A very happy birthday Richard (I still find myself wanting to type "Professor Dawkins").

This site is amazing, and I say that as a user of the internet since the 80s. I have learned more here in the past year than in the previous decade of my (admittedly part-time) career in science.

My thanks to you, and best wishes to everyone involved in this site, and your campaigns for science and reason.

Happy B-day! I'd say "make a wish", but I think we're on the same page on that one... ;)

It is just a theory that it's your birthday. How can you prove that you weren't "intelligently gestated"?

Happy birthday, professor! And what better birthday activity than another chance to beat up on Expelled? is the only movie website to list Expelled as an upcoming release (IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, and Box Office Mojo all fail to list it, a good indicator of just how little buzz the movie is getting outside the science/creationist blogosphere). On its listing page, they offer a reader poll asking you to anticipate how good/bad the movie will be. Everybody needs to head on over there and give it an "F: vile"! :-)

Happy Birthday, Professor Dawkins! Although we have never met, watching your videos and reading your material has helped me come completely out of the darkness of religion, superstition, etc. I will have a toast for you today. Here's to many, many more years, Richard.

Happy birthday!

I'm from Norway, and yesterday a Norwegian televison channel had a special on a book show, about atheism. Obviously Richard was there. Loved the way you combatted the critics from our Norwegian intellectual Thomas Hylland Eriksen! Even though I generally like Hylland, his points were not the best yesterday (whenever it was recorded.) You were "unimpressed" you said, and so was I.

Anywho... Keep ut the great work! And thank you very much for this incredibly good site!

and lead him not into temptation as
he's perfectly capable of finding it for himself
and I know you won't like it but please
can we have him for ever and ever coz
he's the MAN. Srsly.

Many Happy Returns Richard. Have a great day.

Happy birthday Richard!
As i wrote one year ago, words can not express how much i appreciate what you are doing. Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to us all.

Religion is the conviction that the emperor wasn't nude after all.

Please come and visit Canada once you're through with the USA tour. There are a lot of people up here who need your kind of enlightenment.

May the next 67 years or so be as fulfilling and well spent as the previous ones.
