"Incidentally, Bekll, my wife, my boss, and my best friend all hate Dawkins because he makes Atheists look bad. I don't think you can call Zira on that."
How can an atheist make atheists look bad? We`re NOT a group! He doesn`t speak for himself as an atheist, but objectively viewing the world and why irrationality doesn`t belong in reality. He explains the science behind evolution.
That`s pretty much it. Of course he`s not the voice for atheists, every atheist has a his/her own opinion about everything because after "lack of belief in god" anything goes for who atheists are!

Sigh, ok in one post now in an attempt to bring some of this in line.
My point was that the same prejudices are coming into play here, as come in to play with anyone who is prejudiced against any other group, of course I picked the worst examples, that's why Godwin`s law exists.
If I said "You`re like an angry Sunderland supporter vs a NU supporter" 90% of the people here would be "Eh?", you would be "and..." and my point would be wasted.
Everyone knows the Nazis, nobody says "So?" to Nazis. Effect: Godwins law exists.
(Also, if you want a serious debate, pehaps don`t open up with a snide comment? "Saying as my opponent cannot refute my points" Appeals to authority: "I`ve had many deep conversations with Christians and I was one"). and so on.
Incidentally, Bekll, my wife, my boss, and my best friend all hate Dawkins because he makes Atheists look bad. I don`t think you can call Zira on that.
