hmmm, but do you now cede that he was throwing stones? as opposed to:
I have not observed Dr. Dawkins 'going around throwing stones at people'
comment was unusual and out-of-character--not in keeping with his other public statements. Rebecca Watson had got under Dawkins' skin
. He was irritated.
As it happens, Watson's elevatorgate
silly--and deserved fair-minded, polite refutation. It is too bad Dawkins fired off his ill-considered comment, fueling Watson's subsequent grandstanding. That said, I don't think it represents Dawkins' overall message; it's a one-off.
