The Dawkins Letters: Challenging Atheist Myths

 I'm thoroughly enjoying David Robertson's The Dawkins Letters: Challenging Atheist Myths.  This book is a chapter-by-chapter response to Richard Dawkins' well known title, The God Delusion.  I'll come back and write more on this later; for now, I want to point out the great counter argument Robertson gives to Dawkins' Darwinian explanation of morality.
