    Deepak Chopra s new book, The Future of God A Practical Approach to Spirituality in Our Times, is a very poor book for a number of reasons I want to enumerate those reasons, but first let me tell you about another book, a very fine one, Karen Armstrong s The Case for God Knopf, 2009, 406 pp A scholar of comparative religion, Armstrong writes that virtually all world religions have historically depended on a foundation of silence, or what she calls unknowing This is the silence through which one gets intimations of the Divine, and it is based on sacred teachings.Armstrong says that there never was a presumption on the part of early theists that they could grasp God God was beyond human comprehension Since direct knowledge was not possible the only alternative was what she calls kenosis Greek self emptying This technique leads one toward the necessary quiet contemplation of God So religion was not in its early days about belief at all No one was expected to believe in God In fact, the idea of belief as we know it today did not even exist then, almost two millenia ago That happened when the scientific revolution came along The scientific method taught that facts were either right or wrong Either you could repeat the experiment, or you could not.Gradually there was a shift from kenosis, from the gentle act of self emptying for purposes of contemplation of God in silence, to one which began to seek scientific proofs for God s existence For instance, it was at first thought that the incredible detail revealed by microscopes was a sign of the Divine William Paley, an English clergyman, wrote about this in his Natural Theology.Then two things happened that threw this new approach to knowing God on its ear First were advances in geology Geology showed that the earth was not created in six days, as stated in Genesis rather it pointed to time spans hundreds of millions of years almost beyond human comprehension Then came evolution Darwin showed us that homo sapiens and his fellows were not created all at one time and set down on the planet in their current form Evolution showed us that there was no Intelligent Design, for its process natural selection was not in any way directed That is to say, it was a geologically slow and muddled process marked by eons of struggle, most of it futile, not to mention much extinction.So here we are in the present day The fundamentalists believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible or the Koran or the Talmud Something never required of early worshippers Somehow it has come to be thought that religion must be match science truth for truth And religion of course, with its basis in sacred narrative, can never do that.This brings me to Deepak Chopra s new book, The Future of God The book is such a morass, such a muddle of half thoughts and inchoate statements, that at first I hardly knew how to begin my review I suspect it was dictated Not that there s anything wrong with dictionation if you edit and revise, but Mr Chopra does not seem to have even given this mess a second reading I surmise it was just dictated, hurriedly, transcribed, and sent to the publisher After all, why actually work on a book when you know it will sell a 100,000 copies And Chopra publishes books at an inhuman pace Chopra attacks those he calls the militant atheists, particularly Richard Dawkins, the late Christopher Hitchens and others Chopra enters into an insanely outdated mission to lend creedence to Paley s argument for Intelligent Design He falls into the very trap that Armstrong laid out in The Case for God He tries to match proofs with the science of Dawkins et al with regard to God s existence It s moot I was stunned reading that Moreover, Chopra doesn t understand evolution If he did understand it he would not need to rail against its seeming Godlessness For the mechanism of natural selection that Darwin passed down to us does not, to my mind, exclude the idea of a Creator But because Chopra doesn t understand evolution, which, admittedly, can be highly counter intuitive at times, he rejects it wholesale Just astonishing Unlike Armstrong, Chopra does not argue for the existence of God in our daily lives from its basis in the extensive mythical narratives that have come down to us He s argues for a God in the abstract, wholly disconnected from its vast narrative core There s no substantive discussion of the great books of world religion here Chopra is a very traditional fellow, extolling divine inspiration and healings, which he takes at face value.I am an agnostic I believe in something out there, but I don t know what it is I admire normal religious people for their ability to reflect inwardly and live confident and productive lives For a moving portrait of such persons see Marilynn Robinson s fine novel Gilead So I think the average religious person has an advantage on me in that they have the confidence of faith, while I do not.At any rate, I cannot recommended this book If you want a substantive consideration of God in historical context with the great books of revelatory monotheistic faith, I highly recommend Karen Armstong s The Case for God.

