In re:

BREAKING THE SPELL: RELIGION AS A NATURAL PHENOMENON by Daniel C. Dennett, Viking, New York, 2006, 464pp.,
reviewed by Michael Shermer in SCIENCE 27 January 2006.

Riggins makes short shrift of Shermer's shallow, politically biased, pseudo-evolutionary perspective on the history of religion.
