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 religious gullibles claim God put fossils in the earth "to fool the Darwinists." Instead, he points to the record of DNA, which he rightfully claims a much more potent argument for Darwinism. "If Darwin were alive today [to see our findings] he'd be pleased, I think." OK, so it was a book appearance. I for one want to read his new book. I've only read The God Delusion.

Zakaria did not challenge Dawkins too vigorously, and Dawkins was the perfect gentleman. Atheists "angry." Ha!

I've read most of his books; couldn't stop after "The Selfish Gene." There does seem to be a lot of haters when it comes to his views on Islam, and possibly both sides of that argument are correct in some areas. 

Dawkins' is following through a thought that many atheists agree with, and that is going after the enablers as well as the extremists of said religion. If Islam moderates will not contain the extremists, then you have to go after them all.

The attack on Atheists like Dawkins is not coming from the usual suspects like the Christian right, but sadly its also coming from fellow liberals and from my own folks, Leftists. They accuse us of  Islamophobia  and even Racism. When they, like me have had there heads kicked in by fascists on the streets of the east end of London defending Asians from the National front and other Fascists maybe then they can call themselves anti racists. They confuse criticism of Islam and its doctrines with racism.

I wouldn't be able to talk, because I'm not good at it in the best of times, but in this case, it would be more like thbbbbthbbbbth..............hahaha!!!

Dawkins is an amazing man and never fails to amaze me like our universe. He also has a very good trait, to stay calm despite all the harassment he takes. If I could ever meet him, I would just be amazed to talk to this fantastic man.

Mr. Dawkins has enormous patience, & I admire anything he has to say or write.
