Is Richard Dawkins the New Messiah? A Layman's Critique of 'The God Delusion' (revised edition)

ByR. J. Fallon

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A penetrating critical commentary on Richard Dawkins's atheological best-seller 'The God Delusion', whose faulty and vacuous logic is exposed and refuted chapter by chapter. Being neither a scientist nor a theologian (hence a 'layman' in two senses), Fallon is free to approach the so-called 'God question' impartially. He finds that science is no more competent to answer the question than theology, and indeed that scientific rationalism is generally incompetent to answer any of the biggest questions in life. Truth of the kind that matters most to ordinary human beings (as distinct from certain elite biologists or physicists) - moral truth, for example, or the meaning of love - is apprehended, on the contrary, by ordinary human intuition. In this light, Fallon concludes, Dawkins's fervent faith in the redemptive power of science is as sadly delusional as his personal messianic pretensions. This new paperback is a lightly revised version of the 2008 hardcover edition.
