Dawkins on Politicians' Anti-Evolution Stance

Dawkins was on Fareed Zakaria's GPS program and scolded all GOP candidates for not believing in a scientifically established fact: evolution. When Zakaria referred to evolution as a "theory," Dawkins advised against use of that word since the creationist crowd has seized on "theory" as a proposition, not yet proved. He does not yield from his position, that evolution is fact. Dawkins has also eschewed mention of the fossil record in arguments for evolution, probably aware some…

The resurrection of Lazarus

and many others recorded in various holy or not so holy books did not occur.

Could things have so changed in our times that people no longer walk from the dead, and whenever such are reported, they are met with shock and disbelief?

I argue here that no resurrection could have taken place, and that the circumstantial evidence points to a negative verdict on all the…

Where are the honest atheists

Damon Linker, a writer[?] for The Week, posits that we no longer are honest about our atheism.
