I purchased "The god delusion" maybe 2 years ago and read it and fell in love with it. Its funny, and I enjoy Dawkins writing style.
But My favourite part of the book is where he quotes Gaskings reconstructed "proof of goods non existence" by W. Grey:
1.The creation of the world is the most marvelous achievement imaginable.
2.The merit of an achievement is the product of (a) its intrinsic quality, and (b) the ability of its creator.
3.The greater the disability, or handicap, of the creator, the more impressive the achievement.
4.The most formidable handicap for a creator would be non-existence.
5.Therefor if we suppose that the universe is the product of an existent creator we can conceive a greater being namely, one who created everything while not existing.
6.An existing God therefore would not be a being greater than which a greater cannot be conceived because an even more formidable and incredible creator would be a God which did not exist.
7. God doesn't exist
I have looked on a few forums, one being bible.org and its very funny seeing them attempt to tear the argument apart, esp, when it was meant to be an ironic parody of Anselms ontological argument
and even directly after he says "Gasking didn't prove that god doesn't exist
If you have yet to read this book its a great read, i plan to re read after i finish the list that i have going so far ;)
