Does Richard Dawkins exist?

"Does Richard Dawkins exist? Many people would say yes. Terry Tommyrot thinks otherwise. In a revealing interview on "The Big Questions", Dr. Tommyrot explains how belief in Richard Dawkins is, in fact, a harmful delusion, and how it can be explained scientifically."

The Conclusion Of The Matter
No, Richard Dawkins does not exist. I have never seen him. Science has given a full and satisfying explanation of the book alleged to be his handiwork. It is but a collection of fortuitously ordered a's, b's and c's, recombined from previous patterns. There is the alphabet, there is a book of nursery rhymes and there is "The God Delusion" - and one developed from the other, though some of the details of which is the most primitive remain to be sorted out. The links between them may still be missing, but Science will have that worked out at any moment. Anyone who doubts this fact is either lying, mad or stupid (or wicked, but I'd rather not think about that possibility).
Having settled the case, I congratulated myself on my acute use of logic and reason. After lunch, I have another pressing question to tackle.
Do I exist?
And The Interpretation Thereof...
Hyper-scepticism is a very easy weapon to wield - against whatever you like. However, its champions routinely wield it only against things they dislike, whilst taking others for granted... convenient, but hardly the way of actual "rational thought" or "science".
Hyper-sceptical arguments require little intellectual capacity to construct - and have little value for those whose aim is to seriously discuss rather than just mindlessly oppose.
