Back from Seattle
Hiyo. I've been in Seattle all week for a Microsoft summit. I finished The God Delusion on the flight there and nearly finished another related book before landing. I plan to write my own response to Dawkins' book tomorrow, but I would like to recommend The Dawkins Delusion to anyone who wants the perspective of a pro-religion molecular biophysicist and his neuropsychologist wife. I already had my own issues with Dawkins' treatment of God and religion, but the McGraths hit him from two perspectives he attempts to use in The God Delusion. Needless to say, it's a pretty devastating critique from people who supposedly share a common epistemology.
