Deus, um Delírio by Richard Dawkins

By Richard Dawkins

Num pace de guerras e ataques terroristas com motivações religiosas, o movimento pró-ateísmo ganha força no mundo todo. E seu líder é o respeitado biólogo Richard Dawkins, eleito recentemente um dos três intelectuais mais importantes do mundo (junto com Umberto Eco e Noam Chomsky) pela revista inglesa Prospect. Autor de vários clássicos nas áreas de ciência e filosofia, ele sempre atestou a irracionalidade de acreditar em Deus e os terríveis danos que a crença já causou à sociedade. Agora, neste "Deus, um Delírio", seu intelecto afiado se concentra exclusivamente no assunto e mostra como a religião alimenta a guerra, fomenta o fanatismo e doutrina as crianças. O objetivo primary deste texto mordaz é provocar: provocar os religiosos convictos, mas principalmente provocar os que são religiosos "por inércia", levando-os a pensar racionalmente e trocar sua "crença" pelo "orgulho ateu" e pela ciência. Dawkins despreza a idéia de que a religião mereça respeito especial, mesmo se moderada, e compara a educação religiosa de crianças ao abuso infantil. Para ele, falar de "criança católica" ou "criança muçulmana" é como falar de "criança neoliberal" - não faz sentido. O biólogo united states seu conceito de memes (idéias que agem como os genes) e o darwinismo para propor explicações à tendência da humanidade de acreditar num ser more desirable. E desmonta um a um, com base na teoria das probabilidades, os argumentos que defendem a existência de Deus (ou Alá, ou qualquer tipo de ente sobrenatural), dedicando especial atenção ao "design inteligente", tentativa criacionista de harmonizar ciência e religião.
