Dawkins losing the plot: atheist fundamentalism

Professor Richard Dawkins, who Fr John Hunwicke once described rather accurately as 'a Protestant atheist,'  seems to have  finally lost the plot. 
Having spent so much time, energy and what is left of a very decent scientific reputation in putting forward the case for godlessness (literally), he has finally and fatally overstated his case and joined the ranks of the fundamentalists - there is no God and everyone who disagrees with me is a rogue, a liar or a criminal. 
It's all very sad - we must pray for him all the harder.
[Here] and a video (health warning attached in these days beforeChristmas)  here


  1. Did Dawkins ever have a plot to lose?

    I do find his latest missive rather offensive though but at least I can take comfort in the fact that the vehicle for his outpourings isn't mainstream television as in previous years. Maybe the media is losing their fascination with him.

  2. Dickie the scientist turned polemicist has entered the realm of self-parody with this one ... & NB that he abandons all claims of empiricism, justifying his claims on the basis of knowing intuitively that they are right! Thanks for alerting me to this, Father - I've done a post on it myself with a link to yours.

    Merry Christmas!
