Once again I find someone more articulate on this issue… albeit, it wasn’t hard.
I suppose it’s possible that a few ambivalent souls may pick up Dawkins’ book The God Delusion and see “the empirical light.” But just a few–and these folks were already predisposed for conversion. How do I know this? Because no self-respecting, god-fearing person would ever pick up a book that so openly condemned and ridiculed their belief system. Dawkins is so blatant in his scorn for religion, so unequivocal in denunciation of belief in all its forms, that he makes room for only two types of readers: the like-minded, and the masochistic.
