The IPod Tutor: The Argument Against Richard Dawkins' the God Delusion

Передня обкладинка
Richard Dawkins is the noted biologist who has held the Charles Simonyi Chair for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University. His book, The God Delusion, appears to the untrained eye to be a devastating attack on theism as well as an ironclad defense of atheism. But not everything is as it seems. This audio tutor (designed for owners of the iPod and similar MP3 players) consisting of a User Guide and over 200 companion audio tracks, carefully dissects Dawkins's argument and exposes its numerous logical fallacies and factual errors, and demonstrates that Dawkins' primary argument is itself a faith-based construction. Those interested in improving their ability to think critically will find reading Dawkins' book along with this audio companion an essential intellectual exercise! Note -- to use this learning program, you must have all of the following:
- A copy of The God Delusion, and
- An iPod (or other MP3 player), and
- A broadband connection (to download the MP3 files). A Project of The Intelligent Community Initiative.
