This is Richard Dawkins talking about his book "The God Delusion." Unfortunately most of the people who asked questions are idiots with questions akin to "Well if God didn't create the universe then WHO did?!?!"

His main atheism book: http://books.google.com/books?id=c5jjGQAACAAJ&dq=god+delusion

I’ve not read much of his work, but I have looked at his book, “The Selfish Gene,” and strongly suggest it to anyone here. Richard Dawkins is a bloody genius.

Yeah, Dawkins’ is really immature at times, but he’s extremely sharp none the less. He’s an excellent writer, and I intend to make a point out of researching his stuff.

So after two days i finally got the time to sit down relax and watch these videos. I wish to comment on how everything i wish to say has already been said by you guys. So i'll skip my "omg what a genius" and go for what i was thinking as i was watching the videos.

When will American's learn not to try to word-fence with a intelligent british man? I've seen it a hundred times over and over again, and this just proves what i've always thought.

America's vocabulary is fucking terrible. I'm surprised one of the church-goers didn't get up and say, "You don't believe in god? That's so gay."

I've tried to read The God Delusion. Maybe the translation just was really awful, but it seemed to me that this man can't write. I understand that it's an informative book, not meant to be fun reading. But wow, he's not making himself clear at all!

Probably it's just the translation. Most books that get translated from english lose their appeal. (When I read the original english version, most books turn out to be amazingly well-written. But the translation, although it had the same story, was really boring to read). But I don't think reading this book in english will work out for me. My english isn't that great.
