“Faith is One of the World’s Great Evils,” Declares Man Who Does Not Believe in Evil
Oxford University, England—Finally some good news in this world! In a stunning rebuke of all faiths everywhere, but especially of the really stupid ones, like Christianity, Professor Richard Dawkins has declared,
Faith is one of the world’s great evils, comparable to the smallpox virus but harder to eradicate.—Richard Dawkins bruises the heels of Christians in “The Humanist”
But Dawkins, a scholar of great renown and indubitable virtue, made sure to go further than that. Christians, believing in their sky daddy, hold to outdated beliefs that humanity must stamp out—and Dawkins made sure to smush one of those dumb beliefs with great vigor:
There is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.—Richard Dawkins with a slam-dunk against faith in “River out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life”
Dawkins continued to defend the faith of unfaith, and the virtue of there being no virtues, pointing out that Christians, having the brains of earwigs and the misguided morals of braindead bonobos, still cling to even worse outdated beliefs like free will.
Yes, the concept is illogical—a serial killer is responsible for his actions? I think not, buddy. Child rapists could have chosen to not rape kids? Yeah right, bozo. School shooters could have just studied for finals instead? Scram, stupid.
And don’t get us going on the evils of people like Mother Teresa, CS Lewis, Martin Luther King, Jr.—well, we’d go on, but we’re already vomiting wildly. Those evil people were known for viciously and brazenly spreading faith in some being that definitely doesn’t exist. Unlike the others, they should probably be held accountable for their sins. They, after all, have spread thoughts which have killed millions, unlike atheists such as Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, and other greats, who have only acted to better this world.
Dawkins flung a crushing blow to “free will” in a televised interview with atheist comedian Ricky Gervais, deftly pointing out,
I feel as though I have free will, even if I don’t…Yes. It wasn’t me that did the murder, it was my neurons and my genes. [To which Tommy Flanagan can be heard saying the in the background, “Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket.” —ed]—Dawkins in a logically coherent chat with Ricky Gervais, just crushing it.
Still, laud him as we do, Dawkins’ delivery is a little less fire-and-brimstone than we’d like. He explained this misstep, saying that he’s moderated his delivery after reading “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”
“I used to call for having all the Christians drowned, hanged, pitchforked, or really just whatever way was the fastest and wouldn’t keep you from lunchtime tea,” Dawkins remarked. “But maybe I’ve grown soft. Now I suggest that one simply not ‘interact with their arguments, instead mock them, ridicule them, in public…with contempt.‘ Much nicer, don’t you think?”
Some stupid pseudo-intellectual buffoon like John Lennox or something asked Dawkins how we can blame people for believing in God when their molecules make them do it. Dawkins quickly beat back the barely-evolved Jesus-believer, replying with some barb, “Yeah, well your confusion was determined by your molecules, too. And to be frank, I don’t talk to Christians…especially the confused ones, which is all of them. Harumph!” He then stormed off, forgetting a bit of scone that he hadn’t finished, as all the molecules in the universe had pre-determined.
We should all be grateful for Richard Dawkins, at least if that’s what the universe has determined. And who can argue with that?
