Here’s a synopsis of the book:
In 2008, Richard Dawkins wrote a book called “The God Delusion”. The book offered a controversial critique of belief in God. I felt that his critique was flawed on numerous fronts. This book is a summary of my thoughts and a defence of my faith.
Richard Dawkins’ book, The God Delusion, has become a go to source for Atheists when they attempt to dispel the validity of religion. Unfortunately, Dawkins’ arguments are flawed. In this thought provoking book, Todd Dow refutes The God Delusion through a thorough analysis of Dawkins’ arguments. Chapter by chapter, I pinpoint the issues with Dawkins’ arguments, outlining the flaws in Dawkins’ logic and offering valid and sound responses to each of the issues that Dawkins addresses.
The following topics are addressed:
Straw Men – Dawkins’ weak proofs of God
The Ultimate 747 – Is that the best he’s got?
Problems with Organized Religion
The objective roots of morality
The Historical Jesus
The problem with fundamentalism
The slippery slope of abortion
Why not rid ourselves of religion, politics and economics?
Childhood abuse and brainwashing
On evolution and concluding thoughts
And, as an added bonus, I have included an appendix that contains a thought experiment entitled, “Should Atheists Have Children?”
