Despite having a brilliant mind, he has become far more intolerant than the "religious" groups he despises (and makes this hatred publicly known).
He spends his time whining about how a single foolish president of a country he doesn't even live in said quite some time ago that he doesn't believe atheists to be patriotic citizens.
Apparently, he hates it when people say bad things about him and what he thinks, but has no problem letting the world know that he thinks "religious" people are morons.
He's infamous for bunching every religion of all time into a little ball and blaming that ball for all the world's problems.
He denies all the incredible supernatural acts throughout history witnessed by millions of people because he believes himself more intelligent, and therefore the events didn't happen (or were remarkable coincidence).
He also claims "religion" hinders science, despite Newton, Bacon, Galileo, Kepler, and some of the most brilliant minds in history being Christians. I mean, even Ben Franklin was a deist (though hardly religious).
Richard Dawkins: "Religion destroys nations. That's why as Europe began to lose its religious foundations it became weaker and weaker despite once being the center of all world powers, while the United States, which had only been around for a few hundred years, held onto its religious beliefs and rapidly rose to become the greatest power in the world in a very short time. Therefore, I have to turn America away from religion, because I'm jealous."
Richard Dawkins was the kid in school who claimed anyone within his circle of friends was cool and everyone outside of it wasn't.
Therefore, by his logic, he was friends with all the coolest kids in school, despite this not being true.
Don't you just love Richard Dawkins and his "facts"?
He wrote an essay called Viruses of the Mind, referring to religion. He calls believers, faith-sufferers, and disparages even those who are tolerant of others' faith. He thinks they are a large part of the problem.
Dawkins also has a cult following of militant fanboys who dream about him on the internet and this will become apperant when you see the thumbs down on my definition
Consistently the subject of fanatical religious attacks, which claim him to be equally dogmatic. Most of these criticisms come from uneducated or tactless Christian apologists, who have read very little of his material and understand little about atheism and/or biology.
Has never claimed to be dogmatic, but insists that he answers to reason alone. This is a contextually correct statement when you look at his accusers. Most of his critics choose to willfully submit to religion, God, and Jesus, based on their "strong spiritual and Biblical evidence." Such people are universally panned as "Jesusfreaks."
Is a leading figure of the atheist movement which includes Hitchens, Dennet, and Harris. Is also the subject of Urban Dictionary attacks by Christian dogmatists who have never picked up a book beside the Bible.
Richard Dawkins just busted out a can of intellectual kick-ass on that creationist.
He believes humans are innately moral because it's in the interest of our selfish genes which compete to replicate, but when we are bad it's because of religion.
