Selected and introduced by Richard Dawkins, The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing is a celebration of the finest writing by scientists for a wider audience - revealing that many of the best scientists have displayed as much imagination and skill with the pen as they have in the laboratory.This is a rich and vibrant collection that captures the poetry and excitement of communicating scientific understanding and scientific effort from 1900 to the present day. Professor Dawkins has included writing from a diverse range of scientists, some of whom need no introduction, and some of whoseworks have become modern classics, while others may be less familiar - but all convey the passion of great scientists writing about their science.

To "buckwild" et al, to learn the real reason from Richard Dawkins, see . . . "Why I won't debate creationists" see: . . .

Anthony Flew was failing when he said he had moved from atheism to deism, influenced by Einstein's ideas. Flew insisted his deism did not involve the God envisioned by religion.
There is no such thing as 'creation science', only the thoroughly debunked Creationism. Dawkins is an excellent scientist and communicator, to state "he is selling you a lie" is also incorrect. 'buckwild' is a Creationist.

To all you seekers of truth. I have a few suggestions for you. Anything by Henry Morris also, I love to watch debates with kent Hovind. Dawkins feared Hovind. Also look into creation science. Search and research and you will find that Dawkins is not telling you science but he is selling you a lie. Anthony flew is an atheist turned creationist and should be read. Happy searching!!!
