The God Delusion

Author: Richard Dawkins

Genre: Philosophy, Religion, Atheism

The concept of God has always intrigued me. Born to a religious mother and an atheist father, I had always struggled to define my own belief. I loved the serenity of prayers and the togetherness of religious rituals, but found the notion of an actual superhuman God rather unscientific. It appeared childish to believe in a bearded figure in the sky, who created us in a far flung planet in a far flung galaxy, and who twisted the laws of the universe to selectively answer prayers.
