Dawkins' book is very entertaining, not least because it is rather  
spectacularly naive, philosophically.  Like many scientists who  
become Big Thinkers, he does philosophy about as well as most  
philosophers do biology.    (02)

I haven't yet read Christopher Hitchens' "God is Not Great: How  
Religion Poisons Everything", but, whatever you think of his  
politics, he is exceptionally sharp and I suspect his book will be  
far more cogent than Dawkins' embarrassing polemic.    (03)
