Although Dawkins had sketched his views on the implications of a Darwinian
worldview for religion in earlier writings, his first systematic treatment of this issue
is found in his important work The Blind Watchmaker (1986). The subtitle
emphasizes one of the work's core themes: “Why the evidence of evolution
reveals a universe without design.” The Blind Watchmaker is regarded as one of
Dawkins' most important publications, and reveals both his skills as a
communicator and his ...

The Blind Watchmaker Thesis Romans 1:20 tells us that, "since the creation of
the world, God's invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature— have
been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made." Some of us find
confirmation of this principle in the nature of living organisms, which incorporate

designer. As Richard Dawkins wrote on the opening page of The Blind
Watchmaker, ...

For him, Darwinian selection is blind: Natural selection, the blind unconscious,
automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the
explanation for the existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no
purpose in mind. It has no mind, and no mind's eye. It does not plan for the future.
It has no vision, no foresight, no sight at all. If it can be said to play the role of
watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker. (Dawkins, 2000: 5) The Divine