    QuoteThe chance that higher life forms might hve emerged in this way i.e., randomly is comparable to the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials within Physicist Sir Fred Hoylep.49QuoteThe analogy was brilliant because it can be easily understood, and believed, by anyone A Boeing 74 has around six million parts, and it takes intelligence, design, and planning to fit them all together Hoyle wasn t a creationist, and he didn t believe in God His aim was to show that highly complex structures can t be explained by chance p.49QuoteDawkins The God Delusion takes nearly four hundred pages to demolish God without seriously considering that a father in the sky might not be the only way to think about the divine As soon as you reply, That s not the God I had in mind, the straw man of God the Father becomes irrelevant Organized religion has been backed into a corner by its refusal to find a viable alternative to God the Father, but such alternatives do exist Saint Augustine had already rejected a literal reading of the Bible in the fifth century AD Modern belief has gone much further away from literalism, but it serves Dawkins not to even take a peek p.53QuoteOne possibility is that God became the creation Einstein suggested something like this in his famous quote about wanting to know the mind of God, although he didn t explicitly say that God was inside the laws governing time and space In other words, God is not a person but the totality of nature As the source of existence, he is the starting point of your being and mine God isn t our father he isn t a watchmaker assembling parts into a watch an image devised in the eighteenth century to explain how a single intelligent creator put all the moving parts of the cosmos together he doesn t have feelings and desires He is being itself All things exist because he existed first There is no need for such a God to be intricate p.53QuoteGod could be the simplest thing of all, in fact He is a unity Diversity unfolds from this unity, and diversity the expanding universe, billions of galaxies, human DNA is bewilderingly complex But its source doesn t have to be diverse Picasso was the source of tens of thousands of artworks, but he didn t have to imagine all of them at once in his mind Like natural selection, God is allowed to produce the natural world step by step, unless you insist, as Dawkins does that the literal acceptance of Genesis is the only creation story religious people believe The alternative I posed, that God became the creation, has a long tradition as well p.54 55QuoteIt would only have taken a few dropped stitches, billions of years ago, for the whole enterprise to have collapses for example, if water didn t emerge from the combination of oxygen and hydrogen The early cosmos was full of free floating hydrogen and oxygen, as it is today DNA cannot exist without water, and the water must have been in abundance for hundreds of millions of years Since 99.9999 percent of the oxygena nd hydrogen in the universe didn t turn into water add as many decimal laces as you like the fact that water appeared on Earth isn t a matter of tiny probable steps Quite the opposite arguments for the uniqueness of life on Earth still hold enormous power, and they don t have to be arguments based on a Biblical God p.55QuoteIf you explore the universe mining it for data and discount everything else, most of what makes life rich and beautiful goes out the window God isn t a strange supernatural fiction, as Dawkins asserts He s the source of our inner world, the same place where art, music, imagination, visionary conceptions, love, altruism, philosophy, morals, and human bonding are born This world has its own truths We can reach them by experiencing them p.56QuoteWe need to be clear about a very basic point The visible universe isn t the same as reality When solid objects are reduced to atoms and then to subatomic particles, they are no longer solid They are clouds of potentiality As physics defines it, potentiality is neither matter nor energy but completely intangible, no matter how solid a mountain may be or how powerful a lightning bolt Particles in such a state aren t even particles any They do not have a specific location in space instead every particle emerges from quantum waves that can extend infinitely in all directions T he most recent theories of the cosmos propose that only 4% of the universe is made up of matter and energy that can be measured the remaining 96% consists of so called dark matter and energy, which are little understood They cannot be seen, only inferred p.93QuoteAll the evidence points in one direction We need a new paradigm for explaining the cosmos We need to accept first and foremost that the last things to be trusted are the five senses More than that, even cherished theories like relativity have become drastically unstable Dark energy is enlarging the space between galaxies faster than the speed of light So something beyond space and time serves as the major force for creation and destruction in the cosmos, and whatever it is, it will be as invisible as mind, God, the soul, and higher consciousness p.94QuoteWisdom tells us secrets before we have a right to know them That s the beauty of it You don t have to pray for wisdom or make yourself worthy of it As with the concept of grace in the New testament, which falls like rain on the just and the unjust alike, the ultimate truth simply is When we catch a glimpse of it, we become real in ourselves It is undeniable that the outward appearance of life contains suffering and distress Wisdom reveals that suffering comes and goes while a deeper reality never changes That reality is founded on truth and love p.121QuoteThe same forces that create saints are present in your life What they wait upon is to be noticed If you are reasonably attentive to what s happening in yourself, you are already responding to the forces listed above p 158 You envision a better life for yourself Growing as a person matters to you You can see the outlines of a better future for yourself.God is realized in the highest state of awareness Since everyone is aware, God is reachable by all of us p.159QuoteAs banal as it sounds, finding God depends on regular practice p.189 QuoteLet It Be p.201 QuoteAt a certain stage, you reach a tipping point Having done the work of imprinting your brain to have new responses, you can trust those responses This opens the door for Being You can let it be when your brain starts taking care of you You already trust your brain to take care of you in countless ways It automatically controls hormone levels respiration, the sleep cycle, heart rate, appetite, sexual response, the immune system, and much So the art of being isn