A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the
grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11.
With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines 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. He shows how religion fuels war,
foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion
makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight
into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of
the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.
