You seem obsessed with Dawkins.

Much of philosophy is just people who are not very good at science dicking about.

The scientific method yields lasting truths.

Lincoln continues to attack Dawkins because he cannot attack Atheism.

When creationist learn to tell the truth and admit their failings they will stop looking so stupid and cowardly here.

Your god might say this if he were real, but he's not, so you have to lie to us instead.

Creationists find the truth of human biology insulting. Its part of the mental illness of faith and their ego problems.

By the way, keep trying. Its fun highlighting your stupidity. You create more atheists than anyone else when you try & fail to defend your cult's lies.

Richard Dawkins, celebrity atheist and evolutionary biologist, made a lot of people angry on Twitter today by weighing in once more with his views on Islam (spoiler alert: he's not a fan). It's just the latest in a series of online statements from the scientist that have even some of his most devoted followers wishing he'd be a bit more, well, rational, with his off-the-cuff remarks.

The tirade was prompted by Alex Gabriel's post at Heresy Club a long, atheist-to-atheist explanation of what's behind Dawkins's repeated Twitter rants on Muslims. It turns out that Dawkins has a particular grudge with Islam, with loose ties to the rhetoric of the European far right. Dawkins is well-known as a "New Humanist" atheist, a particular cut of atheism that tends to see little to no value in religion at all — think Christopher Hitchens here. At its best, that argument gives equal time and criticism to all the religions of the world — like the opposite of a co-exist bumper sticker, with the goal of questioning and calling out religion's unique reverence in society. But Dawkins has taken New Humanism to a different end, focusing heavily in recent years on Islam. Here he is, calling Islam "One of the great evils in the world."

Richard Dawkins' tweets on Islam are as rational as the rants of an extremist Muslim cleric.

Today is the first day of Eid, the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. I took the day off, as Eid on your own at work without family can be a rather bleak affair, and was surprised to find that when I logged on to Twitter (not a nice place over the past few days) there were lots of genuine Eid messages from non-Muslims and Muslim fasters, luxuriating in their first morning teas in a month. Even David Cameron's "Eid Mubarak" registered quite low on my cynicism scale. I posted my own Eid greeting, and proceeded to bask in the unfamiliar good will of the morning.

Then Richard Dawkins,
like a guest arriving too drunk to a polite and civil party, crashed into Eid. His tweet, apropos nothing at all, jarring with all the rest stated:

nobody here cares for the ignorant opinions of a proofless creationist liar.

Go back to your cult and tell them you failed to convert any atheists today.
