Dawkins’ latest book “The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution”, reveals an enormous amount of new evidence, facts, calm clear reasoning, fair play and true altruistic objective motives from the part of your fave atheist … or not.
Let’s see, here’s how the article from the Times on the book was presented:
“Creationists, now they’re coming for your children”
Sounds like the latest Stephen King title doesn’t it. This is fear mongering propagandizing at its worst. Notice the use of a key technique in propaganda spreading– that of the PANIC HEADLINE!.
Omg!! “THEY’RE COMING FOR YOUR CHILDREN!”
But hey, when you’re an atheist trying to sell something to the public, anything goes right?
The most hypocritical thing about all this tripe, is that Dawkins’ own university was founded by creationists! But “BEWARE Oh public”, says the Times! Creationists might build schools, hospitals, charity orgs, clinics and they may have founded the modern scientific method and most of the great scientists of history were creationists, but BEWARE! These evil people, like Newton, Maxwell, Pupin, von Braun, Leibniz, Boole, etc., are secretly planning to take over your minds!
Talk about demonizing the opposition, another propaganda technique that is supposed to NEVER be used in scientific controversies! (Here’s where the inane, ‘no controversy here’, nonsense claim comes in). Dawkins has lost it big time with such ridiculous sensationalist headlines.
This is truly risible. This book is twisted pseudo-science, wishful thinking, terrible philosophy and impoverished theology that only an ignoramus will swallow whole without question.
If the title doesn’t do it for you well here’s some quotes:
People who reject the theory of evolution should be placed on a level with Holocaust deniers
Imagine you are a teacher of more recent history, and your lessons on 20th-century Europe are boycotted, heckled or otherwise disrupted by well-organised, well-financed and politically muscular groups of Holocaust-deniers. …They are vocal, superficially plausible and adept at seeming learned. They are supported by …Imagine that, as a teacher of European history, you are continually faced with belligerent demands to “teach the controversy”, and to give “equal time” to the “alternative theory” that the Holocaust never happened but was invented by a bunch of Zionist fabricators.
This book is necessary. I shall be using the name “historydeniers” for those people who deny evolution: who believe the world’s age is measured in thousands of years rather than thousands of millions of years, and who believe humans walked with dinosaurs.
I shall from time to time refer to the history-deniers as the “40percenters”.
Notice the comparison of a scientific theory to a historical fact. Two entirely different domains are brought in to cloud the issues and confuse the readers.
Theories are meant to be questioned, scrutinized and debated – not historical facts. And this even the more intelligent atheists know.
So now that we have been assured by reverend Dawkins that anyone who doubts Darwinism is equal in guilt to a holocaust denier, and now that we have seen the light of his new strategy for crushing all opposition by comparing those who doubt Darwin to those that doubt the Nazis ever did any wrong to Jews and others, I suppose we must all rest our case and concede, right? Well no, of course not.
If I look at the evidence that tells me so very clearly that neo-Darwinism is a crock and the greatest scientific blunder since the flat earth (now strangely making a comeback) I must not only be wrong but a history denier equally guilty with the holocaust deniers! (though I can go and see the gas chambers and furnaces any day I wish to)
Talk again about demonizing the opposition by aiming for the sympathetic heart, among which no one sympathizes more than the creationist Jews and Christians! Dawkins now reigns supreme for vile lies and attempting public manipulation.
Worse, Dawkins himself wrote,
“[the universe] has precisely the properties we should expect if there is at bottom no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pointless indifference.”
Think about that for at least 1 second. He claims there is no good or evil, no purpose. So, um gee Dick, why do you imply that both the Holocaust and its deniers are somehow wrong, evil, not good? Can’t this guy see his own hypocrisy? You can’t have it both ways. Either there is a God with moral character and demands upon moral agents, and humans are indeed moral agents, or there is no such thing as evil or good. This is pure trickery on Dawkins part. He believes there is no evil but calls Darwin doubters “or wicked”!? The duplicity and self-contradiction are striking. It’s amazing that anyone is still blinded by this shyster.
The phrase, “There is no God, and Richard Dawkins is his prophet”, comes to mind.
Dawkins of course is a master manipulator – a mind conditioner. He makes sure not to stop his fanatical ravings to give the readers time to actually think about such lame accusations and foolish comparisons. Most of his fans won’t anyway because they let their high priests think for them. Few of the new atheist crowd can think for themselves.
It’s just a question of time before he and his goons actually start demanding the removal of such persons from society as “genetically defective”, “menaces”. Indeed, such has already been proposed.
Then he smoothly slips into a somewhat more “reasonable” mode claiming that we have all the evidence we need:
“Evolution is an inescapable fact, … Evolution is within us, around us, between us, …. Given that, in most cases, we don’t live long enough to watch evolution happening before our eyes, we shall revisit the metaphor of the detective coming upon the scene of a crime after the event and making inferences. The aids to inference that lead scientists to the fact of evolution are far more numerous, more convincing, more incontrovertible, than any eyewitness reports that have ever been used, in any court of law, in any century, to establish guilt in any crime.” -my italics
Outside of the fact that this is truly hilarious, he now attempts to insure the poor beguiled
victim reader into believing that nothing else in all history has ever had the amount of evidence available that Darwinism has! Good grief Dawkins, are you senile, or just delusional and a raving fanatic? Yes, the man has clearly lost his mind, properly answers the title question.
Yet notice his use of the very phrase he so publicly deplores when used by Intelligent Design proponents – “inferences”.
He infers one thing, but a whole slew of other equally or more intelligent and equally or better educated detectives than himself infer something entirely different – not so curiously he “fails” to mention this fact.
He may fool the non thinking ones and fool easily those who already hate God, religion and any science that supports such by inference, i.e those who already have an “axe to grind” against anything that disturbs them in their materialist stupor. But he isn’t fooling the thinking, informed person at all.
Shame on this uncouth charlatan for writing such folderol in the name of science!
As any thinking, lucid person would have suspected, Dawkins new book does indeed contain something new – even more hysterical and highly injurious, false accusations against any and all who oppose the high priesthood of materialism’s origins myth -Darwinism.
I found it hard to believe when I read through his evidence for evolution, that he actually presents dog breeding as solid evidence for Darwinian evolution. Seriously? Now that is either incredibly low and deceptive of him or incredibly stupid. If animal breeding, which humans have been doing for thousands of years, tells us anything, it is that you can’t produce anything but a dog by breeding dogs. The taxonomic Family remains, no matter how much one attempts to produce anything else. Breeding thus shows that there are strict limits, genetic lines that cannot be crossed with success, even with the help of intelligent artificial selection.
So yes, Dawkins has either lost his mind -at least on this subject- or he is far more evil than most have suspected … or both.
