Regardless of whether they were trying to be comical, they were factually erroneous in several aspects which I discuss in this video.<br /> <br /> Note: All clips are used under FAIR USE for commentary/criticism, and is covered under section 107 of copyright law.<br /> <br /> References:<br /> <br /> SourceFed's source for the video:<br /> The Independent - "'Bin Laden has won, they confiscated my honey': Outspoken academic Richard Dawkins in airline security Twitter row over jar of honey"<br /> <a href="http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/bin-laden-has-won-they-confiscated-my-honey-outspoken-academic-richard-dawkins-in-airline-security-twitter-row-over-jar-of-honey-8919618.html">http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/bin-laden-has-won-they-confiscated-my-honey-outspoken-academic-richard-dawkins-in-airline-security-twitter-row-over-jar-of-honey-8919618.html</a><br /> <br /> Professor Dawkins' article in The Guardian regarding the incident:<br /> "My honey trap: why doesn't anyone believe in public-spirited concern?"<br /> <a href="http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/nov/05/honey-trap-plane-richard-dawkins-twitter">http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/nov/05/honey-trap-plane-richard-dawkins-twitter</a><br /> <br /> Professor Dawkins' previous article relating to airport security written back in 2011:<br /> Prospect Magazine - "If I ruled the world"<br /> <a href="http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/magazine/richard-dawkins-rule-following-heathrow-security/#.UnquCvlnGop">http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/magazine/richard-dawkins-rule-following-heathrow-security/#.UnquCvlnGop</a><br /> <br /> LiveLife8072's video correcting SourceFed - "SourceFed Hates Dawkins &amp; Atheism?"<br /> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd5xicAvOTc">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yd5xicAvOTc</a><br /> <br /> "The 10 Commandments For Atheists?!" - a SourceFed video which Elliott Morgan hosted himself (credit to LiveLife8072 for pointing this out in his video):<br /> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnrBydjAPQg">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnrBydjAPQg</a><br /> <br /> Tags: Richard Dawkins Claims "Bin Laden has won" Over Confiscated Honey, Richard Dawkins, SourceFed, Elliott Morgan, Joe Bereta, Dawkins, Dawkins airport, airport security, airport TSA, TSA, NSA, Dawkins honey, misleading reporting, news, twitter, Dawkins twitter, atheism, atheist, not funny, not humorous, The Guardian, The Atlantic, Dawkins Bin Laden, religion, EducationIsCool, fact-checking, Elliott Morgan wrong, Elliott Morgan incorrect, SourceFed wrong, SourceFed incorrect, SourceFed misleading, SourceFed misleads, news, politics TokenLibertarianGirl & Climate Change tag:www.thinkatheist.com,2013-10-30:1982180:Video:1396178 2013-10-30T03:05:12.871Z EducationIsCool http://www.thinkatheist.com/profile/EducationIsCool <a href="http://www.thinkatheist.com/video/tokenlibertariangirl-climate-change"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/Lq-MVtloOMCVXA8h6*eFZ8excAglnnIegDPMyhRNiHEuqZWKpMEpi0gX-c8l8hA3PpipwZpxSQKEc*mhB7ocSQuALt-LwcTh/1043462303.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>This is a response to a facebook post by Julie Borowski aka TokenLibertarianGirl here on youtube regarding the science of climate change.

The original question she posed was:<br /> <br /> "Do you believe that global warming is real? If so, is it a natural occurrence or man made?"<br /> <br /> I've think I've tried to be as helpful as possible when it comes to providing a brief summary on some of the science behind climate change. However, other users such as Greenman3610 and Potholer54 have made SUPERB videos on the subject from a scientific perspective. Although I do hope that Julie (and other curious folks) take the time to inquire on the evidence and ask scientific minds on the subject, I'm not interested in a political discussion, but rather on the evidence of climate change. I probably didn't get to everything in this video, so anything I missed I'll be happy to correct.<br /> <br /> References:<br /> Steinfeld, H.; P. Gerber, T. Wassenaar, V. Castel, M.
