Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution


Richard Dawkins transformed our view of God in his blockbuster, The God Delusion, which sold more than 2 million copies in English alone.

Questions from a young Christian questioning his faith, and atheism(r/atheism)

Because while it sometimes takes years for people to realize that the god they’ve been talking to is nothing but a voice in their heads, the Theory of Evolution is, by comparison, a no-brainer. We can easily bury you under mountains of evidence so deep that you can’t be a sane, rational person and, after honest perusal, still believe that the ToE is a lie.

This understanding will bring you to the realization that your father is wrong about something. That may ease the next step, wherein you consider if your father and you may have been wrong about something else too. Well, one step at a time!

I wish you the best of success in finding the truth. And I mean that with all sincerity.
