Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

High-status international atheist powwows apparently take place, leaving edifying youtube videos in their wake for us, the apathetic faithless. A strong feminist call to attention has dropped of...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Rebecca Watson's vlogpost (http://skepchick.org/2011/06/about-mythbusters-robot-eyes-feminism-and-jokes/) [skip to 4:30] was published on June 20 and would have generated enormous comments/discussion...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Watson wasn't simply complaining to her friends--her commentary on elevatorgate was public and widely-discussed. I responded at length (http://gavinsullivan.blogspot.com/search?q=watson), with...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Dawkins' Muslima comment was unusual and out-of-character--not in keeping with his other public statements. Rebecca Watson had got under Dawkins' skin...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Okay, I acknowledge the Muslima posting was Richard at his petulent worst. Like Dawkins, I feel unsympathetic to Rebecca Watson's position, in elevatorgate, though I've never momentarily felt the...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins has not suggested that the healthy human psyche be made up of reason alone; we all acknowledge the area of the irrational, variously defined. A paragraph isn't required for us to...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

Sapeye's link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYigmGyN2RQ) in no way strengthens the case--and so if that's where you want to leave it, I will sleep soundly tonight.

Polemicists can stay in my...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

The question doesn't require us to speculate on Dr. Dawkins' feelings. Whether Dawkins has commonly...

Re: concerning Richard Dawkins

I looked at your link, Sapeye--and it doesn't boil down to 'I'm rational; you're idiots.' Dawkins puts forward an evidence-based criticism of theists; that's very different from idle name-calling.

concerning Richard Dawkins

Rothenberg's criticism of Dr. Dawkins (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/39823?in=49:46&out=50:15) is unfair; I was saddened to observe John seconding it. Dawkins takes on his critics courageously...
