The God Delusion?

Over the last several days, I have been listening to (on CD), "The God Delusion", written by the world famous atheist Richard Dawkins. At the beginning of the book, he boldly sets forth his agenda of trying to convince the reader or my case the listener that atheism is superior to a belief in the Trinitarian God. He even goes so-far-as-to-say that belief in a Christian God is detrimental for society and for the individual. Christians have for centuries "deluded" themselves into believing that there is a God. They have made Him up to make themselves feel better. There is so much that can be said in opposition to the arguments that he makes in the book. However, I will only say this. When Richard Dawkins is at his death bed and thinks back over his life and when he ponders what lies beyond the grave, I pity him. His philosophy sounds so "rational." "God can't be proven, so therefore he doesn't exist," he would say. But, when all is said and done and when he is faced with his own mortality, I wonder if he will be so sure of himself and his atheism. I think not! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
