Dawkinalia

Here’s an interview in Salon with Richard Dawkins about his latest book, “The Greatest Show on Earth.

Whoa, look at that — it’s half off today. I just ordered my copy. You should order yours! Here, let’s let Dawkins himself give the pitch:

No, I’m not really aiming [the book] at creationists. I don’t think they read books anyway, except for one book. It’s aimed at the intelligent layperson who does read books and who vaguely knows a little bit about evolution and who vaguely knows that there are creationists and maybe even vaguely thinks that he’s a creationist himself, but who is curious and wants to know the evidence.

It’s just that the evidence is so enthralling, it’s so exciting. It is so wonderful that here we are on this planet and we understand why we’re here. And it’s just a sort of ecstatic feeling to understand why you exist, and I want to share that feeling with other people.

    Right… he says its not a shot at creationists because he doubts they read books. Cheap shot Dawkins. Some of the best read individuals are Christians many who are Creationists. You commit ad hominem by attacking others to try to minimize intelligent and thoughtful discussion.

    You are making a lot of money on your lies.
