Gareth82, June 19, 2007 (view all comments by Gareth82)
I'd consider this book to be as unscientific as any I've read. The illogical leaps leave you fuming, the self congratulatory language is irritating. I found myself glancing at the portrait on the back cover to see if i could guage whether the man was in fact delusional. I could not guess from his appearance.

I'm surprised he didn't realise that if high school level statistics and ridiculous kindergarten experiments could have disproved the current scuentific consensus on Evolution then someone would've realised it long ago.

In short I wish he had spent less time on his own personal delusions and more on thoroughly researched evidence. The book borders on being merely a 'god exists because god told me he exists' book.

Speaking about delusions, I'd recommend Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion If you're interested in this subject (although he argues rather from the other end of the spectrum)
