Go to: Melvyn Bragg attacks Richard Dawkins' 'atheist fundamentalism'

Melvyn, really!? You oughtn't speak without thinking first. Nobody likes to see some old, demented bloke Bragging about his ignorance. Just because you've got more hair than Mr Dawkins does not give you the right to flaunt it in such an unbecoming way. What would your barber think? Tut! tut! Melvyn; you've let the whole of the South Bank down. Pillock!!

If Dr Boghossian were debating that slippery snake, Lane Craig, I am sure he would be humiliated, thus rendering all his cogent and obvious arguments redundant; a pity, but true. As an ardent Hitchien myself, it should be crystal clear how much people are swayed by people, not by their propositions. This guy here totally misses the target of his proposed thesis, by simply giving a lacklustre performance. My point is this: Michael Jackson had bags of charisma plus talent; Hitler had great impact through his passion of delivery and belief; Lane Craig is mesmerising no matter how ridiculous and intellectually challenging his propositions; Hitchens was undeniably brilliant because of his knowledge and charm etc. etc. We humans operate on emotional connections, even if reason tells us that what we believe cannot possibly be true; therefore, truth will never usurp the primeval need humans have for bullshit delivered passionately and coherently. If I could change just one thing about religious believers, it would be is this: whatever faith you adhere to, PLEASE keep it to yourself and out of the public/political spheres. If you have found God, then great; now just go away and die in peace, and then we’ll all be happy Halleduckinglujah!!!!
