Richard Dawkins Quote: “The feeling of awed wonder that science can give us is one of the highest experiences of which the human psyche is capable.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “More generally, as I shall repeat in Chapter 8, one of the truly bad effects of religion is that it teaches us that it is a virtue to be satisfied with not understanding.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Physicists are working on the Big Bang, and one day they may or may not solve it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Such delusions of grandeur to think that a God with a hundred billion galaxies on his mind would give a tuppenny damn who you sleep with, or indeed whether you believe in him.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Words are our servants, not our masters. For different purposes, we find it convenient to use words in different senses.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We should take astrology seriously. No, I don’t mean we should believe in it. I am talking about fighting it seriously instead of humouring it as a piece of harmless fun.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is no such thing as a Christian child: only a child of Christian parents.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Many people want to send their children to faith schools because they get good exam results, but they’re not foolish enough to believe that it’s because of faith that they get good exam results.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It is immoral to brand children with religion. ‘This is a Catholic child.’ ‘That is a Muslim child.’ I want everyone to flinch when they hear such a phrase, just as they would if they heard, ‘That is a Marxist child.’”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Offense is what people take when they can’t take argument.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “For the first half of geological time our ancestors were bacteria. Most creatures still are bacteria, and each one of our trillions of cells is a colony of bacteria.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’m a cultural Christian in the same way many of my friends call themselves cultural Jews or cultural Muslims.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Do you really mean the only reason you try to be good is to gain God’s approval and reward? That’s not morality, that’s just sucking up.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Bereavement is terrible, of course. And when somebody you love dies, it’s a time for reflection, a time for memory, a time for regret.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Society bends over backward to be accommodating to religious sensibilities but not to other kinds of sensibilities. If I say something offensive to religious people, I’ll be universally censured, including by many atheists.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “As long as we accept the principle that religious faith must be respected simply because it is religious faith, it is hard to withhold respect from the faith of Osama bin Laden and the suicide bombers.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Those who wish to base their morality literally on the Bible have either not read it or not understood it...”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I do feel visceral revulsion at the burka because for me it is a symbol of the oppression of women.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Not only is science corrosive to religion, but religion is corrosive to science. It teaches people to be satisfied with trivial non-explanations and blinds them to the wonderful real explanations that we have within our grasp.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Segregation has no place in the education system.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The Bible should be taught, but emphatically not as reality. It is fiction, myth, poetry, anything but reality. As such it needs to be taught because it underlies so much of our literature and our culture.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The solution often turns out more beautiful than the puzzle.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The genetic code is not a binary code as in computers, nor an eight-level code as in some telephone systems, but a quaternary code with four symbols. The machine code of the genes is uncannily computerlike.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am utterly fed up with the respect we have been brainwashed into bestowing upon religion.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Intelligent life on a planet comes of age when it first works out the reason for its own existence.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “What lies at the heart of every living thing is not a fire, not warm breath, not a ‘spark of life.’ It is information, words, instructions... If you want to understand life, don’t think about vibrant, throbbing gels and oozes, think about information technology.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Everybody is an atheist in saying that there is a god – from Ra to Shiva – in which he does not believe. All that the serious and objective atheist does is to take the next step and to say that there is just one more god to disbelieve in.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If I were God wanting to make a human being, I would do it by a more direct way rather than by evolution. Why deliberately set it up in the one way which makes it look as though you don’t exist?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The Hopi tribe of North America had a goddess called Spider Woman. In their creation myth she teamed up with Tawa the sun god, and they sang the First Magic Song as a duet. This song brought the Earth, and life, into being. Spider Woman then took the threads of Tawa’s thoughts and wove them into solid form, creating fish, birds, and all other animals.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The cynic about human nature might say that religious morality is an effective way of keeping people in line. The threat of hell, the reward of heaven, but the rules of the holy books are out of date and often barbaric.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The important thing to remember about mathematics is not to be frightened.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My personal feeling is that understanding evolution led me to atheism.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Bad things happen because things happen.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “THE MAJORITY of children born into the world tend to inherit the beliefs of their parents, and that to me is one of the most regrettable facts of them all.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The argument from improbability, properly deployed, comes close to proving that God does not exist.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There’s no point of having faith if you have evidence.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am very comfortable with the idea that we can override biology with free will.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “When we talk about genes for anything, like a gene for being gay or a gene for being aggressive or something of that sort, that a gene for anything may not have been a gene for that thing under different environmental conditions.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Being an atheist frees you up to live this life properly, happily, and fully.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Rather than propose a new theory or unearth a new fact, often the most important contribution a scientist can make is to discover a new way of seeing old theories or facts.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It is almost as if the human brain were specifically designed to misunderstand Darwinism, and to find it hard to believe.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My computer is a very complex gadget and it was designed by many designers, so why must the universe have only a single designer and not many designers?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Disagreements between incompatible beliefs cannot be settled by reasoned argument because reasoned argument is drummed out of those trained in religion from the cradle.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religious people are atheists about all other gods, atheists only take it one god further.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “I great difficulty having any respect for a religion that has so little confidence in the truth of its beliefs that it feels reduced to using threats in order to propagate those beliefs.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “Can omniscient God, who Knows the future, find The omnipotence to Change His future mind?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The machine code of the genes is uncannily computer-like. Apart from differences in jargon, the pages of a molecular biology journal might be interchanged with those of a computer engineering journal.”
