'Tis the season to read Dawkins

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

They say the customer is always right, so non-believers can take heart from a graphic currently appearing on Amazon which puts all-time sales figures for Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion up against those of staunch critic Alister McGrath's The Dawkins Delusion.

Dawkins is currently trouncing McGrath 90% to 10%, which can only be a good thing for the forces of rationalism. We've displayed the graph here as apparently it comes and goes on the Amazon site, at one point being replaced by "Kylie v Spice Girls". I wonder how Dawkins would fare against them?

[Many thanks to blog reader Matt Robinson for sending this in. Reader input is always appreciated – if you spot any amusing or relevant items on the web, do send them in via the address on our website]

I will happily read Dawkins, and then make him chow down on his words. . . if someone will send me some review copies of his books. I do not wish to subsidize his arrogant anti-religious intolerance and bigotry by buying any of his books. If anyone would like to send me any of Richard Dawkins' books, or indeed any other 'New Atheist' books, for Christmas I will make a point of reading them and pointing out the errors that they contain. Just email me at robinedgar59@yahoo.ca and I will provide my mailing address to you. Dog-eared used copies are most welcome.
