Caution: ‘God Delusion’ might turn you atheist

A critical look at Richard Dawkins' new book, The God Delusion.

Few religious-minded individuals will likely read a book titled “The God Delusion.” But perhaps they should.

Many, perhaps rightly, have charged Dawkins with intolerance. He dismisses religion in general as “nonsense,” describes the Old Testament God as a jealous psychopath and blames organized religion for wars, genocide and homophobia. In one of his hyperbolic fits, he likens religious education to child abuse.
