Richard Dawkins Exhibiting Neo-Paganism-Atheism, Childhood Rejection of God, Self-Professed Erudition, etc.
Below is a video of Richard Dawkins being interviewed by fellow atheist Andrew Denton (transcript is found here).
This video will automatically play parts 1-3.
Part 1 begins with neo-Pagan-atheism.
Dawkins also plays the role of Woe is me, they say that I am arrogant but I am not; now to the clip of a mean Christian calling me arrogant.
They show Ted Haggard being quite reasonable and they did not bother showing that Dawkins had likened Haggard’s church service to a Nazi rally—part of the reason that I gave Dawkins the Reductio ad Hitlerum award.
Circa 0:8:30 into part 1, Dawkins runs out of steam, gets that deer in headlights look and stammers into areas where he obviously ought not.
He was asked about a statement he made during Douglas Adams’ funeral. One thing that they did not note is that Dawkins had told the, by then obviously deceased, Adams that he misses him. But just who was Dawkins addressing? Is this atheist necromancy or vestigial ancestor worship?
At 0:2:34 into part 2, Dawkins simply ask, “Are all the questions going to be like this?”
Richard Dawkins also mentions a few times believing only in things for which we have evidence; without providing evidence to support that view and without admitting that which I outlined in the following essays: that even the hardest of the hard sciences is premised upon axioms which are assumed or intuited and not evidenced or proved: Atheism and Science - Is There a Relation?, part 1
In part 3 Dawkins is asked about morality and falls apart as he recalls his incendiary and illogical atheist talking points about how troublesome those religious people are who think that morality extends into what people do in private and or with their sexual organs.
This is the blind leading the even blinder into taking an ice-pick in their hands and bursting their eardrums while they are at it—have a go at your tongue as well and end up completely senseless? (hint, are pedophilia and rape in private perfectly acceptable?!?!)
This topic and his fallacious claims are covered here: Too Sexy for My Theology? On the New Atheist Obsession with Sex
Ecce Homo’s Commandments (see # 12 “Enjoy your own sex life (so long as it damages nobody else) and leave others to enjoy theirs in private whatever their inclinations, which are none of your business.”)
He admits that he has “faith” in other scientist and has already admitted having “faith” in natural selection to fill in the gaps of his knowledge.
On one level I agree that if I was being interviewed I would not want to bother talking about myself.
