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: “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: “If Bush and Blair are eventually put on trial for war crimes, I shall not be among those pressing for them to be hanged.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Design cannot precede evolution and therefore cannot underlie the universe.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The book is true, and if evidence seems to condtradict it, it is the evidence that must be thrown out not the book.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I don’t feel depressed. I feel elated.”
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: “What has ‘theology’ ever said that is of the smallest use to anybody? When has ‘theology’ ever said anything that is demonstrably true and is not obvious? What makes you think that ‘theology’ is a subject at all?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If ever there was a slamming of the door in the face of constructive investigation, it is the word miracle. To a medieval peasant, a radio would have seemed like a miracle.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Scientists disagree among themselves but they never fight over their disagreements. They argue about evidence or go out and seek new evidence. Much the same is true of philosophers, historians and literary critics.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “What is interesting about the scientific world view is that it is true, inspiring, remarkable and that it unites a whole lot of phenomena under a single heading.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is something so mysterious that it is almost like God. God is in the equations. God is in the fundamental constants. And that’s fine. I mean, that’s just redefinition of that which we find mysterious at the basis of the universe.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Most of what we strive for in our modern life uses the apparatus of goal seeking that was originally set up to seek goals in the state of nature.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’m quite a softy, yes. I have a blank spot with respect to visual art, but I have perhaps a compensating hypersensitivity to poetry and music.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It doesn’t hurt my feeling when I get vilified by fundamentalist religious people. I’ve actually made comedy out of it. I’ve made light of that.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religion teaches you to be satisfied with nonanswers. It’s a sort of crime against childhood.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We are digital archives of the African Pliocene, even of Devonian seas; walking repositories of wisdom out of the old days. You could spend a lifetime reading in this ancient library and die unsated by the wonder of it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Why do more than 40 percent of Americans think that the Universe began after the domestication of the dog?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If your plane is being hijacked by an armed man who, though prepared to take risks, presumably wants to go on living, there is room for bargaining.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Why, I can’t help wondering, is God thought to need such ferocious defence? One might have supposed him amply capable of looking after himself.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I should also give some space to Amotz Zahavi’s idea that altruistic donation might be a ‘Potlatch’ style of dominance signal: see how superior to you I am, I can afford to make a donation to you!”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My objection to supernatural beliefs is precisely that they miserably fail to do justice to the sublime grandeur of the real world. They represent a narrowing-down from reality, an impoverishment of what the real world has to offer.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I think the world’s always a better place if people are filled with understanding.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If a healing technique is demonstrated to have curative properties in properly controlled double-blind trials, it ceases to be alternative. It simply, as Diamond explains, becomes medicine.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “When I am dying, I should like my life taken out under general anaesthetic, exactly as if it were a diseased appendix.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “When I say that human beings are just gene machines, one shouldn’t put too much emphasis on the word ‘just.’ There is a very great deal of complication, and indeed beauty in being a gene machine.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Darwin gives courage to the rest of science that we shall end up understanding literally everything, springing from almost nothing – a thought extremely hard to comprehend and believe.”
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: “Matthew and Luke handle the problem differently, by deciding that Jesus must have been born in Bethlehem after all. But they get him there by different routes.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “No doubt soaring cathedrals, stirring music, moving stories and parables, help a bit. But by far the most important variable determining your religion is the accident of birth.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “But perhaps the rest of us could have separate classes in science appreciation, the wonder of science, scientific ways of thinking, and the history of scientific ideas, rather than laboratory experience.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Human psychology has a near universal tendency to let belief be coloured by desire.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If we are too friendly to nice, decent bishops, we run the risk of buying into the fiction that there’s something virtuous about believing things because of faith rather than because of evidence. We run the risk of betraying scientific enlightenment.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “As Einstein said, ‘If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religions are not imaginative, not poetic, not soulful. On the contrary, they are parochial, small-minded, niggardly with the human imagination, precisely where science is generous.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I think what attracts me about the Electric Monk is that it’s such an eloquent example of the futility of belief for belief’s sake. I mean there’s only any point in believing something if it’s true.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We who are atheists are also a-fairyists, a-teapotists, and a-unicornists, but we don’t have to bother saying so.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Most people, I believe, think that you need a God to explain the existence of the world, and especially the existence of life. They are wrong, but our education system is such that many people don’t know it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If children understand that beliefs should be substantiated with evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, revelation or faith, they will automatically work out for themselves that they are atheists.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religious faith not only lacks evidence, its independence from evidence is its pride and joy, shouted from the rooftops.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Design can never be an ultimate explanation for anything. It can only be a proximate explanation. A plane or a car is explained by a designer but that’s because the designer himself, the engineer, is explained by natural selection.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The placebo effect is well documented and not even very mysterious. Dummy pills, with no pharmacological activity at all, demonstrably improve health. That is why double-blind drug trials must use placebos as controls. It’s why homoeopathic remedies appear to work, even though they are so dilute that they have the same amount of active ingredient as the placebo control – zero molecules.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The Bishop goes on to the human eye, asking rhetorically, and with the implication that there is no answer, ‘How could an organ so complex evolve?’ This is not an argument, it is simply an affirmation of incredulity.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Bush and bin Laden are really on the same side: the side of faith and violence against the side of reason and discussion. Both have implacable faith that they are right and the other is evil.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religious organisations have an automatic tax-free charitable status.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: ‘When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called Religion.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’ve been reading an Alabama newspaper that one man shot another man because he beat him in a Bible-quoting competition.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Things exist either because they have recently come into existence or because they have qualities that made them unlikely to be destroyed in the past.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Molecular evidense suggests that our common ancestor with the chimpanzees lived, in Africa, between 5 and 7 million years ago, say half a million generations ago. This is not long by evolutionary standards.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I guess there are some rights of parents with what they choose their children to learn, but I’m biased in favor of freeing children to learn and not letting parents be too doctrinaire in indoctrinating their children.”