t foreign to you, it is second nature p.203 QuoteGod is reached by going beyond, which is the definition of transcending There is no other way to get past the dead end where thinking stops being useful Quiet awareness must step in If it wants to, awareness is capable of going beyond the material and even the subtle world p.211 QuoteUnless you are blinded by your allegiance to materialism, it s obvious that brain cells can t see or hear in the first place This fact is supported by the simplest test if you peer inside, the brain is dark and silent Something creates glowing sunsets and the clap of thunder, along with all the ravishing sights and sounds of the world That something is personal it s creating your world right this second Genesis is now, but it isn t happening in the brain p.218 QuoteIn the end, to know God is to remember and to forget You forget the illusion that you are separate, isolated, powerless, and stranded in an overwhelming cosmos You remember that you are the dreamer who is in charge of the dream What you perceive through the five senses isn t the same as reality Go beyond the shadow play of appearances, and reality will greet you, as Rumi say, in a world too full to talk about Enter the realm of all possibilities Making them come rue is a great gift It comes directly from God p.222 QuoteThe real issue is how much of infinity you can absorb into your life When expansion is infinite, the whole project feels daunting Why challenge your boundaries, which feel like home You might go flying outward like a paddleball, only to come springing back on a rubber band A liver or heart cell is fortunate To remain alive, it must connect with wholeness It cannot doubt or opt out, turn its back on its creator, or denounce God as a delusion But you are even fortunate You have self awareness, the ability to know who you are So your spiritual path comes down to choosing an identity You act like an isolated individual or like the whole You either align yourself with the universe or you don t p.227

    I m pretty sure when I say the name Deepak Chopra, Mr Chopra needs no introduction However, just in case you haven t heard of Deepak Chopra allow me to make the introduction.Deepak Chopra is one of the most famous global leaders he has transformed the world with his medicine and teachings for wellness of the mind, body, and spirit He is known as a prolific author of 80 eighty books, and 22 twenty two of those books are New York Times best sellers in both fiction and non fiction And last but not least his literary works has been published in than 43 forty three languages As a Buddhist, one of my most favorite literary genres is Spirituality, and with that said I could not wait to get my hands of this book However, I have to admit I read this book twice before writing this book review Why I had to read this book twice because the book was so thought provoking it made it difficult for me to take notes I actually got swept away in some of the messages in this book, and not too many books can do that for me.Now with a title like The Future of God many of you might be wondering what a Buddhist would find so interesting about this book Well Plenty I would like to think that this book is not literally about the future of any one particular God, I think this book is about the future of Religion, Faith, and our existence as human beings in this modern world with an outdated view point of the meaning of Religion and Faith.However, there is no doubt when it comes to Deepak Chopra and his disapproval of militant atheists which God we are focusing on in this book a God that is offered to us as God 2.0.This book is definitely a spiritual journey And it is definitely a journey you would not forget The book instead of being divided into Chapters is divided into stages Stage one, two, and three to be exact Stage One representing Unbelief, Stage Two representing Faith, and Stage Three representing Knowledge With that said, there are some of you who will read this book and fall absolutely in love with every single word And there are some of us that won t Some of you may view the refuting of the atheist s point of view well like telling a child that Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, and The Tooth Fairy does not exist an unnecessary debate Others might feel that the debate was necessary to get the point across about God and the future of God Whether you agree or disagree, there are some truths I believe we should be allowed to have, and others to discover on our own I believe spiritually is the translation of the language of our own individual life philosophy, and there is no right or wrong philosophy whether its religion or science we are all seeking the same thing the path to our own individual happiness.With that said, I end this book review by saying not everyone is going to fall in love with every single word in this book And that s okay it s a matter of personal opinion However I feel Stage Two And Stage Three makes this book a must read and a must have This book definitely gives you something to think about, not only about the views of the atheist mindset, but our views on atheism.At times I felt that the information that was suppose to serves as stepping stone to the realization of God felt like I was throwing stones at the non believers Faith must be saved for everyone s sake From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love Deepak Chopra.I always say what you get out of spirituality is what you invest in it, and just like this book, I believe what you are seeking you shall find

    As I ve watched our next generation wander far from traditional religious views and practice, I ve often thought about the future of God in our country and in the human family at large As I ve watched fundamentalism take root everywhere, I ve often thought God could use a good interpreter down here, one who understands the universality of divine consciousness and its integral connection to our higher human nature So much has been distorted in our religions, it s hard to know where to start A clean slate would be nice, but how would that happen exactly without a disastrous prequel Deepak Chopra takes a stab at a very difficult and controversial subject He defines God 2.0, a fascinating concept that involves us, of course, and our willingness to transform into creatures who accept our inherent divinity and power Even if you don t accept this material offhand, it would be a good idea to read it, stick it in a drawer and watch it grow Because it will grow, as truth always does This, I believe, is how our youth will finally understand the true meaning of their own spirituality outside of the religions that have disappointed and disillusioned so many.

