Richard Dawkins reviews WEIT

February 11, 2009 • 1:30 pm

Well, I have to admit that I’m thrilled (or “chuffed”, as the Brits say). Richard Dawkins has reviewed Why Evolution is True in the Times Literary Supplement (here), and it’s a rave (and long–ca. 3000 words). I didn’t expect Richard to do a review at all (he rarely reviews books), much less to like the book so much. It’s really nice. And, as a bonus, Richard characteristically gives a discussion of what “truth” is in science, and how it is distorted by creationists and relativists.

Richard has now posted his review on  his website, and the comments are accumulating.   Nice original drawings there of the “bee ball” I talk about on WEIT and an amusing rendition of “God’s balls,” one of the more amusing parts of Richard’s review.
