Religeon is not great

I find nothing in this book that refutes a creative force apart from Hitchin's opinion, which is in contrast to many big-name scientists, Einstein, Hoyle and many others. Disarming man-made ideas, stories, traditions, and odd customs created billions of years post-big-bang as no bearing on whether the universe was created or random chance, something even Richard Dawkins is not so Naive to believe.
