← Melvyn Bragg attacks Richard Dawkins' 'atheist fundamentalism'

Bragg argued that reason was not “the primary source of knowledge”.

Throwing reason out the window seems to work perfectly for Melvyn otherwise he would not be able to construct such hard hitting stupidity!

“Things come to us outside the realms of reason; intimations of love, surprise by joy, little pulses that we don’t know where they come from, we don’t know where they lead to, but they satisfy us or they make us despair. Dawkins shows no respect for religion at all.”

What does having complete ignorance and being really proud of it have to do with Richard showing respect for religion?

He said the King James Bible was the “great trigger” for bringing about modern democracy during the British civil wars of the 17th century and had enabled people to claim their rights.

Yes, it was a good job the King wasn't sticking his nose in the Scottish Church trying to reform it in 1638...none of it was motivated by religion was it Melvyn?

Also it is good to know that the King James Bible does NOT contain information on Unicorns too - that great book of knowledge and everything!

Sorry, but questioning ignorance is a good thing, Melvyn can twist it to make atheists look bad but the facts still remain the same!
