My guess is that nobody came in second in this race. Well deserved.

Congratulations from me too, Professor.

I'm sure this gave you as much of a lift, in the middle of your hectic schedule, as it gives so many of your students, converts and admirers.

You are a great public educator worldwide, in all your fields, and fully deserve the awards you earn.

Your Foundation, spokespeople & projects reflect what so many of us hope to achieve for humanity, while widening the spreading cracks in the dams of delusion, and making the quest for freedom easier for all.

There's still a long and winding road ahead, but the destination is becoming more possible now, thanks...

Great ! I waited 2 days to see if RDFRS US would post this (very) appropriate news item...with nothing forthcoming. So I submitted it myself...

I've got a ticket to the Conference and the dinner. I'm looking forward to seeing RD again and other BHA members. This is a bonus for me as the award wasn't announced when I bought the ticket. A well deserved award.

What an excellent year in which to receive such recognition. A sort of Royal Olympic Reason award. Nice! Gold medal for reason and carrying the torch worldwide!

Cheers, Professor Dawkins. Well deserved.

Incidentally, this coming Monday is the 85th Birthday of my prime candidate for "Disservice to Humanism" Award winner, our old friend Joseph Ratzinger.

Nicely done. This is great news. :-)

And my own congratulations to you, Professor Dawkins! Your work and campaigning has inspired so many, myself included. I daresay you will continue to work and to inspire more people for many years yet with your example. You've earned this recognition.

I suggested RD to the knight hood selection commitee, for services to religion!

Some of my favorite speeches of Richard's have been moments when he gives accolades to others (Dan Dennett, Christopher Hitchens.) It's nice to see Richard being honoured himself! Congratulations on this well-deserved nod from BHA.

Heartiest congratulations, Richard. There is no finer person eligible for this award. Your efforts at raising the consciousness of people across the globe towards the understanding of science, and the importance of secularism and humanism, are unmatched. See you this week at the Opera House!

Well done that man! We stand with you against the ever increasing, nauseating tide of religiosity pushing it's way into our public life - just like an uninvited boor at a dinner party.
