For only a few more days the podcast of Richard Dawkins reading from his book is up at the ABC website. I listened to this when it was first broadcast, and while it didn’t change my mind about Dawkins and his enterprise regarding religion and though he didn’t really discus the issues in a way that I found very enlightening, I did enjoy it. Those who are raving atheists can enjoy it and if you’re a believer – well you’ll have to suspend belief and then you might enjoy it too.
I think believing Jews would enjoy it most of all – what with their litany of issues they want to raise with their implacable and irascible God. As Woody Allen said, it’s not so much that God doesn’t exist, it’s that he’s a major underachiever!
