Richard Dawkins is Following Me

Well, not literally, but for some reason, everywhere I turned in airports or on airplanes this vacation, someone was reading "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins. I will admit, that given the general tenor of this blog, that book is not on my reading list. However, one person in the flight yeseterday was not only reading it, but giving her husband frequent updates on the thesis of the book.

One problem I find when speaking to nonbelievers is that they have a view of believers that is more Hollywood caricature than fact. They have n their mind an uneducated, small minded person who believes the world is flat. Then again, the same can probably be said of how believers view nonbelievers. Too often, believers have a caricatured view of immoral nonbelievers engaging in sex with animals in front of the neighbors' kids.

As with most everything else, the problem is communication.
