Richard Dawkins Quote: “We are a very, very unusual species.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’m pretty sure there is some genetic component towards intelligence.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I don’t think God is an explanation at all. It’s simply redescribing the problem.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I get the feeling more and more that religion is being left behind.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It’s known that stress gives rise to disease. It’s also known that many diseases, especially stress-related diseases, can be cured by placebos – pills that have no medicinal effect, but people think they do, and so they do.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I have often said that I am a passionate Darwinian when it comes to explaining why we exist.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I think a fundamentalist is somebody who believes something unshakably and isn’t going to change their mind.”
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: “I was confirmed at my prep school at the age of 13.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “To describe religions as mind viruses is sometimes interpreted as contemptuous or even hostile. It is both. I am often asked why I am so hostile to organized religion.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “All religious beliefs seem weird to people not brought up in them.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Even if religion did no other harm in itself, its wanton and carefully nurtured divisiveness – its deliberate and cultivated pandering to humanity’s natural tendency to favour in-groups and shun out-groups – would be enough to make it a significant force for evil in the world.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Are science and religion converging? No. There are modern scientists whose words sound religious but whose beliefs, on close examination, turn out to be identical to those of other scientists who straightforwardly call themselves atheists.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We have to find our own purposes in life, which are not derived directly from our scientific history.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Evolution is not a genetically controlled distortion of one adult form into another; it is a genetically controlled alteration in a developmental program.”
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: “The Darwinian theory is in principle capable of explaining life. No other theory that has ever been suggested is in principle capable of explaining life.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “At least the fundamentalists haven’t tried to dilute their message. Their faith is exposed for what it is for all to see.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’ve never heard of William Craig. A debate with him might look good on his resume, but it wouldn’t look good on mine!”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “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: “Religions do make claims about the universe – the same kinds of claims that scientists make, except they’re usually false.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “A god who is capable of sending intelligible signals to millions of people simultaneously, and of receiving messages from all of them simultaneously, cannot be, whatever else he might be, simple. Such Bandwidth!”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “My decision to be a scientist was a bit of a drift really, more or less by default.”
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. Suicide bombers do what they do because they really believe what they were taught in their religious schools: that duty to God exceeds all other priorities, and that martyrdom in his service will be rewarded in the gardens of Paradise.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “You can’t imagine how gratifying it is to have a reader come up to you and say, ‘You changed my life.’”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Faith is powerful enough to immunize people against all appeals to pity, to forgiveness, to decent human feelings. It even immunizes them against fear, if they honestly believe that a martyr’s death will send them straight to heaven.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It’s very likely that most mammals have consciousness, and probably birds, too.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’m sure Obama is an atheist, I’m sure Kennedy was an atheist, but I doubt if Pope Frank is.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “You can never be absolutely certain that anything doesn’t exist. But you can show that it’s unlikely.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The very idea that grand conclusions could follow from such logomachist trickery offends me aesthetically, so I must take care to refrain from bandying words like ‘fool’.”
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: “I personally would consider it to be an honour to be fossilized.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There are very interesting controversies within evolution; however, whether evolution occurs is not one of them. It definitely does.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There are many religious points of view where the conservation of the world is just as important as it is to scientists.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “You can’t statistically explain improbable things like living creatures by saying that they must have been designed because you’re still left to explain the designer, who must be, if anything, an even more statistically improbable and elegant thing.”
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: “The history of science has been one long series of violent brainstorms, as successive generations have come to terms with increasing levels of queerness in the universe.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “It is raining DNA outside.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I have never imputed to Nature a purpose or a goal, or anything that could be understood as anthropomorphic. What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Science coverage could be improved by the recognition that science is timeless, and therefore science stories should not need to be pegged to an item in the news.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “There are people in the world who desperately want not to have to believe in Darwinism .”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “A human foetus, with no more human feeling than an amoeba, enjoys a reverence and legal protection far in excess of those granted to an adult chimpanzee. Yet.”
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.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “The thing that defines a species is that all members have the same addressing system for their DNA.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Your family tree includes not just obvious cousins like chimpanzees and monkeys but also mice, buffaloes, iguanas, wallabies, snails, dandelions, golden eagles, mushrooms, whales, wombats and bacteria. All are our cousins. Every last one of them. Isn’t that a far more wonderful thought than any myth?”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I should have been put down at birth.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “I’m not one of those who wants to purge our society of our Christian history.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “We’ve all been brought up with the view that religion has some kind of special privileged status. You’re not allowed to criticise it.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “This person should have been aborted years ago.”
Richard Dawkins Quote: “Of course in science there are things that are open to doubt and things need to be discussed. But among the things that science does know, evolution is about as certain as anything we know.”
