I guess my point in answer to this thread is once again about the mirror
I hold up to atheists like Jonsa (who initiated this topic), Segnasaur and others who only clearly demonstrate how Atheism is religion to a lot of atheists. You can scream bloody murder that it is not a religion - however, if it walks like a duck, it talks like a duck and it looks like a duck....it is a duck! Your position is full of ironies!
Your "critical" thinking and pseudo-analysis of Christianity and Christians, from the hypocrisies, selective interpretations, contradictions, emotion-based responses etc.., ironically, all these exist in your own atheistic religion.
For starter, you can't even unanimously agree to the very simple doctrine of your Bishop Dawkins that you are related to monkeys!
What's so complicated about that?? Some of you are clearly resisting that very idea of being related to the monkey - Dawkins accused Wendy Wright of that very same thing, - or some of you don't understand your own doctrine.Ironic,
Bishop Dawkins threw the accusation to Wendy Wright that she responds with her emotion.....and yet, when Wendy Wright pointed out that he seems to be hostile to those who disagree with his theory, what was your Bishop's response? "Not hostility. Annoyance
He further explained his annoyance.
Showing that he responds with his emotions.
Not only is it ironic
, but for Dawkins to negate his assertion with his response - in a span of a few seconds - is....so bizarre (for lack of a better word at the moment).
Who threw the first tantrum in that interview? The first adhominem? Your Bishop.
Who fired the first disparaging question that -ironically only served to question your Bishop's state of mind?
Of course, your Bishop.
All those....emotion-based responses! Do I need to point out who's prone to behave like the good Bishop here? Who tends to go on a personal attack and adhominems?
Then there's the hypocrisy issue. For all the lofty holier-than-thou attitude being displayed by Dawkins and his flock....it's not for you to throw the hypocrisy-pie at Christians' faces. Hypocrisy - way up there along with contradictions - is clearly one of your main
