Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes. He critiques God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being.

Every thinking person should read this!

I used to be secular and respect people's religious beliefs for the sake of diversity and universal tolerance. Not anymore. I realize that religion causes more harm than plausible benefits. I have been an atheist since I was 15. "The God Delusion" gave scientific and logical base to my atheism. After reading this, if anyone still believes there's a "man in the sky"... I guess you are delusional. I would like to highlight some points from Dawkins' book that I agree with: One, leaders use religion to their purpose. Two, we don't need religion to know what's good and bad i.e. to be moral. Three, there's no such thing as a muslim, hindu or christian CHILD. Four, religion scars children for life. Five, religion and science are incompatible. Pick one. I choose science.
