tatripp: "he seems like he leads a sad life."

Clicking on tatripps profile, I see he lists himself as "Religion: Christian" and "Politics: Conservative".

While I'm no Dawkins fanboy, I think I see what's happened here...

tatripp: "he seems like he leads a sad life."

Have you seen his life? He's world-famous, has written best-selling books, and is married to a hot actress (Lalla Ward, who played Romana, one of the Doctor's companions on "Doctor Who"). He was introduced to her by a mutual friend, Douglas Adams. You know, the guy who wrote "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (among other things)? Dawkins flies all over the world giving talks, having fascinating debates, meeting famous and interesting people, and working on various projects.

If that's a "sad life", sign me up for one of those!

I read a good part of The God Delusion. It was so full of vitriol, bad arguments and plainly untrue assertions I couldn't finish it.

What surprises me is that he's so esteemed by people who like to think of themselves as rational.

immorality ≠ suffering. If this were true it wouldn't be immoral for a peeping tom to spy on you in the shower given that Mr.Peeper didn't get caught. For if this peeping tom didn't get caught you would never know you were being watched and thereby never suffer (from embarrassment,violation of privacy ect...)and only the peeping tom would receive pleasure. However, most people think it is immoral to spy on someone in the shower.

@LillianDulci. You are correct, I did not think that statement all the way through. What I was trying to say, is quite similar to how you put it. It's not that they are not true Christians, it really doesn't take much to be one. And, also true, that they could have been raised as Christians. What I mean to say is that no matter how long some people are Christian, they never realize what it is all about. For instance, the person we are to emulate our lives after, Jesus Christ, never attacked "sinners", they were with him the most, and followed him if they desired. The part Christians tend to not realize is that Jesus was attacking the church when he was at his most aggressive moments. This is because the people he was attacking were tying a weight around the necks of their followers that the leaders could not and did not even carry. True Christianity is a continuous walk to be like Christ, which is difficult to attain, but these letters show these people are merely practicing

Yeah, why would anyone oppose a belief that is all about peace, and love, and telling others that you hope they die slowly and are tortured forever for not believing as they do?

"Unfortunately not every Christian has been one for very long, and do not realize yet what it means to be one, and that's all these e-mail show. "

Huh? I'm willing to bet that most (if not all) of these emails came from people who were raised as Christian's from birth. People tend to take things more seriously when they actively made a choice. But really you're just trying to give that "oh but they're not true Christians like me" argument.

@CaptKangaroo you realise if it is a food product and it is not certified halal and kosher then it may be illegal to use it on people of Islamic or Jewish faith...

I'd like to go further with that.

If by salvation, we're talking about a perfected existence, then I'm certain he believes in salvation through science, and completely lost as to why he should deny that desire. Yes, he feels that perfected existence will only last 60-100 years per individual, but what is wrong with that? That's plenty of time for most to experience what they wish of perfection.

Meanwhile, I'm certain he has little to no hatred of christians. I'm not talking about WBC, I'm talking about kneels by the bed every night since he was four and would never intentionally hurt anyone in his life. There's nothing wrong with christians, it's the ridiculous notion these people are good because God made them good. Take God away from these people through science, and they'll still be model citizens.

Hence the focus on education.

The problem, Stand4Christ, isn't that you're dumb because you're one dumb idea, it's that you're so passive aggressive with that idea.

I mean, really. Send him an e-mail specifically asking "Do you believe in salvation through science?" I'm willing to bet he says "Of course." He practically says as much when he states he hopes religion is dead in fifty years.

I honestly don't even understand why you think that notion would be offensive to him. You call him a genius, but assume he can't distinguish between a christian and christianity? Christianity is a horribly ignorant, childish, comic book fantasy. A christian can easily be a pleasant, life long friend, who we want in society, assuming we're talking about nice "cracker" christians.

And really, the "hate" mail is just as likely to come from trolling athiests as it is christians imo.

Hearing Dawkins say "drat ng" is the funniest thing in the WORLD.