    Really liked the middle half of this book, so much that I m rating it a 4 But had some problems with his critique of militant atheism, his seemingly intentional naivety, and his narrow view of God as non personal So taking the book as a whole, I rate it a 3, but for how much I liked the middle, a 4.Christians wd be better liked if they read books like this, and wd be no further from truth, only closer to God by being closer to themselves.Couple of passages I liked, and some discussion.1.https books.google.com books id 6VeThe passage from Healthy brain function through The light will enter of its own accord 2 Notice Chopra takes for granted that a person can encounter God, experience It firsthand Proving It as a unique entity that exists is irrelevant He s responding to atheists like Hitchens who throw out God altogether, but make arguments only against the personal Christian God and possibly other personal gods Irrelevant People feel God the same way they feel love, anger, indigestion, or a new idea They are affected by the concept and perspective, and they change their perspectives on It That is what matters at first, to Chopra, bc that s all he s claiming God is Just the transcendent everythingness of the universe multiverse , that s all But also merely psychology on steroids Eventually, if you want to debate the existence of an impersonal entity called God, you can subsume these collective experiences into a broader discussion that includes scientific observation and logical argumentation Chopra will go there with you, but only after you understand the kind of God he s talking about and admit that that conception of God is legitimate and in that sense exists , as a conception and worldview and series of emotions that people experience Chopra is in the business of defending possibility as far as you can take it He s not in the business of defending a personal God, and prob doesn t believe in that yet the New Atheists resist him intensely in ways that focusing almost exclusively on a personal God b New atheists wd probably respond to Chopra s wake up before calling others asleep comment by saying that Chopra is the one who needs to wake up, and the only way to settle who s awake is science, the bedrock of thought and truth An important point, and Chopra should take it up, but fails to foresee it If this naivety reflects how he interacts with New Atheists, I doubt I d bother defending him But for now, I ll take up the issue here, casually Let s start with the totems in Inception, where New Atheists tell us science has crafted a tool that perfectly identifies whether you re in a dream or not The end of the movie tells us to stop waiting on tenterhooks to find out if the top keeps spinning and DiCaprio is in a dream, bc it doesn t matter, or at least shdn t be his only desperate concern What s important is he can walk away from the top and reunite and play with his family Chopra gets that, and he s too comfortable and matter of fact with it for my taste, but still, he gets it The New Atheists don t, or don t seem to Maybe bc they have taken on faith the premise that consciousness can be reduced to science If they have proven that, or have a good theory, then they shd spend all their time and write all their books showing how, not working out the implications Of course you have to do it without recourse to consciousness But they don t even seem to try to prove it, and I don t believe philosophers have If you do, let me know Until then, I don t trust the totem top, and I m going to play with my family and my God.c Re holding up a mirror to unbelief and letting illusions fall away to leave only truth and God, and about this being a fearful proposition Yes But for Christians all the so, holding the mirror to belief and unbelief Ouch Christians rely heavily on the Bible and revelation and institutions and tradition, and proudly speak about showing deference to previous thinkers and experts and saints, rather than just believing whatever greedy invention you want Boy are they proud of that And that s good, bc nothing is less credible or life embracing than thinking believing and doing whatever you want It sounds like the ultimate freedom, but as soon as you find something you want to change about yourself, you find you re a slave to yourself and your natural ways and automatic thoughts and genes and upbringing, etc Life comes from doing a mix of what you want at the moment, what you aspire to, what others want you to do, what transcendent forces guide you to, and So Christians miss out who focus only on what they read into the Bible and tradition, and not on what the God within is telling them.I think this is bc Christians, and not just fundamentalists, assume it s always you believing whatever greedy invention pops into your mind, they don t really believe you can hear God within or they would listen and heed Him Or they re scared they re hearing wrong, or that they ll hear wrong if they try Big mistake When you practice listening for what to believe, you find it s what remains after you hold a mirror to your belief and let illusions fall away, when you hold God in mind, and find out what you really believe, when you look at your behavior as the inevitable consequence of your actual beliefs, and let your stated and presumed beliefs fall away Chopra is in the business of defending possibility as far as you can take it, of first expanding your consciousness as far as you re willing to go, stirring it up, and letting truths settle, then starting the process again A very few truths may gain enough substance to settle on the bottom then challenging yourself to go further, I ll have no truck with a worldview that excludes either of these wisdom sources So I reject humanism and canonical Christianity.

