Default All religious people are delusional.

Delusion = false belief: a persistent false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence, especially as a symptom of a psychiatric condition

All god believing people are delusional. What do you delusional people have to say about that? I'm sure that Richard Dawkins is smarter then your are. Read The God Delusion. And ArmsMerchant this is on topic! This thread does not exist just to bash religion!

There is a range of normality and normal religious belief is generally considered to fit within it because it doesn't warrant a diagnosis of any psychotic disorder when a patient doesn't present with other positive symptoms.

Appealing to authority. You don't know that your reader necessarily has a lower IQ than Dawkins, and even if they did it wouldn't make them correct.

To prove a belief is false, you must disprove it. To disprove something you must prove something. Which, when it comes to deities, you simply cannot. At least not in the current model.

Exactly just because Charles Manson has a high IQ and believes in God doesn't make him right. You are delusional if you believe in something with zero evidence.

Richard Dawkins is a god! Read The God Delusion and let me know what you think about it.

Richard Dawkins and I disbelieve in the same God--the outmoded, petty, and inhumane deity in the Old Testament, an artifact of the Piscean Age.

My God--and the God of millions of others--is not a body or entity, is not some invisible friend in the sky, or Santa Claus on steroids, but the spark of divinty whcih resides within us all, which create and sustains everything, and links everything together.

His book is a classic example of the straw man fallacy.

No, it's not.

The vast majority of the world does not believe in your god. They believe in the Judeo-Christian god; the personal, answers prayers, and follows the teachings of the bible or Koran kind.

If you had read it before dismissing it, you'd know he addresses other types of god, but is concentrating on this particular conception. How is it a strawman to write a book where you acknowledge the existence of other conceptions of god, but focus primarily on one? It isn't.

Default Re: All religious people are delusional.

As I have said before, Dawkins wirites about organized religon, for which I have little use, and says nothing about spirituality..

I have even less use, however, for stridant militant atheist ideologues.

As far as the conception of God goes, my view is shared by followers of CWG, ACIM, Deepak Chopra, Spinoza, the Urantia Book, Wayne Dyer, Gary Zukav, John Wheeler (a physicist who was a colleague of Einsteins), a shitload of other quantum physicists, Tony Roberts--I could go on and on.

Neat. Good for you. None of this changes your bullshit allegation.

There is nothing fallacious about writing a book with a target audience in mind. He wrote that book with the American Christians in mind. He does not claim that other conceptions of god don't exist. He acknowledges that, and even talks about those gods. He just concentrates on the Judeo-Christian interpretation of god because that's his target audience.

Who are still a tiny minority of people when compared to the rest of the world. Dawkins was talking to the majority, not your minority.
