Comment 43 by Richard Dawkins

Who was it said you might as well wear a tasteful little gallows or guillotine or electric chair?

Wasn't that Hitch? I could swear it was but can't think where I heard him say it. My dad made the same point to me when I was a child.

Go to: The "So" meme

Comment 35, "so here's the thing..."

I'm pretty sure John Harris started a question with this when he interviewed Richard at the Guardian some time last year. Something along the lines of: "so here's the thing, I'm an agnostic..." etc. I remember cringing when he said it and thinking that Richard was probably cringing too!

Go to: The problem in public life isn’t Islam, but religion itself

Celtic Atheist's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by Celtic Atheist

Can't help thinking that maybe the Tories are quite happy to kick off a public debate about religion now as it distracts attention from the fact that the bankers have recently (again) awarded themselves eye-watering bonuses out of tax payers' money, while everyone else struggles with the cuts.

Go to: The Sins of the Fathers [Also in Polish]

Thought I was familiar with all of Richard's books but the Daily Mail referred to one I'd never heard of:

"But Professor Dawkins, author of The Selfish Game, told The Sunday Telegraph that linking him with the slave trade was a 'smear tactic'."

Or has the title mutated?
