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: “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: “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: “It has become almost a cliche to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance of literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science and proudly claim incompetence in mathematics.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “To an honest judge, the alleged convergence between religion and science is a shallow, empty, hollow, spin-doctored sham.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “If you set out in a spaceship to find the one planet in the galaxy that has life, the odds against your finding it would be so great that the task would be indistinguishable, in practice, from impossible.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The river of my title is a river of DNA, a river of information, not a river of bones and tissues.”

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: “There’s nothing nonsensical about saying that what would evolve if Darwinian selection has its head is something that you don’t want to happen. And I could easily imagine trying to go against Darwinism.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Compassionate doctors sometimes lie to patients about the severity of their condition, and it is not always wrong to do so.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I once wrote that anybody who believes the world is only 6,000 years old is either ignorant, stupid, insane or wicked.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It would be intolerant if I advocated the banning of religion, but of course I never have.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Commonsense lets us down, because commonsense evolved in a world where nothing moves very fast, and nothing is very small or very large; the mundane world of the familiar.”
