Go to: Evolution indoctrination at OU

The writer must have worked really hard to cram in so much nonsense. It's so densely packed with insanity. There's not one word that doesn't add to the craziness. Wonderful economy of drivel. This person must have been practising for years to get his incorrectness this tight.

Please, someone, make them stop. Please. It's not even funny anymore. It's just exhausting reading this stuff.

Go to: Richard Dawkins on Al Jazeera English

How refreshing to see Dawkins questioned by a TV interviewer who listens to him, asks objective questions in a spirit of true journalism, and has obviously researched The God Delusion beforehand.

It is fascinating to compare the Al-Jazeera coverage (albeit the English Al-Jazeera coverage) with that of many US networks, and recall how most of those US networks claim that Al Jazeera is a pit of seething fundamentalist propaganda. I think this contrast between their respective treatments of Dawkins is very illuminating.

I'm also very impressed by the way Dawkins slightly modifies his tone here, presumably bearing in mind that there is a large muslim audience. His precise wording is a masterclass in reasonability.
