Found this excerpt from a book on Richard Dawkins.
I am personally in full agreement
"a paradise of a religionless world"
On "The God Delusion":-http://goliath.ecnext.com/coms2/gi_0...e-Dawkins.html
Some thoughts on the Dawkins paradise.(Religion)(Richard Dawkins )
SINCE SHORTLY AFTER my religious boarding school failed, despite what then appeared to me to be its chaplain's and principal's best efforts, to convert me to atheism, I have been looking, like some Bravo swaggering down the Rialto, for some atheist publication or argument that would be a foeman worthy of my intellectual steel.
Not with a great deal of luck so far. Most recently I came across a passage where Professor of Atheism (or whatever his title is) Richard Dawkins has written of his beautiful dream of a religionless world in which there would be:
No suicide bombers, no 9/11, no Crusades, no witch hunts, no Gunpowder Plot, no Indian partition, no Israeli/Palestine wars, no Serb/Croat/ Muslim massacres, no persecution of Jews as "Christ-killers," no northern Ireland "troubles," no shiny-suited bouffant-haired televangelists fleecing gullible people ... no Taliban to blow up ancient statues, no public beheading of blasphemers ...
Hardly testing or stretching one's intellect, is it?
Richard Dawkins Reads The God Delusion
But equally he features in many youtubes arguing evolution,
plus many on general science
plus many on social issues etc
(and all these could be discussed to advantage imo).
Incidentally, nothing I have heard him say has ever come across as outlandish to my ears. And I personally enjoy his wit. Maybe others would disagree.
