Of his forthcoming book Dawkins has said: "I plan to look at mythical accounts of various things and also the scientific account of the same thing. And the mythical account that I look at will be several different myths, of which the Judeo-Christian one will just be one of many.

"And the scientific one will be substantiated, but appeal to children to think for themselves; to look at the evidence. Always look at the evidence."

So Iswanason, I'm sure you will be reassured by this. Your favourite God myths will also be represented in Dawkins book. And surely you will not feel threatened by Dawkins's intention of encouraging children to look at the evidence and to 'think for themselves'.
