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: “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: “I don’t think God is an explanation at all. It’s simply redescribing the problem.”
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.”

Richard Dawkins Quote: “There is no universally agreed definition of a gene.”
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: “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: “If we want to know where the truth lies in particular cases, we have to look.”

Even if we make a huge concession; even if it were conclusively demonstrated that belief in God’s existence is completely essential to human psychological and emotional well-being; even if all atheists were despairing neurotics driven to suicide by relentless cosmic angst – none of this would contribute the tiniest jot or tittle of evidence that religious belief is true. It.”
