The article discusses the evolutionary religious study of Richard Dawkins in the U.S. The author emphasizes that Dawkins' works were based on the critique of religion on the scientific study from an evolutionary perspective. In the book "The God Delusion," Dawkins makes it clear that he loathes religion for its intolerance, blind faith and cruelty. He also attributes these problems to religion and thinks that the world no longer needs it.
