Dawkins, Richard. The God Delusion. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 2006.

Richard Dawkings, eminente biólogo e divulgador científico, aclamado autor de obras como “O Relojoeiro Cego” e “O Gene Egoísta”, só para citar as mais conhecidas, quase consegue provar-nos com este seu último livro a não existência de Deus. E se digo quase, tal deve-se apenas a uma impossibilidade factual (no actual estado da ciência, segundo o autor).


« A preeminent scientist — and the world’s most prominent atheist — asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11.


With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. 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, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe’s wonders than any faith could ever muster.»
