← Why Richard Dawkins is still an atheist

There is obviously no Excuse for the intellectual dishonesty of people like Lennox as well as the countless journalists who engage in this kind of quote mining. Still I kind of wish the good professor wouldn't say things like that. As Dawkins himself pointed out, Einstein was annoyed when people mistook his obsessive God-talk to mean he was a believer, to which Dawkins - rightly in my opinion - responded (from memory): "But what did he expect? The hunger to misunderstand should have been obvious to him".

What can you expect indeed...

How about:

Everything you say can and will be used against you.
