O’Leary gets mail: Must an atheist be a fool for Dawkins?

A friend writes to say that he has a “very anti-Christian friend” who seems to have gotten herself high on “evolution” (= a fool for Dawkins). She wanted to know if any of my books would help. I recommended this one and this one, but ended by saying

Re evolution: Do reassure your friend that it is okay to be an atheist and doubt current accounts of evolution. Many now do.

Reviewing current accounts of evolution is like watching sausages get made, and hearing the details spelled out. It could throw you off meat altogether or else cause you to be much more selective in what you consume.
