The God Delusion #42: Dawkins's "Pseudointellectual Drivel"

Alister McGrath, in DD, shows how Dawkins consistently misrepresents religion. One example is Dawkins's idea that "religion leads to violence and is antiscience." (DD, 51)

McGrath writes: "As one senior atheist scientific colleague at Oxford said to me [commenting on Dawkins's TV series "The Root of All Evil?], 'Don't judge the rest of us by this pseudointellectual drivel." (DD, 51)
