Review: Richard Dawkins

From our friend SlimJim’s blog, “The Domain for Truth”

I have to admit I was jarred to see the name “Richard Dawkins” and the phrase “Great Thinkers” on the same book cover. But Jimmy’s blog post makes it clear. Lots of food for thought here.    –LD

The Domain for Truth

No doubt many people today would have heard of atheist spokesman Richard Dawkins.  What does a Christian and Reformed response to Richard Dawkins looks like?  This work is a defense of the Christian faith that deals with Richard Dawkins by also beyond him in dealing with the subject of atheism.  This book is part of the Great Thinkers series published by P&R Publishing and thus far of the three volumes (this work and the ones on Aquinas and Marx) I have read this one is by far my favorite one.

‘What’s Up, Dawk?’

See the source image

Chalcedon published this essay by Anthony Rogers in 2007, discussing the flawed logic and self-delusion of atheists like Richard Dawkins.

It reminds me of how J.R.R. Tolkien once used a scholar’s own standards, procedures, and line of argument to “prove” that the scholar himself did not exist, but was only a legendary personification of an ancient Celtic sun god.

Fun Fact: Richard Dawkins’ first name is actually “Clinton.” How fitting.


Atheist Dawkins OK with Cannibalism?

This almost qualifies as comic relief. But not quite.

Atheist all-star Richard Dawkins, looking to find a new gig after defending “mild pedophilia” (don’t ask!) and pressing for the abortion of all babies with Down’s syndrome, has come out in favor of… cannibalism (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2018/03/07/richard-dawkins-says-we-should-get-over-our-yuck-taboo-against-cannibalism/).

Oh, he doesn’t mean chasing someone down, conking him over the head, and tossing him into a cooking pot. Heavens no. He wants “lab-grown” human meat: “I’ve been looking forward to this,” he says. Yessiree, human flesh grown in a culture vat. Bon appetite. But if you’ve ever read Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Synthetic Men of Mars, you know that once you start growing bits of people in a culture vat, you don’t always get what you want.

Have I mentioned that Dawkins thinks space aliens “seeded” life on earth?

This jidrool, who calls atheists “brights” to distinguish them from us “dim” normal people who still believe in God, says chowing down on people-meat will be “an interesting test case for consequentialist morality versus ‘yuck reaction’ absolutism.”

What’s “consequentialist morality?” Well, instead of those tired old moral absolutes handed down by God, this says you determine by its consequences whether an action is morally good or bad. It’s kind of a nice name for moral imbecility. Let us not burden ourselves with questions like “consequences to whom?” Anyone but a true interllectural can see through this.

While there is something appealing about the idea of atheists and other leftids making happy meals of one another, only to be disappointed by what they find when they open up the skull, and quibbling over who gets the nicer bits of Bill Nye or Neil DeGrasse Tyson, we know they’d never do the world such a favor as that. If they can’t get their din-din from a culture vat, they’ll go after Climbit Change Deniers. Or whatever they can buy from Planned Parenthood.

No, it isn’t really funny. Leftids have no sense of humor.

Dawkins isn’t joking. He really is that loathsome.

 


Atheist Wing-Ding Cancelled

A Global Atheist Conference scheduled for next February in Melbourne, Australia, has been cancelled due to “lack of interest” (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/11/16/global-atheist-convention-cancelled-for-lack-of-interest/).

Ain’t that a shame? And here they went and got two big-name guest speakers for it, too: Salman Rushdie, a former Muslim, and Richard Dawkins, who believes in space aliens.

The problem is, atheism is boring. It only acquires interest when they’re baiting Christians. Among themselves, they don’t have much to talk about. I mean, how many times can you say, “Boy are we smart!”

Did I mention Dawkins believes in space aliens? That’s how life on earth got started. Space aliens started it. How the space aliens’ life got started, he doesn’t say. This sort of thing might have been hard to parley into a whole conference.

Atheist Stifled for Rapping Islam

Once again, the Left turns on one of its own.

Richard Dawkins, the Western world’s leading Christian-basher, made the mistake of criticizing Islam. Instantly, a speech he was to give at Berkeley University next month was cancelled by its organizers (http://blackchristiannews.com/2017/07/michael-brown-speech-by-atheist-richard-dawkins-cancelled-over-his-criticism-of-islam-but-statements-against-christianity-get-a-pass/)–who, of course, profess that “We support free speech.” Could’ve fooled me! Berkeley is where free speech goes to die.

Dawkins called Islam the “most evil” religion in the world: implying, in case anyone hadn’t noticed, that all religions are “evil.”

Funny, isn’t it? For telling lies, the “progressives” of this fallen world praised him and made him famous. The one time he tells the truth, they shoot him down. Now he’s persona non grata among his own kind.

Meanwhile, Muslims in the Syrian town of Raqqa are celebrating their liberation from ISIS’ little caliphate by burning their burqas and shaving off the ugly beards the tyrants made them grow (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4718088/Syrian-women-burn-burqas-ISIS-wear.html)

They tell horrific tales of the caliphate’s unrestrained violence against, well, everyone they could get their hands on.

Maybe Dawkins could give his speech there.

 


Top Atheist: Maybe ET’s Created Life on Earth

Just in case you missed this, when it was included in the movie, Expelled, a few years ago, here is atheist cleanup hitter Richard Dawkins saying that maybe space aliens created life on earth, or at least “seeded” the place.

Having admitted that neither he nor anybody else knows the origin of life (see the Bible for the answer to that question), Dawkins is backed into a corner, trying to explain how life began. When the interviewer, Ben Stein, tosses him the life-preserver, “Maybe aliens started life on Earth,” Dawkins grabs it.

I guess this is why he calls atheists like himself “Brights,” to distinguish them from the dim bulbs like us who don’t believe in space aliens as substitutes for God.
