I finally put in a pre-order for my copy of “The Greatest Show on Earth.”
Now I won’t be as shunned by my godless friends. They were all threatening to use their copies as bats … to beat my head in if I didn’t buy a copy for myself.
It’s already been released in Europe. My photographer pal Pete already bought it, rubbed it in my face and (I think) has powerdrove through the sucker and enjoyed it.
I plan on passing my copy along after reading. Maybe I should buy multiple copies?
I also ordered a family pack of Snow Leopard and the FCP Upgrade (damn you Apple!). I really want one of those new iPod Nanos with a video camera. Must … resist … techgeek … satan … monster.
“Dawkins’ new book is very much a grenade thrown right at the heart of the creationists. The God Delusion was a kind of wake-up slap to shake people into attention, and now The Greatest Show on Earth follows on to pound them into the ground with a fusillade of evidence backed up by sound theoretical explanations. It’s all beautifully explained, too, a kind of elegant overview of the various lines of evidence supporting evolutionary theory, with much of the discussion informed by an awareness of the kinds of denial creationists typically make.”
So pre-order now or travel to Europe and get a copy.
