Richard Dawkins Quote: “A gene might be able to assist replicas of itself that are sitting in other bodies. If so, this would appear as individual altruism but it would be brought about by gene selfishness.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Evolution is a fact. Beyond reasonable doubt, beyond serious doubt, beyond sane, informed, intelligent doubt, beyond doubt evolution is a fact... That didn’t have to be true. It is not self-evidently, tautologically, obviously true, and there was a time when most people, even educated people, thought it wasn’t. It didn’t have to be true, but it is... Evolution is the only game in town, the greatest show on earth.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The obvious objections to the execution of Saddam Hussein are valid and well aired. His death will provoke violent strife between Sunni and Shia Muslims, and between Iraqis in general and the American occupation forces.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “Have they discovered evolution yet?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The efforts of apologists to find genuinely distinguished modern scientists who are religious have an air of desperation, generating the unmistakably hollow sound or bottoms of barrels being scraped.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We should always be open-minded, but the only good reason to believe that something exists is if there is real evidence that it does.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “All animals are minor variations on a very particular theme.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am very hostile to religion because it is enormously dominant, especially in American life. And I don’t buy the argument that, well, it’s harmless. I think it is harmful, partly because I care passionately about what’s true.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is absolutely no reason to believe that those things for which science does not yet have natural explanations will turn out to be of supernatural origin, any more than volcanoes or earthquakes or diseases turn out to be caused by angry deities, as people once believed they were. Of.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I find that religion really does motivate people to do horrible things because they have this passionate faith in whatever their religion happens to be, and it teaches them that the other religion is the wrong one.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “False beliefs can be every bit as consoling as true ones, right up until the moment of disillusionment.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “All religious beliefs seem weird to people not brought up in them.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Even if not a single fossil has ever been found, the evidence from surviving animals would still overwhelmingly force the conclusion that Darwin was right.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “A gene is defined as any portion of chromosomal material that potentially lasts for enough generations to serve as a unit of natural selection.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I think what I’d really like to see would be a mass consciousness-raising movement so that we would all become vegetarian.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We cannot, of course, disprove God, just as we can’t disprove Thor, fairies, leprechauns, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But, like those other fantasies that we can’t disprove, we can say that God is very, very improbable.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We don’t need fossils – the case for evolution is watertight without them; so it is paradoxical to use gaps in the fossil record as though they were evidence against evolution.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We have this one life, let’s enjoy it, let’s live it to the full and don’t get so worked up about don’t identify yourself so passionately with this business called religion.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Cloning may be good and it may be bad. Probably it’s a bit of both. The question must not be greeted with reflex hysteria but decided quietly, soberly and on its own merits. We need less emotion and more thought.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “You cannot be both sane and well educated and disbelieve in evolution. The evidence is so strong that any sane, educated person has got to believe in evolution.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am agnostic only to the extent that I am agnostic about fairies at the bottom of the garden.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “Yes, testosterone-sodden young men too unattractive to get a woman in this world might be desperate enough to go for 72 private virgins in the next.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Being dead will be no different from being unborn – I shall be just as I was in the time of William the Conqueror or the dinosaurs or the trilobites. There is nothing to fear in that.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “A designer God cannot be used to explain organized complexity because any God capable of designing anything would have to be complex enough to demand the same kind of explanation in his own right.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I will not utter falsehoods but I have no objection to making meaningless statements.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It is a virtue to admit ignorance when you don’t know, but not to wallow in ignorance as an end in itself. People say if we don’t believe god is watching over us, we abandon morality. Are they right?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “What I can’t understand is why you can’t see the extraordinary beauty of the idea that life started from nothing – that is such a staggering, elegant, beautiful thing, why would you want to clutter it up with something so messy as a God?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I am not advocating a morality based on evolution.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The question of whether there exists a supernatural creator, a God, is one of the most important that we have to answer. I think that it is a scientific question. My answer is no.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “Do those people who hold up the Bible as an inspiration to moral rectitude have the slightest notion of what is actually written in it?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The atheist view is correspondingly life-affirming and life-enhancing, while at the same time never being tainted with self-delusion, wishful thinking, or the whingeing self-pity of those who feel that life owes them something.”
