to his benefit not to get too riled up opposite such a brilliant professor.
