"The problem of creationism can be tackled with dialogue. But Dawkinsite atheists seem unwilling to move beyond scorn"
All ready something dumb has been said. Creationists say that the bible, a book which bible endorses slavery in Leviticus 25:44-46, Exodus 21:2-6, Exodus 21:7-11, Exodus 21:20-21, Ephesians 6:5, 1 Timothy 6:1-2 and in Luke 12:47-48, is a good book... How can one move beyond scorn with this evil?

Those who have no argument other than scorn will eventually get pushed to the sidelines. Dawkins days are numbered (By that I mean the days of his influence.). Becuase ultimately, atheism leaves a vacuum in the mind and the soul.

There is no point bitching about slavery when the world buys all manner of crap from China (atheist government) and its slave labour camps just because its cheap.
Its a case of anything for a dollar, with dawkins he will spew out his crap as long as he has a fan base.
And as long as he has a fan base he will wring those suckers for a buck at every opportunity.

Professor Dawkins simply follows the evidence and states the obvious - that this behaviour might reasonably be described as delusional...

Religion = superstition
Religion is divisive too.

Argument? Atheist don't need an argument since theists have yet to provide evidence that there is a god.

Atheism leaves a vaccuum in the mind and soul? LOL!!! That mus be why the VAST majority of scientists are atheist. As for the soul? LOL!!! Got proof? LOL!!!

What letters did you omit between "kind" and "a"?

There is a point to bitching about slavery, as if you don't it will never fade away. And why are you stating the fact that China has an atheist government, are their labour camps justified using atheism? No! Well then why did you bring it up?
On the subject of irreverent subjects why bring up Dawkins? I didn’t mention him in my own words I only quoted the Guardian article.

Ask the Falun Gong, Tibetan buddhists, Uighur Muslims and Anti commie Christians doing time in those camps......most likely permanently.

The only vacuum that exists is the proof of god

Those folks are in there for being enemies of the state. Please give one instance of an atheist being convicted of being an enemy of the state, but than being spared because of their atheism.

-Skeptic- and The serpent was right have aready said what I was going to, I asked you are China’s labour camps justified using atheism? All you have done is list the religions the people inside them have. When you answer someone’s question it is best to answer question and not slap the questioner with a red herring.
