Reflections of a working writer and reader

 

 

god stuff

This is old news having a new outing:

‘The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.’

Richard Dawkins

The whole story is on Spiegal Online International.

    My goodness Dawkins is everywhere! This is the 4th reference I’ve seen to him this week.