    In a word, The Future of God is a beautiful book At the risk of offending those who subscribe to a traditional religion, this book is for the rest of us the spiritual, the believers who dismiss the God of children s fables and the Bible Who reject a white bearded father in the sky, and don t necessarily equate God with Jesus Christ Many such heathens believe unequivocally in God We re smart enough to know that to presume otherwise is wholly illogical and arrogant As Deepak points out, to accept that a universe as complex as ours haphazardly came to be absent a deeper intelligence is like believing that the six million parts of a Boeing 747 whooshed together from the wreckage of a tornado.Deepak divides our Universe into three parts the material world the subtle world and the transcendent world Naturally, we cannot see or perceive the latter two, but this does not mean they do not exist Rather, if we are open, if we connect with our deeper consciousness, the subtle and transcendent worlds offer hints of their existence Deepak gives such examples as when we have an aha moment, or when we are struck by awe and wonder Other examples are having a leap of creativity experiencing love thinking of someone s name and then that person calls isn t it uncanny how often that happens And what about those meaningful coincidences that sometimes fall into place to fulfill our desires, or feeling the presence of someone who died Deepak also speaks about faith in god leading us to wise choices, such as speaking up for the truth not succumbing to the voice of fear and making conscious decisions about those inevitably bad situations life throws our way i.e., put up with it, try to fix it, or walk away These are perhaps mundane moral issues we each face all the time But it seems to me that respect for a higher consciousness provides the foundation for right thinking Conversely, the abandonment of any spiritual core erodes our moral imperative, which is why it s now fine to lie, coast, and cheat as long as we don t get caught I gave this book four stars because, as many other reviewers have pointed out, Deepak spends way too much time refuting the claims of Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion. It s as if a prime purpose of Deepak s was to rebut Dawkins illogical and poorly argued case for atheism I daresay, Deepak probably did to promote The God Delusion through his outspoken indignity, when The Future of God can and should stand all on its own But unlike some reviewers, I do not fault Deepak for not being enlightened, as I hold him to no higher standard than the rest of us He, too, is a mere mortal on whatever path he is on I once saw him on Bill Maher s show, Politically Incorrect, where he became quite riled over something another guest had said And Deepak can be repetitive at times, and a bit fluffy in his arguments Nonetheless, he deserves credit for tackling a topic of universal and enduring importance in an uplifting way we ordinary, non religious folk can appreciate On the whole, The Future of God gave me a greater feeling of connection to a higher consciousness I have little doubt exists It left me at peace and in awe than ever at the sheer wonder of it all Kudos to Deepak for a timely, comforting, and quite respectable reaffirmation of the inevitability of God in these divisive times.

