This brilliant book by renowned scientist and atheist Richard Dawkins explains the unlikeliness of there being a god in a highly informative, entertaining and down to earth way. I've heard so much about this book and at this price I think it's about time I went ahead and read it. Could be used to take your order above £15.

Good book worth a read, can get a little over technical and scientific, but hey when have you ever heard a god botherer offering up the same?
#5
Very poorly written IMHO.

Folk should check out a few reviews before wasting their time.

Me too lol. Me i'm an agnostic like Homer Simpson and as he says 'Why can't I worship the lord in my own way, by praying like hell on my deathbed":giggle:

Heh, my opinion of Dawkins is that he's probably right on balance, but I HATE the way he argues his point. He confuses the subject, skips over important points and generally makes religious arguments seem reasonable.

All the same, better for your mind and soul (though not eternal one) than Harry Potter. :)

Please have a look at this video (THE COLLAPSE OF ATHEISM), much easier and quicker than reading a book: http://www.harunyahya.com/m_video_detail.php?api_id=1244

Author's quote: We are at a turning point in the history of mankind. Atheism, that has so influenced the world of science and thought since the 18th century, is now undergoing an inevitable collapse. In this film you will see how [COLOR=Green]the most basic assumptions of atheism collapsed with scientific, political and sociological developments in the past decades[/COLOR]. From the theories of Charles Darwin or Sigmund Freud, to the fall of communism or the hippie dream, see how the atheist dogma falls at the dawn of the 21st century.

There is also a nice list of videos in the following link that use science (and only science) to prove that God exists, he created us and he loves us all:

and here is where the alarm bells start ringing
Harun yahaya an invitation to the truth
Doesnt every religion/cult offer up the truth?
if they all offer the truth which are lying?
the only 'proof' offered up is 'if it cant be seen or quantifiable it must be god'
supernatural mumbo jumbo no more relevant than the easter bunny, the tooth fairy or santa, 3 other 'tools' used to mess with childrens minds in addition to the child abuse offered up in the guise of religion, get em while they are young and impressionable
religions/cults of all denominations have been and always will be used as tools of power and control, we all have our own moral compass that doesnt require novels such as the bible to show us how to use it through cherry picked stories added as and when they seemed relevant, written by story tellers looking for a bed for the night and a better meal
but hey this is supposed to be a hot deal community not a soap box

If you dont believe in God, you go to hell, simple as that.

Yes. If bought on it's own from Amazon, this would cost you £6.69. Probably cheaper instore at most supermarkets.

(Yes, you can get free postage if you make your order up to £14.96 or more but that's not the point. ;-) )
#12
Save your money!

Just get a piece of paper and on one side write "there IS a God" and sign it and on the other write "there ISN'T a God" and sign it.

You've now signed up to both sides of the argument and you can get on with your life with a clear conscience:thumbsup:
#13
Cracking book and well worth a read.

Sure, his style can be a bit full on and he can sometimes be a bit in your face but that doesn't make this book any less important. People will either love him for what he is doing or hate him for the very same reason. But in a modern society, every viewpoint deserves to be given an equal amount of time. Anything less would be an invitation to close-mindedness.

I'm fairly sure I saw this in Tesco not long ago for the same price....and therefore without the P+P :)
#15
worship Xenu! :whistling:

The book maybe a bit tedious. you can get most of his discussions on youtube anyway, where its more of two way debate.
#16
Its only £4.99 on play.com, with free delivery.
#17
If you buy this book youre all going to hell - stop questioning things damn it, just blindly accept your religion and fight/blow up everyone until they come round to your way of thinking!

Seriously though, heres some good articles to see if youd like the book, generally theyre written in a similar style -

Nice spot sandman :)

I like it whenever a deal for Dawkins is posted, as you get blind zealots for both religions popping up (atheism is a religion, after all).

As someone mentioned, this is cheaper in Tescos and comes with no P&P.

You offer up your truth and your cult of atheism, so why should people believe you? Just becuase your cult has no god, does that mean your cult is telling the truth?

Bit of a lame arguement.

