Brilliant way to explain evolution, the only thing that makes sense! :)

Thunders, JJ et al.

If you are so inclined, I highly recommend that you read his book The Selfish Gene. It is academically oriented, exceptionally well written and has lots of supporting science and examples. You may find his book The Blind Watchmaker to be more accessible – it is equally as compelling and well written. His more recent book, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution seems to be for a lay audience. Same quality of argument and prose. Lastly, because JJ has echoed such sentiments, I highly recommend his book The God Delusion. As a biologist and an empiricist and a scientist he has little time or patience for organized religion. Nuff said.

#2 Austin I've read all of Dawkins books, some of them several times. I've also watched pretty much every You-tube video that includes him and the late great brilliant speaker Christopher Hitchens and would highly recommend any of his books especially 'God Is Not Great'.

#3. Judge-Jake - excellent! Hitch was also a brilliant writer and yes, fully agree on 'God Is Not Great'. Have you read his anthology 'The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Non-Believer'? Also, quite good. Or seen many of Hitch's debates with religious leaders? Hitch came from a background of thought, reasoned discourse, reading, and debate. Brilliant man. Not without faults and gross mistakes, for example his unwavering support of the 2nd Iraq invasion IMHO, but he was a genuine man of letters. And sadly missed.

#4 Like Dawkins I have read pretty much everything Christopher wrote, I love his Hitch slaps and watch him most days, even the repeats. Such an amazing speaker and such an awful loss to the world, Sam Harris is probably the nearest replacement but Christopher was such a cool educated man. I am always impressed by anyone who can remember such detail and bring it to debate. You really needed to know your subject if debating with Christopher, as he knew far more about your religion than you did and you better have depth in your question when facing the Hitch.

I tried to explain to you a few weeks ago how impressed I was with your comments as you take the time and trouble to go into great detail with accurate facts when commenting on this site. Sadly I do not have that ability, I wish I did, my brain is not wired up in the most efficient manor for remembering detail, and I have to check and recheck stats before I put them to paper or screen, plus I'm getting on a bit lol.

The movie "The Atheists Delusion" sure made a lot of sense to me. Especially the DNA part...
