The God Delusion

Quotes from the book by Richard Dawkins:

p. 34: From Thomas Jefferson: "Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions."

(Love the humor!)

p. 126: "One of the truly bad effects of religion is that it teaches us that it is a virtue to be satisfed with NOT understanding."

p. 187: "Irrationally strong conviction is a guard against fickleness of mind."

Books I want to read:

Unweaving the Rainbow - Dawkins
Why Good is Good - Hinde
Science of Good & Evil - Shermer
Moral Minds - Hauser
The Sins of Scripture - Spong
Godless: How and Evangelical Preacher Became One of America's Leading Atheists - Barker
Why I Became an Atheist - Loftus
