I found this review interesting, I believe its written by an atheist or at least an agnostic, (I claim this from the website title and the claims made), however he / she does point out Dawkins' fallacies, ,which I give kudos for, since its hard for many people to be critical of someone supporting their own view. (Good show of intellectual honesty)

Whilst I wouldn't agree with everything stated, chapter 4 got a slap in the face which is all good in my books Posted Image

The cosmologist, Fred Hoyle, once said that the probability that life originated on Earth is no greater than the chance that a hurricane, sweeping through a scrapyard, would have the luck to assemble a Boeing 747.

This is a common argument that creationists use against evolution. As Dawkins points out, it demonstrates their complete lack of understanding of the power of natural selection to shape things.


Lol! How can a process be used to explain how a hurricane could assemble a 747, when the process itself is part of the 747???

Yes very astute, how did the mechanism of evolution "evolve" :P
