    "Religion Is a Fine Thing, Lad, Take It In Moderation"

    I'll follow my quote from Trading Places with one from the titular author: "The moderates’ [liberal] position seems to me to be fence-sitting. They half-believe in the Bible but how do they decide which parts to believe literally and which parts are just allegorical...

    I Respect The Man

    I have great respect for Richard Dawkins because he actually has the courage to stand up and question the ridiculous doctrines of religion publicly , I am also surprised that he is still alive considering the amount of religious fanatics out there . I am certain that preacher men...

    Love The Man!

    Not only is he a fantastic writer, he's also a good speaker. I love the idea that he's out there fighting for the acceptance of American atheists in society. I love it that he's taking on the lies and power-games played by religious leaders. Finally, there's this one person...

    A Bit of Hero Worship

    To say I am a fan of Dr. Dawkins is to say i rather enjoy breathing. I was introduced to him as so many others before me by his highly readable and oft time quotable book, the God delusion. From there I consumed his other books including the Ancestors tale ( it took me one...

    On my Christmas wish list this year were 3

    books by Richard Dawkins. I have read two of them but wanted to reread them again. Richard speaks not only for fellow scientists, he speaks for people like me who do not have an extensive background in science but a huge interest in it and who think there is no better way to...

    Rickard Is Amazing

    Watching Richard debating on youtube is a major hobby of mine. I love his look of disbelief when a Bishop or religious scholar makes ridiculous claims about God or morality.

    Dawkins VS Tyson

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_2xGIwQfik I agree with Tyson. I think Richard was nicer in his younger years of teaching, although just as atheist as ever from the start. atheism is a perspective I have enjoyed, deism, taoism, brahmanism, egotheism, are more interesting.
