Dawkins is a christian because he believes in ressurrection - survival of genes even after they die.

Dawkins is also a christian because he believes in evolutionary selection. He thinks some genes are favoured over other genes. Just like God favours some people over other people in the lineage of the prophets.

Dawkins is also a christian because he believes in original sin but calls it selfishness, our naturally immoral state.

Dawkins is also a Christian because he thinks that forced effort - altruism - is needed to overcome our natural fallen state.

Richard Dawkins, a missionary, is an old-time Christian with a gripe against his boss. Every one of his ideas has parallels in the Bible. The only difference is in the casting.

Dawkins's book "the God delusion" promotes Dawkins supernaturalism.

There is no sentence in it that doesn't ask us to believe in his supernatural doctrines and simple animistic beliefs.

my original post could not be challenged.

here is another challenge. I challenge anyone to show me a passage in Dawkins books that doesn't ask us to believe in supernaturalism.

The guy is a fraud. He wouldn't last two minutes if he squared up to me. And the bozos that support him, well, they are bozos.

Didn't even notice there WAS a challenge.(shrug)

Dawkins' theological/philosophical opinions are irrelevant.

Then go to his website and offer to debate him. That is not here. In the meantime we don't really care about your boasts. And you would still be better off posting in the appropriate forum:

No-one chose to meet my challenge.

Dawkins is selling religion to atheists but they are too dumb to see it.

In black and white: Dawkins believes in ressurrection - the "survival" of genes.

Can't see it? That's blind faith for you. Or dumb sycophancy.

He needs to be ditched.

I took your challenge and provided a quote that makes no mention of supernaturalism. Further I did so to demonstrate the point that you would ignore it anyway.

No-one's interested in your "challenges".

Theism and atheism are both irrelevant to the validity of science. That is why your posts are more suited for the religion forum. Or even better, the Dawkins forum itself.

Bye then.(shrug)

What effect does Earth's rotational speed have upon its gravitational pull? This is important.