    No delusions, just an open mind.The main reason I like Deepak Chopra s latest book, The Future of God is that it stands as a viable alternative to the militant atheist s bible, the God delusion Indeed, even though Deepak does not make the statement himself at least I have not read specific words to that effect , it seems to me that The Future of God was written as a direct response to the avowed enemies of faith As such, many references are made to the militant atheist tribe and their self proclaimed conquistadors.Deepak does clearly state in this book that he has no issue with those who have no faith in a higher power, he simply takes exception to the fact that, This disturbing movement centered around Professor Richard Dawkins cloaks its vehement, often personal attacks in terms of science and rea son I have no harsh things to say about atheism without the militancy Building from there, Deepak incorporates three stages of personal development that one progresses through on the path to God unbelief, faith and finally knowledge In other words, They are stepping stones from No God to Perhaps God to God in me The first stage of Unbelief is characterized by reason and doubt and individuals, atheists, take the position that the physical is all that there is The second stage, Faith , is when individuals hope that God is real and while this can be a positive influence, there is also the negative side of faith which is fanaticism The third and final stage, Knowledge , is the stage where we are able to assert unquestioningly to ourselves that God does exist The transition from stage to stage is not a clear cut, well defined process, rather it is a gradual progression and it is bi directional, in that while progress can be made, there will also be times when we can also digress Woven into the three stages are numerous references and discussions that have taken place with said militant atheists, statistics about the state of religion and faith, anecdotal stories about the power of faith and various scientific discoveries pertaining to the nature of reality.If one truly looks at the facts , the hard questions have not been solved by science and to discount a potential cause, simply because it does not fit into one s belief system, is certainly not science, it is dogma For those who do not wish to open their eyes, the world will always be dark So, in the final analysis, an ardent militant atheist would likely not enjoy this book, nor would any religious fundamentalists because, The Future of God is written to encourage a deeper exploration of the mystery of existence As evidenced by the prolific endorsements from some of the world s leading professors, in many diverse fields, it is apparent that this latest book from Deepak not only provides readers with a philosophical view of faith, but also one founded on leading edge science rather than the pseudoscience advocated by the naysayers If you already know all the answer to the mysteries of life, then you won t enjoy, or benefit from, this book If, on the other hand, you feel that God doesn t have to be an old man with a beard sitting on a cloud, if you feel that there is something , if you are curious about the nature of reality and you are open to possibilities, than this could be the book you are looking for.

    As a primer on the human wisdom that can be gained from Eastern religion and philosophy, this would be nearly a two star book.As a book on God, one star is far too generous.Here are a few of the book s problems not even close to a comprehensive list 1 Utter pantheism.2 Denial of the reality of evil and the claim that resisting evil is participation in evil.3 The claim that Christian faith, particularly in the resurrection, is blind.4 Making Christianity particularly penal substitutionary atonement the least evolved of all ideas of God.It s a train wreck from beginning to end No wonder Oprah loves this guy.

    Misplacing this book, I said to a person, do you know where The Future of God is She mistook this as a defensive take on one of life s big questions, explaining numbers of youth attending church are up I guess she has her God as a witness to that one.But chances are if you re offended by Chopra for many reasons, his net worth, his network Oprah , 12 people of big credibility supporting him at the beginning of this book He s twinged skeptics nerves, challenging Team Dawkins, Team Harris, Team Hitchens While I refuse to jump on or stand militant by any person, and honestly accept my opinion as a far less learned offering, that s to say, I know very little sometimes I m stupid proving that in this review However, the hostility and arrogance from whoever no matter the message is off putting Robust, rational debate is required but I think when any person demeaned on purpose, it comes at cost especially to those of us once skeptic, who ve surfaced from suffering, rejected the material world opting for creativity, diet change, meditation, living better and operating from the heart therefore discovering some of Chopra s woo.There s great value in quashing aspects of religion we know are batty Equally, there s value in offering us a new version of spirituality or indeed, a version followed personally without inferring on others as THE way, THE only way and best left to your interpretation no matter what language used to persuade or deter you away from.Like him or not, he s added something to consider, and whether you give him credit is entirely run by your gut, head, and cold heart ha

    So this is sitting on the NEW FICTION table at the library and with it being Christmas and all I pick it up thinking it might get some spirit of the season going.Having returned my membership to the Pope many years ago it turns out Mr.Chopra doesn t go to church either,interesting.Read on.As it becomes clear early on,this is not so much about the future of God,as it is about the present of Richard Dawkins Mr Chopra does not like him imagine a lightbulb here.So now I have to read The God Delusion to find out why Mr.Chopra is so PO d I think I ll just watch Charlie Brown and have a cup of good cheer
