A review on “God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins

2 mn read
In the introductory sections, the author collects the sections, sayings, and arguments of the religious sages and responds to them with particular delicacy. In an interesting section of Dawkins’s book, he seeks to trace religion back, which is very instructive.
 
An interesting review is posted on Goodreads: “In this book, Richard Dawkins carefully examines God in all its forms. From the tyrannical ruler of the Old Testament with his sexual obsession to its safer (albeit different) form, the divine watchmaking that some intellectual thinkers had. His power is central to religions and shows the severity of the improbability of a supreme being. By reinforcing his points with historical and contemporary evidence, Dawkins shows how god intensifies war, intensifies prejudice, and abuses children. The notion of God offers a compelling defense in which belief in God is not only wrong but potentially deadly.

Dawkins tries to explain various scientific theories that are in conflict with religion and to acquaint the reader with this scientific evidence and even the scientific way of thinking.
In The Delusion of God, Dawkins states that the supernatural Creator is almost non-existent; And belief in God is a false belief that contradicts all available evidence. He agrees with Robert Pierce, saying: “When a person has delusions, he is called insane. “When many people have an illusion, they call themselves believers!” As of November 2007, the original (English) version of the book alone had sold 1.5 million copies and was translated into 31 languages. It also ranked second best-selling on Amazon in November 2006.

The book became the New York Times bestseller in early December 2006 and remained on the bestseller list for 51 weeks, ending September 30, 2007. This work, on the one hand, attracted a large audience and on the other hand, several books were written against it.”

(I must remind you, this is not the only evolution or Darwinian theory that is in great conflict with religion, but much larger objections can be drawn from it, such as wasting money, time and energy for religious councils that can be replaced instead with many other useful things. We can help hungry people, advance science or build schools and hospitals, try to collect garbage from the oceans, or build garbage recycling plants, and many other things that help nature.)
