Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religion is a powerful weapon that can be used because it persuades people to do things. And thus it can be used for good or ill. But it should not be a powerful weapon at all.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The truth is more magical – in the best and most exciting sense of the word – than any myth or made-up mystery or miracle. Science has its own magic: the magic of reality.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Science is the disinterested search for the objective truth about the material world.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “The theory of evolution by cumulative natural selection is the only theory we know of that is in principle capable of explaining the existence of organized complexity.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The Virgin Birth, the Resurrection, the raising of Lazarus, even the Old Testament miracles, all are freely used for religious propaganda, and they are very effective with an audience of unsophisticates and children.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Evolution is as much a fact as the heat of the sun.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Scientific beliefs are supported by evidence, and they get results. Myths and faiths are not and do not.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “It often turns out on closer inspection that acts of apparent altruism are really selfishness in disguise.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Mutation is random; natural selection is the very opposite of random.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Evolution could so easily be disproved if just a single fossil turned up in the wrong date order. Evolution has passed this test with flying colours.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Life results from the non-random survival of randomly varying replicators. The watchmaker is blind.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My thoughts, my beliefs, my feelings are all in my brain. My brain is going to rot.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The human psyche has two great sicknesses: the urge to carry vendetta across generations, and the tendency to fasten group labels on people rather than see them as individuals.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Faith can be very very dangerous, and deliberately to implant it into the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a grievous wrong.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is enough information capacity in a single human cell to store the Encyclopedia Britannica, all 30 volumes of it, three or four times over.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is no reason to regard God as immune from consideration along the spectrum of probabilities. And there is certainly no reason to suppose that, just because God can be neither proved nor disproved, his probability of existence is 50 per cent.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish. Let us understand what our own selfish genes are up to, because we may then at least have the chance to upset their designs, something that no other species has ever aspired to do.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I don’t understand why so many people who are sophisticated in science go on believing in God. I wish I did.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Undisguised clarity is easily mistaken for arrogance.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Do you advocate the Ten Commandments as a guide to the good life? Then I can only presume that you don’t know the Ten Commandments.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Gravity is not a version of the truth. It is the truth. Anyone who doubts it is invited to jump out a tenth-storey window.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Let our tribute to the dead be a new resolve: to respect people for what they individually think, rather than respect groups for what they were collectively brought up to believe.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Even if it were true that evolution, or the teaching of evolution, encouraged immorality that would not imply that the theory of evolution was false.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religion is not the root of all evil, for no one thing is the root of all anything.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I shall not make an argument ad hominem. My argument is ad bullshitem.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “You contain a trillion copies of a large, textual document written in a highly accurate, digital code, each copy as voluminous as a substantial book. I’m talking, of course, of the DNA in your cells.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We, alone on earth, can rebel against the tyranny of the selfish replicators.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I have no explanation for complex biological design. All I know is that God isn’t a good explanation, so we must wait and hope that somebody comes up with a better one.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am thrilled to be alive at time when humanity is pushing against the limits of understanding. Even better, we may eventually discover that there are no limits.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Writing a computer virus program is child’s play. Any fool can do it, which is why the silly little twerps who do have nothing to be proud of.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “You can make some inferences about a man’s character if you know something about the conditions in which he has survived and prospered.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “Human beings are just gene machines.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “Scientific truth is too beautiful to be sacrificed for the sake of light entertainment or money. Astrology is an aesthetic affront. It cheapens astronomy, like using Beethoven for commercial jingles.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am one of those scientists who feels that it is no longer enough just to get on and do science. We have to devote a significant proportion of our time and resources to defending it from deliberate attack from organised ignorance.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The rabbit runs faster than the fox, because the rabbit is running for his life while the fox is only running for his dinner.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Mysteries do not lose their poetry when solved. Quite the contrary; the solution often turns out more beautiful than the puzzle and, in any case, when you have solved one mystery you uncover others, perhaps to inspire greater poetry.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I suppose if you look back to your early childhood you accept everything people tell you, and that includes a heavy dose of irrationality – you’re told about tooth fairies and Father Christmas and things.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If there is something that appears to lie beyond the natural world as it is now imperfectly understood, we hope to eventually understand it and embrace it within the natural. As ever when we unweave a rainbow, it will not become less wonderful.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I hate the neologism “owned” for “scored a victory over”. I have no intention of owning anyone, and nobody will ever own me.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I detest ‘Jingle Bells,’ ‘White Christmas,’ ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,’ and the obscene spending bonanza that nowadays seems to occupy not just December, but November and much of October, too.”
