Author of the year
Not only was he voted as the top intellectual in Europe - having been cited as a source more than any other scientist, but he also just received an award for being the author of the year.
So it isn't just me that thinks Dr. Richard Dawkins is a genius.
Such an eloquent and bold conversationalist deserves this recognition.
Dawkin's - The head of science at Oxford University and the founder of "The Richard Dawkins Foundation of Science and Reason" - book "The God Delusion" has been on the New York Times Best-seller list for over 6 months now. It is one of the greatest books I've ever read.
In it, Dawkins uses history, contemporary events, Quantam Physics, Evolutionary Biology, Psychology, and simple political common sense to completely dissect the irrationality and dangers of religious faith.
The God Delusion is a must read for anyone who has doubted the existence of God - and an inquisition for which any fundamentalist must rebut.