Fact is there is no argument for atheism, and there is an argument for God. Science always requires a cause for everything, and ultimately it must and it fails because it cannot ever deliver the ultimate cause of everything without resorting to a god figure, or resorting to the arguement "we don't know".

At the end of the day atheists choose to be atheists, not because of proof or evidence, becuase there is none.

Everyday proof though is a subjective thing. Some accept the arguements for God, others don't.

Whilst atheism nor theism can ever be proved in the philosophical sense, since nothing in the philosophical sense has ever been accepted as being proven, not even descartes "i think, therefore i am" proof statement is accepted. So to each his own belief. You have your dogma of atheism, and others have their belief system. So don't be so high and mighty and look down on others when your own belief system suffers from the exact same problem if not more of lacking "proof".

P.S. Compasses can get screwed by a magnetic or electrical force, metaphorically so can the moral compass. Hence why religious people deem the need of a book to help, as a written record of the truths to prevent corruption of knowledge. Just as science is written down in books to store the knowledge gained by one generation so that the next generation don't have to go through the same mistakes to find the same knowledge. Books have always been important as pillars to build upon greater things.

I think after reading dawkins book I found the argument about treating religion with "kid gloves" the most compelling.

A scientist who is proved wrong after dedicating 25 years of his life to a subject might applaud the person that proves him wrong, but with religion a similar situation where someone questions the theologians perspective is viewed as wrong perhaps even punishable. Bizarre how religion gets special treatment when there is no evidence to back it up, we simply accept it because someone says they "know it to be true" and thats supposed to be good enough to take as "fact" that it must be true.

You don't know much about scientists do you? they have never accepted their views as being wrong. Einstein was a joke for a long time in the scientific community, as were the wright brothers, edison, graham, bell, michael faraday, as were many scientists before and after them. best example is medicine were huge number of lives were and are still lost due to close mindedness. http://amasci.com/weird/vindac.html List of a few of the closed mindedness incidents of scientists.

And questioning religion has never been a punishable offence in the actual religion. It is rulers who care nothign for religion but care only for power who used to punish people who questioned their authority. Just as today when anyone questions the war against terror, they are thrown into prison, or how anyone questioned democracy they were thrown into prison in the cold war, or how anyone questioned communisn they were shot in USSR, just as anyone who questioned Hitler's aryan racial superiority theory was thrown into prison. Corrupt power hungry people will always use the dominant ideology of their era to control the masses, religion in this case is nothing more than their pawn, just as democracy, communism, racism, science, atheism, etc is.

Religion has in fact fought these people far more than atheism has ever done. Human rights is a product of religion, democracy is a product of religion, social revolution is a product of religion, etc. In a world of athiesm there is no arguement for human rights, might is right, as there is no basis for morals.
#25
So basically what your saying is an atheist is incapableof morality?? ****, maybe we should start reading the book then proceed to erradicate homosexuality (Kant, Satre, Bertrand Russell have extensively argued why you are wrong by the way)

Indeed, it seems that no mention was made of religion being the biggest single cause of human suffering in the world today.

I guess that is my ticket booked to a warm place.. ;-)

You telling me that if you were the creator and you advised the creation to ask from you, to worship you. etc.. And they disobeyed, ignored your existence and worshipped other dieties and worldly desires you would not punish them.. (as if you wouldn't!!)

Do you not tell your kids off when the don't listen to you, your pets etc..?

You go to Hell and you stay there for ever!!, You burn in Hell, and your skin will be replaced so you feel them burns again and again.

The fact there is a God is evident in his creation, the universe, the earth, humans, animals etc.. The complexity of the DNA strand, the eye, protein etc.

enough said, lock the thread.

Actually Darwinism is the cause. The survival of the fittest, the superiority of one race against another. What Hitler did to the Jews, what mussolini? did, what the israelis did to the palestinians, what america does to the rest of the world.
#30
Essential reading. Incredibly well written, and uttery compelling in my opinion. Personally, I love Dawkins.
#31
Right. Darwin created evolution and through that people decided that survival of the fittest was the way to go. Are you serious? So by that resasoning evolution would not have existed before Darwin and it was just his fruitful imagination!
