← Richard Dawkins' watchmaker still has the power to open our eyes

I am so glad to see an article like this in the press. There should be more of them in this vein. Whilst The God Delusion is an important book and an always welcome addition to the secular canon, keeping good company with Harris, Hitchens, Dennett et al, it is his beautifully written books embracing the consciousness raising power of evolutionary biology that have impressed me most. I am still astonished at the poise, patience and deliberation given to his arguments and explanations through a myriad of metaphor. Ultimately leaving the reader with a sense of an unravelling in the mind of the skeins and knots that are there ever present when presented with life's complexity, one cannot be humbled, and yet elevated at the same time. Long may he continue to write, and in the most beautiful of ways, blow our heads off.
