Loved them both. Especially the second one..... *waits for hate comments*

What?

Aside from the fact that Dawkins is a demagogue...

Let's assume he's a proper intellectual and his arguments against the existence of God are strong...

If you "love" that book, does that not mean you no longer believe in God? It makes no sense to "love" a treatise on atheism. You could say it was interesting or that it is worth reading for the sake of becoming familiar with a different point of view... but to say that you "loved" it?? I don't even know what to say. You are beginning to enter Al-Afasy / S.hassan / haidar_al_karrar territory, where it is not even worth it to gauge what you are thinking...

If I read a book by Salman Rushdie, does that make me an apostate?

I mean really? Could you have made any more of an ignorant generalisation?

I disagree fully with his core beliefs, however I did agree with many points that he made in the documentary. It does not necessarily mean that I'm inclined towards Atheism just because I may have expressed a love for the film. You can't approach religion half-minded baradar. You and I may hate on atheists all we want, but in the end - he does provide an insight of perspectives, some valid and invalid, which for me, have actually strengthened my beliefs as a Muslim (not an atheist, baradaram!) So relax, I haven't deviated to the dark side.

Right. Loving the documentary makes me an atheist, you said? *sniff*

I don't know what definition of "love" you are going by, but to me -- and I presume, to most of the world -- if you love a documentary, it means the message resonated with you in a very personal way.

Take, for example, the video I posted above. That Zizek documentary. A lot of it resonated with me. I agreed with most of what Zizek said in that documentary. But I would not say I freggin "loved" it, because that implies something more.

And this is even disregarding, remember, that Dawkins is not an academic; it is disregarding that he uses very weak, childish arguments. (Dawkins is no David Hume, that's for damn sure). That's why many non-religious or even anti-religious people are turned off by him; outside of his cult following, he is not really taken all that seriously.

It's like me saying "I love Yasser al-Habib's lectures," and then claiming that I do NOT like to hear grotesque descriptions of you-know-what. That's all Yasser Habib talks about; I can't love his lectures without loving that other thing.

People should watch Miyazaki first.
