Title Book Review: How Not to Be an Atheist, The God Delusion
 
Creator Dunne, Michael
 
Subject Philosophy
 
Description Anyone who attempts to write on one of the three 'great questions', namely, God, the Universe and Humankind, should remind themselves of the limits of such an endeavour by passing many small pieces of paper around the house with the words 'I dont know' written on them, especially if one is going to have the bravery or audacity to write on all three. Philosophers are perhaps a bit better than scientists in using (or having to use) these few small words since we are aware of the ghost of Socrates at our elbows. So it is that while the author of The God Delusion may spend much of his time reminding others of their ignorance, he unfortunately forgets his own in particular and that of science in general.
