Richard Dawkins Quote: “Real life seeks the gentle slopes at the back of Mount Improbable, while creationists are blind to all but the daunting precipice at the front.”
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: “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: “But if science cannot answer some ultimate question, what makes anybody think that religion can?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is great variation in brain power all the way from Einstien on one hand to Sarah Palin on the other.”
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: “More poignant for us, at Laetoli in Tanzania are the companionable footprints of three real hominids, probably Australopithecus afarensis, walking together 3.6 million years ago in what was then fresh volcanic ash. Who does not wonder what these individuals were to each other, whether they held hands or even talked, and what forgotten errand they shared in a Pliocene dawn?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “To be fair, much of the Bible is not systematically evil but just plain weird, as you would expect of a chaotically cobbled-together anthology of disjointed documents, composed, revised, translated, distorted and ‘improved’ by hundreds of anonymous authors, editors and copyists, unknown to us and mostly unknown to each other, spanning nine centuries.”
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: “Given a hundred clones of Carl Sagan, we might have some hope for the next century.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Who will say with confidence that sexual abuse is more permanently damaging to children than threatening them with the eternal and unquenchable fires of hell?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Next to the true beauty and magic of the real world, supernatural spells and stage tricks seem cheap and tawdry by comparison. The magic of reality is neither supernatural nor a trick, but – quite simply – wonderful. Wonderful, and real. Wonderful because real.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It would be intolerant if I advocated the banning of religion, but of course I never have.”
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: “I am an enthusiastic Darwinian, but I think Darwinism is too big a theory to be confined to the narrow context of the gene.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I would like to find a way in which people in Saudi Arabia could learn that they can be something other than a Muslim. Some people may not realize this. Of course, there is the problem that you can get in trouble or get stoned.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is no universally agreed definition of a gene.”
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: “To an honest judge, the alleged convergence between religion and science is a shallow, empty, hollow, spin-doctored sham.”
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: “I think I would abolish schools which systematically inculcate sectarian beliefs.”
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: “What impresses me about Catholic mythology is partly its tasteless kitsch but mostly the airy nonchalance with which these people make up the details as they go along. It is just shamelessly invented.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religions do make claims about the universe – the same kinds of claims that scientists make, except they’re usually false.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I do think imagination is enormously valuable, and that children should be encouraged in their imagination. That’s very true.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The history-deniers themselves are among those I am trying to reach in this book. But, perhaps more importantly, I aspire to arm those are not history-deniers but know some – perhaps members of their own family or church – and find themselves inadequately prepared to argue the case.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We should learn to understand natural selection, so that we can oppose any tendency to apply it to human politics.”
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: “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: “We are a very, very unusual species.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “A theist believes in a supernatural intelligence who, in addition to his main work of creating the universe in the first place, is still around to oversee and influence the subsequent fate of his initial creation. In.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Religion teaches you to be satisfied with nonanswers. It’s a sort of crime against childhood.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “By dislaiming the idea of a next life, we can take more excitement in this one!”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The idea of tiny changes cumulated over many steps is an immensely powerful idea, capable of explaining an enormous range of things that would be otherwise inexplicable.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “In a way, I think religion is to be admired for asking the right questions. I just think it’s got the wrong answers.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The deceitful misquoting of scientists to suit an anti-scientific agenda ranks among the many unchristian habits of fundamentalist authors.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Though the details differ across the world, no known culture lacks some version of the time-consuming, wealth consuming, hostility provoking rituals, the anti-factual, counter-productive fantasies of religion.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I might respect you as a brilliant intellect, runner, musician or juggler. But respect your BELIEFS? Only if they’re supported by evidence.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I think the world’s always a better place if people are filled with understanding.”

This is one nation under God.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “I get the feeling more and more that religion is being left behind.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Why would an all-powerful creator decide to plant his carefully crafted species on islands and continents in exactly the appropriate pattern to suggest, irresistibly, that they had evolved and dispersed from the site of their evolution?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “One way to express the answer is that it might happen by ‘chance’. But ‘chance’ is just a word expressing ignorance. It means ‘determined by some as yet unknown, or unspecified, means’.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Despite the Great Chain of Being’s traditional ranking of humans between animals and angels, there is no evolutionary justification for the common assumption that evolution is somehow ‘aimed’ at humans, or that humans are ‘evolution’s last word’.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “If children were taught to question and think through their beliefs, instead of being taught the superior virtue of faith without question, it is a good bet that there would be no suicide bombers.”
