Alister Mcgrath rips into Dawkins:
He is a 'psychotic delinquent', invented by mad, deluded people. And that's one of Dawkins's milder criticisms.
Dawkins, Oxford University's Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, is on a crusade.
His salvo of outrage and ridicule is meant to rid the world of its greatest evil: religion. "If this book works as I intend," he says, "religious readers who open it will be atheists when they put it down." But he admits such a result is unlikely. "Dyed-in-the-wool faith-heads" (that's people who believe in God) are "immune to argument", he says.
I have known Dawkins for more than 20 years; we are both Oxford professors. I believe if anyone is "immune to argument" it is him. He comes across as a dogmatic, aggressive propagandist.
