Orr gave as examples the way Dawkins repeated cited popular peers like Douglas Adams and Carl Sagan rather than more scholarly thinkers such as William James and Ludwig Wittgenstein.

Like Eagleton, Orr also objected to Dawkins' dismissal of theologians along with fundamentalists: [3] Having no patience with the faith of fundamentalists, he also tends to dismiss more sophisticated expressions of belief as sophistry he cannot, for instance, tolerate the meticulous reasoning of theologians. For example Plantinga disagrees with Dawkins' assumption that the Abrahamic God would have to be inherently complex to design the universe.

Apparently, an intelligent being that talks to humans counts as a simple hypothesis. When he addressed these issues, Plantinga also commented on the book's lack of philosophical engagement and finesse, describing Dawkins' "forays into philosophy" as "at best jejune", and liable to "receive a failing grade in a sophomore philosophy class".

Proudly he criticizes that whereof he knows nothing. It was intended as a popular-level book published by a mainstream outfit that people are actually intended to read.

Dawkins frequently refers people to other books that give more detailed coverage of the topics he was discussing. PZ Myers , also commenting on Orr's review, coined the term " Courtier's Reply " a reference to the Hans Christian Anderson story, "The Emperor's New Clothes" to describe arguments which focus on an opponent's ignorance of a topic, rather than focusing on what the opponent actually says or writes.

Commenting on his blog, Coyne sarcastically used the phrase "sophisticated theology" to describe Haught's arguments: [13] [Haught] lost the debate; his ideas were exposed for the mindless theological fluff that they were; and I used his words against him, showing that even "sophisticated" theology, when examined under the microscope of reason, is just a bunch of made-up stuff, tales told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Singularitarian and atheist blogger Luke Muehlhauser covered the subject in a blog addressing the Courtier's Reply and the related argument which he calls the "not my theology" reply. Dawkins speaks in The God Delusion of "sophisticated theologians", meaning: those who had read the Bible and put in the effort to make sense of it.

Report as inappropriate. Well written book that presents a lot of facts for why God is a delusion and we make ourselves better people, not God. It touches on theories of why society has created God and the purpose of religion. This is not a book for devout religious people, as they won't understand, but for anyone questioning their faith in a religion, this is a great book to help understand that you are not a horrible person.

A great read for anyone questioning the religious aspects of their upbringing, or for anyone interested in why religious people believe what they do. This well-researched book provides a great overview of the nonsense and adversary effects of religion and belief.

Each chapter deals with a topic, delving deep into questions like: Is faith necessary to be moral? Is there a god? Is religion good or bad? Can children be religious?

Dawkings provides ample reasoning from theologists, fanatics, fundamentalists, and atheists, and let you make the decision. Faith might be a lot more evil than you think, as clearly demonstrated from one of the many quotes from believers.

Pijl on March 9, Finally the whole truth an answers to our many questions about religion. It is a must read that will liberated you and will make you enter the year The best book on religous thinking in modern times. Chapter by chapter all systems of religion are obliterated. I do not think anyone who reads this with an open mind can honestly remain a believer in a God. I am a confirmed "Tooth fairy agnostic"!
