Richard Dawkins: Now He Defends What He Set Out to Destroy

Alas, the genie is out of the bottle:

Buddhists, Dawkins and Gays worried by Islam in Europe

The rapidly accelerating growth of Islam in Europe has produced a few unexpected alliances: Buddhists have joined Polish Nationalists in protesting the construction of a Mosque in Warsaw; atheist Richard Dawkins is having second thoughts about the collapse of Christianity in Britain, and the English Defence League – vilified by the Islamists as a bunch of football hooligans – has formed a gay division.

Dawkins preaches to the deluded against the divine

Melanie Phillips

For someone who has made a career out of telling everyone how much more tolerant the world would be if only religion were obliterated from the human psyche, Dawkins manages to appear remarkably intolerant towards anyone who disagrees with him.  The Australian

Buddhists join Polish crusade against Megamosque in Warsaw

The Polish activist group Europe of the Future held a protest on 27th March against the proposal to build a new Saudi-financed mosque in Warsaw. The predominantly Catholic Poles objected to the fact that the Saudis could build triumphalist mosques in European capitals, but Christians were not allowed to build churches or even possess Bibles in Saudi Arabia.

Richard Dawkins views Christianity as a bulwark against Islam

Christianity is in decline in Europe as a whole, and has collapsed in Britain in particular, leaving even the most committed atheists wondering what is going to fill the spiritual vacuum.

From The Times:
“Even among the world’s most famous atheists, the crisis of faith among Christians in Europe has been met with concern.

Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, said: “There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.”

Peter Tatchell:

“It is a sign of how bad things have become that the faith’s enemies seem now to be defending it.”

  1. Good, I am glad that the people of different backgrounds are grouping together. They need to realize that all the squabbling has to stop. The gays need to get involved too because they will be just ‘dead gay walking’ if the muslims have their way.

  2. set out to destroy it??

    i understood that he was a secularist – i could be wrong

  3. * Christianity is in decline in Europe as a whole

    This is the prophesied apostasy / great falling away, a prerequisite for Antichrist to be revealed (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

    * what is going to fill the spiritual vacuum.

    Mystery Babylon, and Antichrist.

  4. Who cares!

    We need intelligent, articulate, and, yes, famous people like Dawkins to help in the big fight.
    Of course someone like him can see that the christian god is nothing compared to what old allah is going to let rain down upon us when the muzzies take over. It would be a waste of time for him to keep harping on about the nice, cosy and quaint little superstition of christianity, when we’re faced with the islam juggernaut destroying everything in its path.

  5. This has been my defense for Christianity for the last 5 years.

    1. It gives meaning to people who couldn’t care less about the objective and verifiable truth.

    2. Christianity has been modernized through 5 centuries of enlightenment, resulting in a relatively consistent set of beliefs.

    3. Islam is having trouble reforming itself. The majority of Muslims are resorting to more self-righteousness and more self-alienation, than having to admit the apparent problem with Islam. Meanwhile the imams, who possess no practical skills whatsoever, feed on this frenzy to keep themselves relevant.

  6. Some one once called it ‘SHITLAM’ but I like ‘PISSLAM’ too.
    What a bunch of demonic spooks. They ignorantly worship the devil and want the entire world to believe that they are a peaceful lot. What a bunch of weird queers.

  7. This is why we should not look to the atheist fringe for help against jihad:

    Further to Monday’s post on selective atheism:
    In a recent Al-Jazeerah interview, Richard Dawkins was asked his views on God. He argued that the god of “the Old Testament” is “hideous” and “a monster”, and reiterated his claim from The God Delusion that the God of the Torah is the most unpleasant character “in fiction”.

    Asked if he thought the same of the God of the Koran, Dawkins ducked the question, saying: “Well, um, the God of the Koran I don’t know so much about.”

    How can it be that the world’s most fearless atheist, celebrated for his strident opinions on the Christian and Jewish Gods, could profess to know so little about the God of the Koran? Has he not had the time? Or is Professor Dawkins simply demonstrating that most crucial trait of his species: survival instinct.

    UPDATE. Dawkins in 2011: “Islam is one of the great evils of the world”:

    Curious that he should offer a milder view when speaking more recently with Al Jazeera.
