'Timely, impassioned and brilliantly argued' Rod Liddle, Sunday Times 'A spirited and exhilarating read' Joan Bakewell, Guardian ANNIVERSARY EDITION WITH NEW MATERIAL The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types. His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. 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. The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.

Read Fortress Press's interview with Richard Grigg, only on fortressforum.com! It is ironic but true that most theologians do not understand Godin the same way that is being criticized so heavily in such worksas Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion. In fact, argues RichardGrigg, most theologians left behind an unalloyed, classical theismabout two hundred years ago. Yet, Grigg argues, the many efforts to reconcile contemporaryscientific worldviews with Christian faith stop shy of the radicalreconception of God begun in contemporary theology andmade necessary by contemporary science. Grigg's erudite andprovocative book calls for a more radical theology, in whichnotions of divine transcendence and immanence, personhood,power, and the divine role in the evolving universe are radicalizedand reconceived. Building on the work of such theologians asSallie McFague and Gordon Kaufman, and with a strong grasp ofthe particulars of contemporary cosmology and biology, Grigg'sexciting work challenges us to an intellectual honesty as sturdy asour faith.

An unreligious and unusual response to Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion" which largely discusses ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche and Buddhism.This book invites atheism in a direction that has not been yet been widely trodden with regards to its fundamental arguments, giving it in an unexpected and refreshingly unusual challenge.The philosophical root of atheism is challenged in a manner that Dawkins breezes over that he implicitly subscribes to and does not discuss at great length, which is an old philosophical standpoint that has interested philosophers for hundreds, if not thousands of years before Dawkins.Be prepared to never look at sanctity in the same way again as Jenman makes a highly strange, unethical and entertaining romp through the current foundations of human belief systems under the fire of modern scientific excellence, without claiming that Dawkins has made any real errors or arguing for the existence of any metaphysical or supernatural reality.

The God Delusion: by Richard Dawkins | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review Preview: In The God Delusion, philosopher Richard Dawkins evaluates popular arguments for the existence of God. The idea that God is not an object that can be accessed and reviewed using human reason is rejected. Instead, evidence that proves with at least 51% certainty is presented to prove that God does, in fact, not exist, casting reasonable doubt on the efficacy and usefulness of belief in God. Genuine curiosity as disciplined by a sound scientific method is far more useful than religions. Religion is all too often based on superstition. An in depth investigation of the intellectual bankruptcies of polytheism and monotheism, the secular beliefs of the Founding Fathers, and the Galton and Stannard prayer experiments underscore this idea. In contrast, the argument for natural selection shows it can account for the whole of human life rather than the idea that there is one divine creator, a statement that in itself leads to more questions, such as the origins of that single creator… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Religion did not develop as a consequence of man's need or desire to understand the world and his own existence. Religion does not spring naturally from the normal workings of the human mind. Religion originated because of fear. Our human ancestors lived in constant fear of the unknown, but their greatest fear was death. They couldn't accept this fact and sought for an alternative, creating the myth that dying was a passage into another life, and this is how religion originated. They sought to find in religion a relief from their fear, and religion was thus created as a result of panic. Our human ancestors lived in constant fear from the threat of the hostile environment and had to face many fearful and difficult situations. They formed ritualistic groups that involved rhythmic dancing, and the ingestion of psychotropic substances that produced ecstatic emotional states. The ecstatic state was felt as the highest heavenly connection, and their fear of death was replaced by happiness, serenity, and a dazzling light. The experience was felt as an awakening to a world where all things exist in complete unity and as a deep sense of union with God. However, their seizures of ecstasy altered their brain structure, leading to the evolution of a defective brain. This brain defect was then passed on to the succeeding generations, and became a genetic abnormality among all people of religious faith. Therefore, religion contributed to the degeneration in the evolution of the human race, allowing the most brutal and intellectually inferior to survive in greater numbers.

Kann Gott in einem skeptischen Zeitalter wiederbelebt werden? Was wäre nötig, um den Menschen ein spirituelles Leben zu geben, kraftvoller als alles, was es in der Vergangenheit je gab? Deepak Chopra greift diese Fragen mit Eloquenz und Tiefe in seinem neuen Buch auf. Sein überzeugender Rat: Gott an der Quelle des menschlichen Bewusstseins zu suchen. Er findet sich in jedem von uns selbst und mit ihm auch die Kraft, das eigene Leben zu verwandeln. Gott ist in Schwierigkeiten. Mit dem Aufstieg des militanten Atheismus, einer aggressiv-polemischen Bewegung angeführt von Richard Dawkins, haben viele Menschen resigniert und sich der Idee gebeugt, dass Gott ein überholter Mythos in der modernen Welt sei. Die Argumente scheinen zu stark. Doch tief in sich spüren sie eine andere Wahrheit und die unerschütterliche Sehnsucht nach höherem Sinn, nach einer Gegenwart Gottes. Deepak Chopra widerspricht den Argumenten jener atheistischen Bewegung mit Kompetenz und Leidenschaft. Vielmehr sieht er im Hier und Jetzt die perfekte Zeit für eine neue Spiritualität, die vor allem eines sein sollte: verlässliche Erkenntnis einer höheren Wirklichkeit. Indem er einen Weg zu Gott skizziert, der den Unglauben zu einem ersten Schritt des Erwachens macht, zeigt Chopra uns, dass die Krise des Glaubens wie Feuer ist, durch das wir hindurch müssen auf dem Weg zur Kraft, Wahrheit und Liebe. Auch in der Wissenschaft haben sich längst Dogmen etabliert, an denen zu rütteln das Ende der eigenen Karriere bedeuten kann. "Doch im Gegensatz zu religiösen Fundamentalisten sind sich wissenschaftliche Ideologen nicht bewusst, dass ihre Weltsicht allein auf Glauben basiert. Sie meinen, sie kennen die Wahrheit. Sie glauben, die Wissenschaft habe die wesentlichen Fragen bereits gelöst." So hat Szientismus die schädliche Wirkung, jede Art von Denken und Forschung zu unterdrücken, die nicht den etablierten Richtlinien entspricht. "Der Glaube muss zum Wohle aller bewahrt werden", schreibt Chopra.
