Just wondering... if I were to write a petition asking the channels History, Discovery, Science, and National Geographic to air Richard Dawkins' stuff here in the States, how many of you would sign it?

Richard Dawkins is possibly one of the few people who make me proud to be British.
Comment by Nathan Hevenstone on November 4, 2010 at 4:05pm
Yeah, I know that...

For some reason I'm starting to wonder if it was in one the Intelligence Squared debates he took part in...

PLEASE HELP! I don't remember if it was during his God Delusion book tour or press conferences on the Atheist Bus Campaign, but someone asked Richard something like "by saying 'there's probably no God', doesn't that make you an agnostic?" or something like that.

I know it's on video because I clearly remember watching it. However, all Google and Bing searches have not just not helped, but have turned up results that have connection whatsoever to what I'm looking for, and it's getting me kind of angry. Please help... thank you...

Extracted from the Atheist Rabbi:

Jonathon Moseley is a Virginia lawyer and creationist who worked for Christine O’Donnell’s primary campaign. In an article on Christian News Wire, he attacks the separation of church and state and then moves on to the necessity of teaching “intelligent design” in schools.
Moseley also charged: "Coons [O’Donnell’s opponent] also showed appalling ignorance about science as well. The heart and soul of science is questioning established thinking, challenging assumptions, challenging conventional wisdom, and debating both sides of every issue. It is not possible to prepare students to be competent in science without preparing them to look at scientific questions from different angles, examine assumptions, and ask questions outside the box. What Coons would have our schools teach is not science at all, but superstition. Presenting only one point of view without debate never has been and never can be called science. Even if Intelligent Design is taught only as a foil or teaching tool, one cannot teach science by offering only one view."

First of all, this yokel wouldn’t know science if it came up to him and said, “Hi, I’m Science” and then bit him in his ass. What really gets me is that these primitives have taken to using the language of science and reason to attack the scientific and reasonable. What is this crap about teaching from “different angles” and calling evolution “superstition?” Is he serious with this? Are he and his ilk really so stupid? “Intelligent design” is based on a story book. It’s as scientific as Humpty-Dumpty. There is no debate about evolution. It’s a fact.

I finally got to see the great Professor speak in London on Saturday 18th Sept at Protest The Pope. It was a short but powerful comment on the hypocrisy of Ratzinger who said, on the first day of his recent UK visit, that we must fight the rise of "aggressive secularism" and we'd do well to remember that Hitler promoted "godlessness" - Dawkins pointed out, however, something we might know but not enough others do: the Catholic Church has had a strong supportive association with the ol' Catholic, Hitler himself. Dawkins also mentioned that we've done well to get the Vatican so riled that they now have to attack atheism in order to distract everyone else from their own crimes.

Sadly, even though I got within a few feet of him afterwards, he was whisked away before I could go for the handshake and the "thank-you". Still - well done, Dawkins!
