    Professor Richard Dawkins, Helping or not?

    The best evolutionary biologist since Charles Darwin but should he be proving peoples religions wrong?

    There are always neighsayers out there and you don't have to look too hard or far to see them in all of their flamboyant rhetoric. Anything controversial is what they are after..that which draws attention to them in all of their hypocrisy and fraud. This author may not be one of these in the objective in his work, yet there are many,who think nothing of destroying other's beliefs, if they do and what they are after is fame and notoriety. Though there may be some facts, there are always ifs and buts, concerning most topics. Religion is one that seems to draw the most flack, because it is seen by so many and has such a hold on the entire world's peoples, many of whom adamantly attest to it and worship their chosen faiths with such sincerity. The book writers who would decide that their position would be to act as the ultimate and supreme being who tells all the "truth" and strives to be the curer of all sickness and evils, are themselves delusional and living in self denial. Leave the world along and all of its religions should be respected and honored by all. Choose another controversial subject to nullify or make a waste of ,and not that which so many lives are based upon!!!!!

      But religions try to convert/preach about what they believe is it not right Dawkins does the same?

      I'm sure the author was positive in his message and did not mean to represent a falseness, in this work; my point is that many do misrepresent in order to push their opinions on others.

    Nothing can actually be proven only accepted or rejected through various observations and evidence brought forth. The evidence does not really prove anything, it only supports what a scientist declares. God and how people believe in God is 'to each his own'. No matter what a scientist claims cannot disperse the strong belief someone has, unless deep down inside he has doubts to begin with.

    I am Greek Orthodox yet I do not believe in God as most Christians or Judaists. I do believe in God but in a different light. So? The point is to believe, abide by and teach all the goodness God represents.

    Professor Dawkins presents his views perhaps because he wants to diminish hatred which thrives between certain religions, the narrow mindedness of others and still harnessing of peoples through certain religions. Let him. If you believe can it affect you?

    Sure if that's what he wants to do. We need dissenting opinions lest we lose the very beauty of living in a diverse society. Dawkins is a great orator and a renowned scholar. Who am I to tell him what he can write about? Besides, his "recruiting" of non-theists is no more invasive than, say, the tactics of Jehovah's Witnesses. We need more people like Dawkins, especially since the death of Christopher Hitchens.
