Tinker observes that Dawkins has all the hallmarks of fundamentalist religion:
  • Vehemence
  • Narrow-mindedness
  • Intolerance
Is he basically just being a .. well a" fundamentalist scientist"?

I was just interested in people views...

ah I didn't really think of it like that! Because so many people say atheism is a from of belief I tend to forget that no, its lack of it.
True about atheism, disillusionment with the church and flaws in the religious argument were my reasons.
Thanks for helping me get that straight in my head, even though it hurts from having to do this much thinking.

If you're thinking, then you are doing it right! Too many people stop thinking or never start. The process is more important than the conclusions gained, more often than not. :-)
You could say that critical thinking is a meme, albeit one that I think ought to be encouraged. :)
No. Richard Dawkins is in no way a fundamentalist. I could elaborate more on why he is not but I think everyone else has basically covered it.
The trouble with Dawkins?

Of course, this is Michael Ruse. I've seen his stuff before and I think he really misses the mark. He bloviates but nothing meaningful comes of it.
Some Dawkins dogma for you all. ;-)
