    I read "The Blind Watchmaker" by Dawkins a while back and enjoyed it....

    I am definately going to buy it, although I shall be waiting until it comes out in paper-back, and not because im a scrooge; I just dont like carrying hardbacks around with me on the tram to work.
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    I read the chapters on morality and then loaned it to a friend. It's pretty interesting in that it introduces moral Zeitgeist and the 'middle-world', both concepts that are pretty useful in a discussion methinks.

    I just finished this book.

    Dawkins has a witty style of writing and I would think the book could make even a theist laugh at times. He seems sincere, and he warned from the start that he would not tread lightly where the discussion of religion takes place. (Indeed, I get the strong impression that he has a disdain for the 'automatic respect' that is garnered for religion.)

    Anyway, this book was rather entertaining for me. I think Dawkins brings up some good points. I would recommend it for anyone that has thought about reading.

    Cheers
