Comment 1 by mirandaceleste :

Is "The Magic of Reality" the consummate children's book about science? I'm hesitant to go that far, partly because Dawkins is so militant about going after Judeo-Christian beliefs.

"Militant" again? Sigh. To quote The Princess Bride:

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Chuckle! He is worse than "militant"!

He is "conversationally dismissive" (or something like that). He dismisses all sorts of myths as he leads the reader towards reality. And, worst of all, he doesn't single out "Judeo-Christian beliefs". He simply includes them along with all the other myths.

Not being singled out by Richard Dawkins must be a terrible fate for a religion!
