The menu of writings penned by critics of Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion offers a diet unusually high in saturated fatuity. But this fawning review of John Cornwell's Darwin's Angel (a book that attempts to rebut Dawkins' The God Delusion), by one Salley Vickers, might just take the cake.
Since Vickers' dish contains far too much pudding to digest in a single sitting, I'll simply quote her final sentence:
Those who think that not knowing is safer and more attractive than its opposite should treat themselves to this elegant little book.
Yes, I suppose that's so.
