DAWKINS: A CLOSER LOOK
simple paragraph on the first page of Dawkins' preface to his work, The
God Delusion, reveals glaringly that Richard Dawkins is
neither an objective scientist, nor a brilliant intellect and that he is
cunning and deceitful recruitment agent for the militant atheist army.
Dawkins starts his preface with a family anecdote. From
there he takes us to the first true "substantial" paragraph of his book. It
is in this most revealing paragraph that one can "immediately" see Dawkins’
glaring deficiencies and the true aims of his book. Let’s analyze the
paragraph together in detail and let’s get a glimpse into how intellectually
deficient and cunning this man truly is.
He begins the paragraph with,
suspect” (Good, cautious scientific language,
am sure—" (Oh well... No more
cautious language, but
"absolute certainty." Dawkins real
nature now comes out.)
there are lots of people out there who have been brought up in some religion
or other, are unhappy in it, don’t believe it, or are worried about the
evils that are done in its name; people who feel vague yearnings to leave
their parents’ religion and wish they could, but just don’t realize that
leaving is an option.”
The people Dawkins refers to are obviously people who
have a level of intelligence. They are "aware" that their religion is false;
they don’t believe it; they are concerned about “the evils that are done in
its name.” Clearly they are quite advanced intellectually. After all, they
have bought Richard's very thick and challenging book, therefore they must
be intelligent people. Yet, Dawkins tells us that they “don’t realize that
leaving is an option.” Is Richard thinking straight? Are they
intelligent people or are they stupid? Can such people not know that
leaving their parents’ religion is an option? Here is a man who is supposed
to be a “superior” scientist, logician, and writer who shows absurd
pseudo-logic from the start of his preface to his book.
“If you are one of them, this book is for
you. It is intended to raise your consciousness to the fact that to be an
atheist is a realistic aspiration, and a brave and splendid one.”
Now, let's be honest. Is the language used by Richard not
reminiscent of that of an army recruiter? It is obvious that what he is
seeking is "recruits" for his atheist army. Being an atheist “soldier” he
tells these ambivalent people is a “realistic aspiration.” Fighting with
Richard against the theistic hordes is also a “brave” aspiration and, “to
be humble about it,” a “splendid one.” Masterful recruitment ad, Richard --
He then goes on.
be an atheist who is happy, balanced, moral, and intellectually fulfilled.
This is my first of my consciousness raising messages.”
Yes, you heard right! Reject God and religion and you can be HAPPY. Perhaps,
Richard... until your health fails you. Until you start losing your loved
ones. Until you see the day of your departure get closer and closer. Until
you lie in bed with cancer and see no meaning for your suffering. Then,
Richard, will they still be happy?
You can also
“BALANCED” human being. Yes, a lack of divine direction, according to
Richard, will make you a balanced human being, because you have within you
the “capacity” to live a mentally and physically balanced lifestyle.
Religion may have kept you from this amazing life-enhancing gift. Reject
religion and you will have greater mental and physical health -- which are
the well-known results of a “balanced” lifestyle.
AND…you can also be a
“MORAL” human being. You see, what you have been told about needing God to
guide you, so as to be a moral being is
false. You can conceive “your own” ethical principles and you “can” and
“will” faithfully abide by those principles, no matter what temptations come
your way, because YOU ARE STRONG and you CAN be moral without any
irrational set of commandments hanging over you -- from a "mythical" being.
you reject God you can be, “INTELLECTUALLY FULFILLED.” Now, this one is
more difficult to figure out. What does he mean by this? My hunch is that what
he is really saying is that by being an atheist one becomes
intellectually “superior” to other intellectual "Lilliputians" who walk the
earth. The reason I am swaying in this direction is because
later on in the book Dawkins offers a new "humble" term to describe
Can any package be more
complete, therefore? Happiness; greater mental and physical health;
sainthood and intellectual superiority. Any takers?
Richard's "superior intellect," captured by a few simple sentences. No doubt
Richard can be a fine scientist and an intelligent being, if he were simply
to stay within the realm of strict Science. Unfortunately, in departing from
that realm and in becoming committed to a failed philosophy Richard has
rejected rationality and is blindly propagating foolishness, just as the
