Go to: Richard Dawkins - Absolute Morality

Dragon Slayer's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by Dragon Slayer

Very good answer. It is one of those questions which could be answered in so many ways and he touched upon all the correct points. The problem is that the kinds of people who would ask such a question have obviously no idea about religious morality. I once answered the question in a similar way to a relative and mentioned the biblical stance on homosexuality as an example of Christian values that we reject and he denied that such a stance on homosexuality was even in the bible saying "if that was in he bible i think more people would know about it."

Happy Birthday Richard!!!

I am pleased to say that I have made girlfriend a fan of yours. She enjoyed TGSOE and TGD but when I showed her a video of you reading the opening lines from Unweaving the Rainbow she truely recognised how important and inspiring your message and work is.

Keep doing what you are doing and progress will be made.

Go to: A New Flea: The Selfish Genius: How Richard Dawkins Rewrote Darwin's Legacy by Fern Elsdon-Baker

does anyone know if Dawkins has made any reply to or comment on this book? i had a quick read through it whilst in waterstones the other day.

In response to Duff I am quite puzzled on how people can call Dawkins' attacks on religion as philosophically suspect. Having read some articles on Dawkins by philosophers I get the impression that they don't like fact that he doesn't go into too much detail when discussing the arguments for the existence of God. With the 'five ways' for example you could talk about them in great length and praise them as a major contribution the the philosophy of religion but still easily refute them. Dawkins, as he should, treats them in a scientific manner and doesn't bore the reader with unneeded detail.

In short Dawkins attacks are not philosophically unsound, its just that some professional philosophers don't want the final nail in the coffin on these arguments.
