Dick Dawkins: "What’s to prevent us from saying Hitler wasn’t right?"
That's right, that's what he said, he said that, that's what he said....
I’m constantly on the alert for changes of mind, but extremely skeptical that those changes will just happen to be in the direction of embracing a god of Bronze Age camel herders from the Middle East,”First of all asshole we herded sheep, not camels.
He's an Evangelical, which is so abhorrent coming from them but just FINE coming from this fucker, right?
"I think my ultimate goal would be to convert people away from particular religions toward a rationalist skepticism, tinged with … no, that’s too weak," he said, correcting himself, "… glorying in the universe and in life. Yes, I would like people to be converted away from religion to skepticism."But enough about me let's talk about me...
Obviously the dude has not a clue what is going on in the world if he thinks slavery is dead and women and children are "safe" now....
“What defines your morality?” I asked with genuine curiosity. There was an extended pause as Dawkins considered the question carefully. “Moral philosophic reasoning and a shifting zeitgeist.” He looked off and then continued.Darvangelist Propaganda and the Evolution of Belief
“We live in a society in which, nowadays, slavery is abominated, women are respected, children can’t be abused—all of which is different from previous centuries.” He leaned forward as he warmed to his subject.
“Yes, absolutely fascinating.” His response was immediate. “What’s to prevent us from saying Hitler wasn’t right? I mean, that is a genuinely difficult question. But whatever [defines morality], it’s not the Bible. If it was, we’d be stoning people for breaking the Sabbath.”
If science claims to want religion to stay the hell out of it's business then science would do well to stay the hell out of religion's business. Why should any scientists give a rat's ass what you BELIEVE? Because their end game is to own and direct what you believe, which has shit to do with science... but has all to do with power.Climbing Mount Agenda Without a Rope

IT'S NOT FASCISM WHEN HEEEEEE DOES IT, MELANIE!
Afterwards, I asked Dawkins whether he had indeed changed his position and become more open to ideas which lay outside the scientific paradigm. He vehemently denied this and expressed horror that he might have given this impression. But he also said other things which suggested to me that some of his own views simply don't meet the criteria of empirical evidence that he insists must govern all our thinking.God's Revenge on Darwin? Dick Dawkins!
Dawkins, Hitler and Stalin
Dawkins on his "shifting moral zeitgeist" - Hitler wasn't really that evil at all, you see. Stalin either!
On page 273 Dawkins states, “There is no doubt that, as a matter of fact, Stalin was an atheist. . . . But there is no evidence that his atheism motivated his brutality.” Is that another way of saying Christianity motivates brutality? There is enough evidence in the Bible from Christianity’s Founder and his apostles that condemns evil in any form – but for now let’s just remind ourselves of the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus stretches the principle of goodness from mere acts to thinking evil against someone to being guilty of murder – the thought is as good as the deed (Matthew 5).UK TV Review: Dick Dawkins: Evangelical Darwinist
It is unfortunate that a scientist of such high standing should be guilty of selective thinking and deliberately abusing the trust of his readers whom he must assume to be biblically illiterate and dependent on him for objectivity and honesty. I suspect that Dawkins got his information on Hitler from the Straight Dope website. After reading Dawkins on Hitler it is certainly familiar reading.
Since he scripted the show himself, as well as presenting it, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that, by my reckoning, it took him about 45 seconds to divert the programme from a discussion of Darwin's genius to a vehicle for the wider dissemination of Dawkins' own much-publicised and already well-known anti-religious polemicism.Charlton Heston visits the Ministry of Science

Dick Dawkins: Faith schools are child abuse
Unless of course it is him doing the indoctrinating and his agenda being forced.... it is not fascism when heeeeee does it, ya know!
"What I'm passionately against is indoctrination. That is wicked, that is evil, that is child abuse," he continued.Dick Dawkins: "Eugenics may not be so bad!"
Dawkins himself now says that certain ideas of eugenics may not be that bad after all. In a letter to the editor of the Sunday Herald (Scotland), Dawkins says that, while one would not want to be seen agreeing with Hitler, eugenics can be practical and desirable. He writes that, ‘if you can breed cattle for milk yield, horses for running speed, and dogs for herding skill, why on Earth should it be impossible to breed humans for mathematical, musical or athletic ability?UK: The Lowdown: essential guide to the Liberal Democrat party conference

