For all the hate and love about ol' Richard on here:
Face it. He is not an intolerant bigot- at least, as far as i can see. he is a nice old oxfordian who simply has very strong opinions. And by and large, his arguments against religion make a lot of sense, although sometimes you get the feeling he'd convince more people if he calmed down a bit.
There are some holes in his theological arguments, but there is no reason to call him an unaccepting stubborn narrow-minded antichrist fundamentalist. Fundamentalists blow up the twin towers and don't let women leave the house for fear of beatings. Richard Dawkins is just a guy with a passionate opinion that sometimes leads him to have less repect for people than he ought to. But hey, we all make mistakes.
SHOUTING MATCHER 1: Richard Dawkins is a universal genius! He discovered atheism! Long live Richard! Praise be to Our Richard, who aren't in heaven!'
ANGRY BELIEVER: DAWKINS WILL BURN IN HELL!!! HE BELIEVES DISABLED PEOPLE ARE INFERIOR AND LEPRECHAUNS ARE BETTER THEN GOD!!! HE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA OF PURE EVIL!!!!
*enter emcee RD himself, looking thoroughly Oxford-y and docile*
RD: wow, this is certainly awkward.
