The GR's remind me way too much of the Westboro Baptist Church. Going around intentionally "griefing" grieving families. I'm not saying I cheered when she got stoned, but I definitely didn't grieve for her.
edit: Actually, I think that is what I hate so much about this show. It was sold as a mystery show. Instead, it seems to be some weird fauxdocumentary on the Westboro Baptist Church.
You are really getting sidetracked if you get into a debate about whether Galileo was "right" or not. Whether he was right or not, he didn't deserve to have his books banned, kept in indefinite imprisonment or told he can no longer teach his ideas. This is a literature forum, can we at least agree on that here?
My source is the wikipedia page on his punishments

Just because you find it uninteresting, or that the link finds it uninteresting, doesn't mean the OP will or other people will. The God Delusion also responds to many of those points about the cosmological argument. I am just trying to point out that the cosmological argument in that article is much "weaker" than the one in common use.
Anyway, in thousands of years of man's existence, a great many people have spent a lot of time trying to prove God's existence. Responding to all of them in one book is going to be pretty hard. I think the God Delusion does a pretty admirable job trying to handle that tough task.
