    Dawkins is a genius and is doing great work in helping people to understand that religion is an invention of mankind to put wealth and power in the hands of the few

    It is clear that the less educated you are the more likely you are to be religious

    That explains a lot

    In a previous life Terry Eagleton would have been scoffing at those idiots who thinl that the earth goes round the sun or that evolution is nonesense

    In twenty tears time the church will adopt the views expressed in the God delusion and cclaim them as their own insisting that god doesn't exist

    Ha ha ha

    or more likely the same small band of professional atheist wannabes will still be trying to peddle their wares.

    Please, recognize that people like Dawkins are Anti-Theists, they oppose the belief in God and Religion. As an Atheist, who does not oppose the belief in God or Religion, and therefore has no hatred or bogotry towards Theists or Theism, I believe the distinction is necessary.

    sorry, thought my use of the term "professional atheist" covered that base.

    Thank you dogtower. I think the label for Dawkins and Hitchens should be Atheist fanatic. Like religious fanatics they seem willing to attack a belief system without studying it or understanding it. Not all atheist are the same. Like members of other religions many are tolerant of other views.

    Dawkins is a genius and he has thouands of years of indoctrination to counter. When you consider how repulsive and ridculous religion is and that the republican party is fielding evolution-denyers in 2012 you can forgive for getting slightly redical.
