“Whilst having strong religious convictions myself I am always happy to listen to clear, well reasoned and thoughtful opinions that oppose mine. Thus I sought out a book by that well known atheist Richard Dawkins, and proceeded to read "The God Delusion". I found this book ridiculous in many ways and I presume there are better examples of atheist reasoning around, so if anyone can suggest one be my guest.
I won't go in to lengthy discussion but for those interested I'll say this; Dawkins fails to adequately critique many of the views he opposes. To say he constructs "straw men" would be an understatement. Many of positions supporting the existence of God are poorly understood, represented or described. It reads a little like a blog, with a condescending tone and little effort in explaining the shortcomings of his own views and possible solutions. If you are after intelligent discussion I'm afraid you may be disappointed here. ”
