You really seem to be a presumptuous fool!

People can disagree with Dawkins all they want, but he has a very wonderful view on the real world that most theists simply cannot fathom, stuck in their dark caves huddled about that tiny little candle called religion, they simply do not see the beauty and grandeur in the real world. It's no wonder why Dawkins enjoys reading from Darwin, the two share a passion for the wonder of nature.
I see the beauty and wonder in even the human-made world, especially our technology. The connections, timelines, and tree of technological evolution is almost as complex and glorious as that of biological evolution's tree of life. The way our technology works though, even more complex and grand than the systems of life, something no religious nut would ever admit to, in the matter of organized poetry and systematic beauty, our technology beats nature a million times over. The efficiency in which our computer technology works is absolutely amazing, when you understand it. I have a very difficult time believing that our machines do not yet count as living, we have created a marvelous new world within the natural world, and it's a world that contains almost as many worlds as our own galaxy. We can now fit all the information the human brain can hold in the palm of our hands, a single SSD storage device can hold as much as any human can memorize, not because of how many bytes it can store, but because of how much more efficient our technology is in storing this data. Our video technology can display images ten times faster than the average eye can see, and we could even go faster, just no need to. We can produce, detect, and analyze sounds that our ears cannot even hear using a common, household, computer now.
We may be a pretty stupid and easily scared species, but we do one thing right, and we do it better than nature, we can build better than anything in nature.

"WARNING," it reads, in five-inch-high orange letters. "Drunks, homosexuals, abortionist [sic], adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, witches, idolaters, HELL AWAITS YOU."

No wonder people are leaving the church.

Stating facts in a poetic manner is "presumptuous" to you? Explains why you prefer archaic texts behind the times.

Projection from the cowardly True Believer™ who is too afraid to leave the "safety" of the wood-fired, stone-age campfire of faith.

Pitiful.

But-- you have no fear of a raging zombie hoard do you? They are in search of brains....

.... they'd starve, if you were to be their fare.
