    We can use the classroom at MTSU again if there are no other options.

    And less likely to drop food on a signed first edition :)

    Although now that I think about it, a home would probably be good so he can sleep in a quiet room and I don't have to leave early if he gets fussy :)

    Our next book selection is: The God Delusion, by Richard Dawkins.

    Here are the questions we'll use for discussion:

    Does religion by necessity hinder scientific inquiry?

    How much does the concept of Natural Selection play into your beliefs about God?

    What gaps in knowledge, scientific or philosophical, are still troublesome for you?

    “In order to design the universe, a God would have to be very complex. Such a complex entity would have to have evolved gradually as well.” How would a religious person treat this reasoning?

    Based on the probability of life evolving spontaneously, do you think it likely that there is other life out there in the universe?

    How big a role does indoctrination as children play in development, religious or otherwise?

    Do you ever find yourself doubting your beliefs?

    What, if not religion, gives meaning to your life?

    Location to be announced. Add a comment if you need help getting a copy of the book, or if you have any questions.
