Dawkins Defends Himself

I just watched "The Root of All Evil?" last night. This is Richard Dawkins television documentary version of his book "The God Delusion." On the special features disc, Dawkins reads the preface to the paperback edition of his book, which was new to me because I only ever it in hardback. The entire preface is devoted to answering criticisms, most of which were pretty weak.

Dawkins says that the worst criticisms his book received began with the words, "I'm an atheist but..." I'm sure James Wood never read this preface, or saw the documentary. I'm also sure if he does either any time soon he's going to be pretty embarrassed.
