Click on the title to read an interesting response to Dawkins' book "The God Delusion". It is a very well written response by Alvin Plantinga (professor of philosophy of religion at Notre Dame). This article helped me put into the words the absolute disgust I had at the book.
Let me know what you all think!
On another note. Today Nathaniel and I were looking at one of his coloring books. It is a big Bible coloring book (kind of graphic in places...sheep on the altar, etc.) and it covers many of the major stories in the Bible. I noticed in the story of the Flood that in the picture with the animals and people drowning (I told you it was graphic!) there was a wooly mammoth in the background. I immediately scoured the rest of the picture to see if there were any dinosaurs pictured, fearing that I was in the possession of some ultra conservative, young-earth, dinosaurs and men existed at the same time, kind of coloring book.
My mind is at ease, only a wooly mammoth who is in obvious anguish along with a man desperately clinging to a rock. I certainly don't want my kid learning bad theology! Violence, yes, but bad theology, I shudder at the thought!
