I've read Dawkins' The God Delusion. Although I agree with Alister McGrath's extended critique of the book (The Dawkins Delusion?), my objection to Dawkins' argument can be boiled down to one sentence: You have not made the case that there are any grounds to care, to be moral, to be rational, or to press "forward" (whatever that is) in the absence of the God Who speaks to your conscience and Who displays God's glorious handiwork in all of the universe's magnificent 11-dimensional beauty. Or to put it more briefly, for you, why does matter matter if that's all there is? Why does anything matter?
