Best. Stumble. Ever.
I think some of the stumblers below don't realize this is satire.
From the page:...a number of mavericks still cite creationists as evidence of a process of 'natural aberration' in which nature sometimes gets it spectacularly wrong, a theory popularised as 'unintelligent design'.
This is a funny article, as are the outraged responses from religionists and their uptight ilk.
The Onion does this kind of stuff better.
Dawkins really can be such an asshole. Truly. I think creationism is as ridiculous as the next person but proclaiming a group of people to be entirely useless is just irresponsible and tactless. He was probably (hopefully) joking, but he's such a figurehead for the atheist/agnostic community and encouraging that sort of dismissive thinking is just fucking stupid. I just love how he bitches endlessly about how religious folks stereotype and marginalize atheists, but then he turns around and perpetrates the same behavior toward the religious as if HE'S personally entitled to. It sucks because I'd really like to respect him, but more and more I can't. I just think he too often feeds hateful, narrow-minded attitudes and I think he can be just as bad as the worst religious figureheads with how little he seems to give a shit about the effects.
Now the reasoning put forth here by Dawkins sounds like ravings of an insane person - this is the guy who said although life could not have been created here by a higher intelligence (intelligent design) life here could have been created by intelligent aliens from another planet? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyT_AOtwHa4 . This guy may be considered intelligent by some but the truth is he is really stupid...I think he just loves to hear himself pontificate and has no idea what he is actually saying. He is the weird uncle many people have somewhere in their family they talk about when he is not around....very strange person.
This site sucks
This is satire. It does not look like satire, so it makes Richard out to be a jackass since someone who does not know he wouldn't say something like that would take it seriously.
Shut up Richard Dawkins. You dont have to be a intolerant fool to be an atheist.
Ricky- Satire! S-a-t-i-r-e.
Wow, more anti-Christian junk on SU? Ugh...
Har har har
