Richard Dawkins Quote: “After sleeping through a hundred million centuries, we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed while it’s happening.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Just because science can’t in practice explain things like the love that motivates a poet to write a sonnet, that doesn’t mean that religion can. It’s a simple and logical fallacy to say, ‘If science can’t do something therefore religion can.’”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Faith is one of the world’s great evils, comparable to the smallpox virus but harder to eradicate.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “They are in you and me; they created us, body and mind; and their preservation is the ultimate rationale for our existence. They have come a long way, those replicators. Now they go by the name of genes, and we are their survival machines.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “What’s wrong with being elitist if you are trying to encourage people to join the elite rather than being exclusive?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Organizing atheists is a bit like herding cats; They are on the whole too intelligent and independent minded to lend themselves to being herded.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I respect you too much to respect your ridiculous ideas.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Not a single one of your ancestors died young. They all copulated at least once.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Anybody who objects to cloning on principle has to answer to all the identical twins in the world who might be insulted by the thought that there is something offensive about their very existence. Clones are simply identical twins.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “People who believe the earth was created 6000 years ago, when it’s actually 4.5 billion years old, should also believe the width of North America is 8 yards. That is the scale of the error.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Evolution never looks to the future.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My love of truth and honesty forces me to notice that the liberal intelligentsia of Western countries is betraying itself where Islam is concerned.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If you want to do evil, science provides the most powerful weapons to do evil; but equally, if you want to do good, science puts into your hands the most powerful tools to do so.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think...”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “All the great religions have a place for awe, for ecstatic transport at the wonder and beauty of creation.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The fear of Hell is a very powerful motivation.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Humans are just a very, very small part of the panoply of life, and it is arguable that in a certain sense, humans have emancipated themselves from Darwinian selection.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Bertrand Russell used a hypothetical teapot in orbit about Mars for the same didactic purpose. You have to be agnostic about the teapot, but that doesn’t mean you treat the likelihood of its existence as being on all fours with its non-existence.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The universe is a strange and wondrous place. The truth is quite odd enough to need no help from pseudoscientific charlatans.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am not an enthusiast for diversity of opinion where facts are concerned.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Let children learn about different faiths, let them notice their incompatibility, and let them draw their own conclusions about the consequences of that incompatibility. As for whether they are ‘valid,’ let them make up their own minds when they are old enough to do so.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Philosophy and the subjects known as ‘humanities’ are still taught almost as if Darwin had never lived.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religion is nothing more than a useless and sometimes dangerous, evolutionary accident. Religious behavior may be a misfiring, an unfortunate byproduct of an underlying psychological propensity which in other circumstances is, or once was, useful.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If I’d been born in ancient Greece, I’d worship Zeus and Aphrodite.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Indeed, organizing atheists has been compared to herding cats, because they tend to think independently and will not conform to authority.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The body is a survival machine programmed to propagate the genes that reside inside it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My point is not that religion itself is the motivation for wars, murders and terrorist attacks, but that religion is the principal label, and the most dangerous one, by which a “they” as opposed to a “we” can be identified at all.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It’s an important point to realize that the genetic programming of our lives is not fully deterministic. It is statistical – it is in any animal merely statistical – not deterministic.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Of course you can have an opinion about Islam without having read Qur’an. You don’t have to read Mein Kampf to have an opinion about Nazism.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We have seen that living things are too improbable and too beautifully ‘designed’ to have come into existence by chance.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Just because science so far has failed to explain something, such as consciousness, to say it follows that the facile, pathetic explanations which religion has produced somehow by default must win the argument is really quite ridiculous.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The feature of living matter that most demands explanation is that it is almost unimaginably complicated in directions that convey a powerful illusion of deliberate design.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Any altruistic system is inherently unstable, because it is open to abuse by selfish individuals, ready to exploit it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I like to think ‘The God Delusion’ is a humorous book. I think, actually, it’s full of laughs. And people who describe it as a polarizing book or as an aggressive book, it’s just that very often they haven’t read it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Science, as opposed to technology, does violence to common sense.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Unfortunately, however much we may deplore something, it does not stop being true.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It is possible in medicine, even when you intend to do good, to do harm instead. That is why science thrives on actively encouraging criticism rather than stifling it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “God exists, if only in the form of a meme with high survival value, or infective power, in the environment provided by human culture.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I accept that there may be things far grander and more incomprehensible than we can possibly imagine.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “American political opportunities are loaded against those who are simultaneously intelligent and honest.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Metaphors are fine if they aid understanding, but sometimes they get in the way.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Nothing is wrong with peace and love. It is all the more regrettable that so many of Christ’s followers seem to disagree.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Each one of us is a city of cells, and each cell a town of bacteria. You are a gigantic megalopolis of bacteria.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Beliefs. Once entrenched in a culture, they persist, evolve and diverge, in a manner reminiscent of biological evolution.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Let us understand Darwinism so we can walk in the opposite direction when it comes to setting up society.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I do sometimes accuse people of ignorance, but that is not intended to be an insult. I’m ignorant of lots of things. Ignorance is something that can be remedied by education.”
