Richard Dawkins' Delusions

"Dawkins ignores the possibility that God is a very different sort of being than brains and computers." A philosopher explains his claim that Dawkin's arguments are 'demonstrably faulty.' "I find Dawkins’ 'The God Delusion' stimulating, informative, and often right on target. But it does not make a strong case for atheism. His case is weak because it does not take adequate account of the philosophical discussions that have raised the level of reflection about God’s existence far above that at which he operates. It may be possible to make a decisive case against theism through a penetrating philosophical treatment of necessity, complexity, explanation, and other relevant concepts. Because his arguments fail to do this, Dawkins falls far short of establishing his claim."
