PREFACE: I am not a very good writer, so please bear with me. Thanks!
A little background on myself. I am a 20 year old Computer Science student from North Carolina. I was born and raised in the Assemblies of God church. My father is an Assemblies of God minister and a chaplain. Needless to say, I am a Christian. I attend church as much as my schoolwork and job permits and enjoy reading and studying the bible.
The great thing about coming to college is that you get exposed to many different religions and beliefs, from Islam to Atheism. I like to think of myself as a rather open individual and love talking to people about what they believe and why. Its because of that that Ive picked The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.
I want to be clear from the start that I believe that God exists and that I am not questioning my religious beliefs. I picked this book up because I am hoping to see what an Atheist thinks like, why he/she holds a belief that God does not exist. I understand that Richard Dawkins does not represent every atheist, but I have to start somewhere, right? I will try to keep a completely open mind when reading through the book and if I fail, I apologize ahead of time!
