In this lecture, Dawkins contends that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that belief in a personal god qualifies as a delusion, which he defines as a persistent false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence. He is sympathetic to Robert Pirsig’s statement that when one person suffers from a delusion it is called “insanity.”  When many people suffer from a delusion it is called “religion.”

16 comments to Richard Dawkins: The God Delusion (Full Lecture)

  • We just have no concept of what the word “exists” means and its presumed restrictions as it relates to the reality illusion. I am forced to conclude, that “that” which “men call God” does not exist in the personal illusion that Mr. Dawkins calls “his reality”. Whether I believe his confusion is not his problem. It is mine. It is true. God does not “exist”. God is “that” which provides the means and consciousness such that we exist. The small size of the consciousness cage, some men dwell within, can be likened to a black hole singularity…

  • What will it be like?
    You can know exactly what it will be like by carefully studying the horrific
    pictures of the Tsunami in Japan, the various wars all over the world,
    in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia,
    and of course Libya and Syria
    Transfer those images to exactly where you live, nowhere else.
    Transfer the images of the Depleted Uranium babies,
    those devastated by Agent Orange, White Phosphorous,
    and fragmentation bombs, the toxic vaccines, and the many other horrors,
    to you, your family, and your neighborhood.
    Hell is not only a place for the future.
    We have caused many people to live in hell.
    Do not believe the lying media.
    The days of military victories for the Biblical Israelite countries,
    (U.S.A., U.K., France, Australia, Canada, Scandinavia, Talmudic Israel, NATO, etc
    Hell is going to visit us, right where we live.

    I’ve often said that Atheism is a religion of unbelief in God while exalting man as a god. Thanks for making my point.

    Dawkins is sure that no one knows for sure that there is a God – so if no one knows for sure then Dawkins himself doesn’t know for sure. What an idiot.

    tsk, tsk.

    This debate is a logical fallacy, but He cant, answer a simple question in regad of science, the origin of matter and what made the metamorphosis possible from absolutly Nothing to anything, aka matter.
    Is there a force, information cal it what you like god is equally good/bad as anything else, but the Atheists and the followers of this Dawkins, have the ball on their side now.
    Why is God in this all the time, to me, its about levels of information processing, thats it.
    Fractals runns the rest.

    The second is the term God, and I have waded thure heeps of debates and I am stunned by the lack of perseptions regading the difference and what instigates this, god delution, its basicly a miss consept between whats been learned in schools and in religious entetys, where the God is a bearded male on a thone, like santa claus.
    To take the God iisue further is pointless, since the missconseptions are in the very core of this debate, and the falacys of Evolution teached to day is even bigger, than they will admitt.
    I can atleast stretch my self to acept the Word Evolution, since its about Processing Info, and correct the structure acordingly, varying from a rock to birds. And Biosentrism is a new one, if you are not familiare with it, then read about it.

    No, If yoy are going to have a debate, start with the Bigg bang drivel, and the atheists are equally “religious” since they to have bulided their Belife in missconspetions to.
    Flawed science used to explain or pove flawed theorys.
    Like the redshift, the sole fundament of the Biggbang drivel.

    No, I havent read anything convinsing, and specaly this Dawkins fellows moronic and ilogical rants, with I find simply uninteressed to debate, because, the level of knowledge is to low, and is basicly a waist of time and effort to even try to explain the massive difference between Nothing, to present life made of matter.
    And even wurse, consciousness.

    No, when even the asumptions are flawed, the science is flawed, the debate is ridicilous, why bother.
    I rather smoke a joint and go outside and talk to the birds.
    I find animals to be far more intellectually giving than babbeling with moronic science and their “freinds”.

    Forgetting what GOD is. Forgetting what history is. Someone on this site just wrote a book explaining it all.

    God delusion are same people that can’t explain creation of the Universe or anything. There few different groups, there are the Religious, there is no God group, and those who believe in evolution group.

    Still there is a spirit a consciousness and an organized Universe alive from the smallest microbe to the largest Galaxy.

    The theory of biological evolution falsified the creation account of the Bible NOT the existence of God. The highly contrived nature of the universe as expressed by the Anthropic Principle outflanks biology, and potentially restores the role of mind in creation. Dawkins should know this, and thus pushes false propaganda in the name of science.

  • Conversely, one could suffer from the Dawkins Delusion, that is, ignoring the perfection of the universe and it’s obvious creation in favor of elevating geeky scientists to godhood.

    I think there exists an entity that many would call “God” that is responsible for the human and animal population on Earth but I don’t believe he is what the religions claim him to be. I think mankind is a genetically engineered product that was brought to this planet as test subjects for their experiment which would explain the constant observations of the human populations and abductions that happen on a regular basis across the planet.
