Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins
This isn't on here just because of the (brilliant) religion programme that Richard had on channel 4 over the last 2 mondays, i've been digging this chap for a while. Described as "Darwin's Rottweiler", Dawkins perfectly critiques our faith in God and any chance of altruistic gene behaviour. If you haven't done so already, I recommend that you go out and buy "The Selfish Gene", read it, love it, and realise how true it is...

cheers. i think dawkins should somehow be on the gcse syllabus of every school in the country, and certainly if we're still going to allow exclusively christian/ muslim /religious boo boo schools in england, there needs to be some proper educating going on about where we came from and who we are that isnt religious hogwash

i wouldnt, no-one could spell his name when it came to examinations. but yeh those pesky kids could learn a thing or four from his moustachioed syphillis ridden frame. but i still think dawkins offers answers in the most convincing and approachable slash intuitive manner

state/religion seperation should be in the magna carta like it is in the american constitution. children should be taught education outside school not inside. my mum has a friend who has pulled her 11 year old kid out of school and is home schooling him with a religious eduction. he will have no friends, no life experience and no gcse's/a levels/eligibility to enter university. it makes me real angry

of interest: clause 11 of the magna carta says that if you die and owe money to Jews then your wife need not pay back the debt