VIDEO: DICK DAWKINS ON THE IMMORALITY OF ISRAELI SCHOOL CHILDREN
Richard Dawkins discusses how the religious beliefs held by Jewish school children in Israel distort their moral perception of genocide.
Or he DID... The video has been REMOVED.
"JEWS MONOPOLIZE AMERICAN POLICY"
Yes, Dick.... we are dumb fuck camel herders monopolizing policy like mad MFers.
A top British scientist drew fire from American Jewish organizations on Monday, after remarking that the American Jewish lobby is "monopolizing American foreign policy." Professor Richard Dawkins, a leading evolutionary biologist at Oxford University, was quoted by the British Guardian newspaper as saying last week: "When you think about how fantastically successful the Jewish lobby has been, though, in fact, they are less numerous I am told - religious Jews anyway - than atheists and (yet they) more or less monopolize American foreign policy as far as many people can see. So if atheists could achieve a small fraction of that influence, the world would be a better place."Dawkins: Jews Control US Policy
A number of Jewish leaders responded immediately, with ADL head Abe Foxman calling Dawkin’s remarks “classic anti-Semitism.” Malcom Hoenlein, a senior official in the Conference of Presidents of Major American Organizations, was quoted by Yediot Acharonot as saying the statements represented “the poisoning of the elite.” Even top scientists can “demonstrate ignorance and fall victim to misinformation,” said Hoenlein, adding “This impact spreads within the intellectual community, and then trickles down to the general populace.”July, 2002: Dawkins had signed the British Academic's boycott of Israel:
Prof Baker is one of the signatories of a British-led petition of more than 700 academics from several countries launched by Steven Rose, an Open University professor. Signatories including Oxford professors Colin Blakemore and Richard Dawkins say they "can no longer in good conscience continue to cooperate with official Israeli institutions, including universities".HUFFPO: David Berreby: Richard Dawkins' Jewish Question
In short, quite a muddle. I cannot tell who we secularists should be trying to copy -- lobbyists, ethnically Jewish Americans, believers in a deity or people who hold to traditional practice without reflecting on ultimate questions. Only one thing is clear: By casually echoing the rhetoric of anti-Semites, Dawkins has made a fool of himself and, by extension, those of us for whom he claims to speak.Richard Dawkins Issues a fatwa against Religion
I happened to be in the United Kingdom when a bizarre television series entitled "The Root of All Evil?" was aired in primetime. Presented by Oxford University Professor and avowed atheist Dr Richard Dawkins, the series explored the evils of religion.So.... there you have the man the blog you used to love is shilling for. At least as bad as cozying up to the VB - if not worse. The hypocrisy is staggering. Seems to me Dawkins is just pissed off cause that damn dirty Jew Jesus is bigger than he is...
What was so offensive about the series was the disdain Dawkins showed for any sort of faith. During the programme, which Lord Winston says nearly provoked him to smash his television set, my mind travelled to the story of the late Rabbi Hugo Gryn during Chanukah in Lieberrose concentration camp. Gryn's father, salvaging a tiny morsel of butter in the camp to symbolise the endurance of the Maccabees, said a man can live without food and water but he cannot live without hope. When someone asked me why I attend religious services I like to say I do it for someone who died in a camp and could never enjoy another festival.
Although one would not wish to lump him with these figures, Dawkins does come from the same culture that allowed to operate freely Oswald Mosley, the lifetime anti-Semitic campaigner Dowager Lady Birdwood and Holocaust-denier David Irving. The fact that Little Britain and Big Brother attract huge audiences and that churches are empty is a commentary on the state of British spiritual life. France is indeed fiercely secular but does not seem to suffer the absence of soul that has crept into British life since the me generation replaced the Greatest Generation of the Blitz.
