Just finished reading Richard Dawkin's God Delusion (took me over a month to read the whole book). Great book really makes you think. I'm now reading Fahrenheit 412. Montag is the man.

Would it be worth reading if one already knows that atheism is the only thing that makes sense?

Or is it just if you're on the fence.

I'm on his sequel, The Hod Delusion. He tries to prove there's no such things as bricks.

It's very unpopular with the building trade.

Well if you are an atheist already I would say the book is an amazing collection of ammunition against someone who was not an atheist.
But it's predominantly for us fence sitters.

Laughing out loud I love in the Hitchhiker's Guide when the philosophers try to block the scientiests from finding the meaning of life. Their reasoning and demands are hilarious.

I'm currently reading a technical manual entitled 'How to install hidden cameras in pretty girls bedrooms'. Oh sod it. I'll just drill a hole in the wall.

That was a cool edit 'cos nobody noticed Cool (Is that right by the way? Is it? Is it?)

Is it not about the ex-England manager and his theories on existence?
