I know this sounds harsh, but i think that Islam is incomputable with western democracy, and that is why I don't want Turkey to be part of the European Union, EVER.

This show should have a warning just before it's broadcast,saying, There are scenes in this show that some viewers may find offensive to reason, and may also ruin your children's intelligence.

Why are Americans much more likely to do that sort of thing?
Because they don't listen to enough Zappa.

Could this be the start of one these, kill those who insult Islam protests.
I hope not.
These things often start off small, and the build to a mass freak fest,and the next thing you know, you have book shops pulling books because of nutters threatening to kill the people who sell them.
Just look at what happened over the Mohammad cartoons.
If the Turks think TGD is bad, just wait until they cast their beady eyes over, god is not great.

The Extended Phenotype is also a brilliant book but I think probably the hardest read due to the technical jargon.Reading the other books first helped because he touches on the subject in some of them.

I think all of Dawkins books are great,I first started reading RD books about ten years ago when i read the selfish gene and i haven't looked back.I think this book made a bigger impact on me than any other book,after I finished reading it i read it again such was my amazement of this new way of thinking .Since then I have read all His books and enjoyed every one of them.I also think the Ancestors Tale is a wonderful book and also a good reference book.

Check this out.I Don't always agree With Chris Hitchens' but when he talks about religion he is bang on the money(or should I say,he reflects my views exactly).

It's sad that a country like the UK after trying so hard to break down centuries of religious indoctrination,we give free reign to these nut cases to open single faith schools to teach kids how to become intolerant bigots and convince them it's a virtue.
