The Dawkins DELUSION?
Yet the fact that Dawkins has penned a four-hundred-page
book declaring that God is a delusion is itself highly significant.
Why is such a book still necessary? Religion was meant to have disappeared
years ago. For more than a century, leading sociologists,
anthropologists and psychologists have declared that their children
would see the dawn of a new era in which the "God delusion"
would be left behind for good. Back in the 1960s, we were told
that religion was fading away, to be replaced by a secular world.
