On this episode of ID The Future CSC’s Logan Gage asks, who wrote Richard Dawkins’ latest book, The God Delusion? Gage interviews AEI’s Joe Manzari who questioned Dawkins about this at a recent event promoting the book. A strong determinist, which Dawkins would seem to be as a staunchly atheistic Darwinist, believes that everything is pre-determined by material processes. So, taking credit for writing a book is illogical. Does Dawkins believe determinism is true? Does he think people are responsible for their actions or not?
