Richard Dawkins


The great Creation/Evolution debate is over. Will it go down in the history books with the same importance as the Thomas Huxley v. Samuel Wilberforce debate of 1860? Time will tell. I put in my two cents worth on how Ken Ham should have approached the debate. Here’s some of what I wrote: “Make the …

The upcoming Bill Nye the Science Guy versus Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis debate is upsetting some evolutionists. Dan Arel writing at RichardDawkins.net is one of them: “Scientists should not debate creationists. Period.” Mr. Arel begins by claiming that there are a number of topics that are worth debating but Creationism vs. evolution “is …

Before a show like Extreme Makeover, there was Queen for a Day that first ran as a radio show and was later picked up for television from 1956 to 1964. Four pitiful and woeful women would tell their story to a studio audience. After hearing tortuous tales of discomfort, the audience would vote on who …

The Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles, Calif., a temple to the religion of evolution, displayed a plaque that read as follows: “The Nature Lab is a gift to Los Angeles to celebrate all of God’s creatures and enable NHM to broaden our understanding of the natural world through the process of scientific discovery.” …

Evolution is today’s secular religion. Evolutionists have their own creation story (abiogenesis), holy books (On the Origin of Species, The God Delusion), priesthood (Charles Darwin, Richard Dawkins), seminaries (universities), and houses of worship (atheist “mega-church” movement). The charge is often made that the debate over evolution is over. Evolution has been proven to be a …

In her interview with marathon swimmer Diana Nyad — the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a protective cage — Oprah Winfrey said she believed in something greater than herself but did not go so far as to say that she believed in a personal god. Nyad said that she was an …

If we are to believe evolutionists like Richard Dawkins, religion is the enemy of science. He’s not the first atheist to make this claim. But when Dawkins speaks these days, people listen and react. For example, this tweet about Islam and science got a stern response: “[A]ll the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than …

I love it when atheists like those from the Freedom from Religion Foundation bring out a new atheist campaign. The latest Freedom From Religion Foundation campaign is an invitation to students, faculty, and the general public at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to “stone” them at “Blasphemy Rights Day” based on “biblical quotes calling for the …

An atheist college student, Daniel Moran, confronted U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) at a town hall meeting and asked why he twice voted against a measure to allow atheist chaplains in the military. Earlier this summer Democratic Rep. Rob Andrews of New Jersey presented an amendment to the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act that called …

I never thought this would happen, but hold on to your hats, I’m about to defend Richard Dawkins. Dawkins, the atheist provocateur, has stirred up a twit-storm among his followers and the rest of the Huffing-and-Puffington Post crowd after he Tweeted this about Islam’s lack of scientific achievement: “All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel …

T.S. Elliott, wrote, “The greatest proof of Christianity for others is not how far a man can logically analyze his reasons for believing, but how far in practice he will stake his life on his belief.” True enough, but we can apply this same truth to atheism: “The greatest proof of atheism for others is …

New Atheists Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris are often described as the “Unholy Trinity of Atheism.” When you add Daniel C. Dennett to the mix, the Unholy Trinity becomes the Four Horsemen of the New Atheism. Even in their atheism these atheists can’t escape religion. They are defined by religion. Even the name …
