First of all, I can say that the author managed to use logic as a basis for his atheistic stance, however, the very
core of any religion is not based on logic, as it only stems from faith. It's true that Richard tried to refute
the notion of blind faith in embracing religion, yet he is tackling a highly complicated subject through a stand point that only convinces the non-believer -so that in itself is a critical issue which must be taken into consideration.

Many of the arguments stated hold true and are worth being raised into questioning, including gender discrimination and immorality derived from scriptures.

Inasmuch as I find his views enlightening, I can definitely say that he failed to provide an acceptable basis for the believers and agnostics to follow suit atheism or convincing his readers that Darwinian and scientific points of view can provide sufficient answers for them. That is Darwin himself doubted that a human eye can be a result of natural selection, since it's very complex ...etc.

So if Dawkins wants to question the presence of God, he shall question the reason behind the presence of life and creatures?
Is it chance or is it possible that no answer can be given?
Will the human mind accept the fact that it can't find a plausible answer for a non-plausible question? Especially that ignorance about such facts seem to be too much irritating for the human race, thus, having and forming beliefs and answers would be easier for them to cope up with their involuntary deficiencies when it comes to reasoning.
