    He should just debate William Lane Craig and get over it, with a small research on the Kalam Argument and focusing on the 2 first premises of the argument he can debunk him and live happily ever after but he is not doing that, I don't know why, is he running away from Craig or what.


    He actually was in a debate William Lane Craig was also a part of in Mexico, they staged it in a mock boxing ring. Dawkins stated he won't debate with Craig on principle because he's an "Apologist for genocide".

    Boy Dr. Dawkins is a non-stop speaker..   the link says

    Quote
    Richard Dawkins is an English ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford, and was the University of Oxford's Professor for Public Understanding of Science from 1995 until 2008. He spoke about the role proof plays in evolutionary biology.

    The renowned evolutionary biologist and author received the Penn Museum’s Wilton Krogman Award for Distinguished Achievement in Biological Anthropology when he visited the University of Pennsylvania on March 12, 2013. The Award was presented at the 2013 Bicentennial Philomatheon Society Annual Oration, sold out within days of its announcement, in Irvine Auditorium.

    A history lesson for Dawkins  writes Bisma Tirmizi

    Well  She is journalist and writes in to many Pakistan news papers and Live in AMRIKA in that gambling town Las Vegas  ., let us read bit of history from her that she teaching to Dawkins., Clearly Dawkins is no student of History..

    she says at that link
    Quote
    I am a proud   Muslim Pakistani American, and hate it when am made to feel inferior for being either of the three. Recently, while watching an episode of   Real Time With Bill Maher   on HBO, I was made to feel my status is questionable, and that made me question myself.

    Bill Maher insisted that Islam and Muslims are the problem, and his guest Richard Dawkins gave his own version of Muslims and Islam in Britain. The three other guests on the panel – Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore, former CIA operations officer Valerie Plame and Reverend Al Sharpton – defended Muslims and Islam. While that was heartening to see, Bill Maher’s rhetoric was nonetheless offensive and myopic. It painted an entire religion and its followers to as agenda-driven, trigger-happy, west-hating clansmen, ready to annihilate the entire planet.   

    TV hosts and journalists have a responsibility in the current world climate. It would be wise to get an honest history lesson on the relationship of the east and the west, Islam and Muslims before embarking on an anti-Islam rampage. The focus needs to be on the long history of the faith, rather than current events, exploitation and distortion ] when discussing the complexities of Islam and the west.

    To the likes of arrogant Dawkins who brands the entire Muslim youth in Britain responsible for creating strife and terror in his country, it was the gora sahib or the Crown   that ruled the world and went forcefully into countries – conquering, plundering, killing, raping, looting, drawing unjust and unprincipled lines as boundaries and the world is paying the price for that till today.

    There was no British Dream like the American Dream in the twentieth century, hence the mass migration of entire villages from the third world to Britain in the last century was because cheap labour was needed by the British since an entire generation of British men had been lost in WWII.

    Entire villages migrated. Villages with uneducated, simple, uncouth and rustic populations were set up as tight communities, treated shabbily, and the expectation was, and is, that their descendants should behave like intellectually evolved citizens. Magic?

    There was a debate on the treatment of women in Islam, the most favourite topic of the west to brand Islam with. Yes, women are mistreated in the east, they do not get equal rights, but that is the east, not Islam. Countries like India, China, Japan, Korea and the entire continent of Africa treat woman with inequality.

    This is not to imply that it is right, but simply that it is not synonymous with Islam. Until less than a hundred years ago the west treated women like property – was that Islam? But then their approach changed, they took a step ahead, for that I applaud them, but will not allow them to brand my faith for their misguided blame-game.

    Quote
    George W Bush destroyed Iraq and killed more than a million Muslim Iraqis for no reason. There was no nuclear bomb and the Republican administration, casually shrugs its shoulders and says, ‘My bad for killing over a million Iraqis, but excuse my callousness, I assumed you had a bomb’, and then wonders why the world hates them. The weak do not hate freedom, malls or cinemas, they hate arrogance.


    When one creates generations of orphans and takes wars to countries, and is the greatest ally to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the 1980s and then abandons them, there are consequences for using, divorcing and abandoning without child support. I was in Pakistan when an ammunition dump in Rawalpindi/ Islamabad, called the Ojri Camp, was deliberately destroyed post the Russian Afghan War. Who decided to destroy it can be read between the lines, but for a moment ponder the arrogant disregard for the people of that country, of that city.

    A normal workday became a war zone, with missiles flying all over the city. My grandfather’s house, miles away from the dump, was hit. I had at least fifty to seventy extended family members in that city, running for their lives. We have short memories, but history is made with decades and centuries of atrocities, the exploited, the weak, the mistreated, the war-torn, the underdogs. The victims remember, unlike you and me whose lives are for the most part untouched by war.

    The Malalas of this world are applauded, and they should be, but remember the part played by the 80s’ war and politics and the hand it played in the freedom fighters’ journey to become fundamentalists, fanatics and eventually terrorists.

    There are liberals and fanatics in all religions, the Crusaders, Hitler, Mussolini, Chenghiz Khan, the KKK, the Spanish Inquisition, Bashar, to name a few, all mad men from different races and religions. But that certainly does not mean that we brush all Christians, Germans, Italians, Mongolians, Caucasians, Spanish, Syrians with the same stroke.

    Is the entire faith or race guilty? The moderates believe the jury is still out on that, now and forever.

    I may not completely  in line with witha all what she writes and but I have to agree with some of her points such as

    1).  The focus needs to be on the long history of the faith, rather than current events, exploitation and distortion.

    2).  There are liberals and fanatics in all religions, the Crusaders, Hitler, Mussolini, Chenghiz Khan, the KKK, the Spanish Inquisition, Bashar, to name a few, all mad men from different races and religions.   {WELL SOME NAMES from Islam ARE MISSING HERE)

    and I am not sure about this Yes,  women are mistreated in the east, they do not get equal rights, but that is the east, not Islam. Countries like India, China, Japan, Korea and the entire continent of Africa treat woman with inequality. People say women are  mistreated in west also., but that is not because their god says so unlike Islamic rules..

    But what she wrote has no history lessons, religious history lessons   for Dawkins in her article..

    Quote from: Ishina
    I really don't understand why Dawkins has become the fall guy for "militant atheism". In anything I've seen him in, he's been well-spoken, humble, polite, patient, respectful, but assertive when needed, when he's making a point or explaining why an opponent is mistaken. Far more patient than I could be in the discussions he takes part in. And his broader body of work is fantastic, amongst the best written work on evolutionary science you can find.


    This. Poor Dawkins gets all the blame.

    When I was a Buddhist, I used to write negative reviews of Dawkins' books on Amazon. I used to say that these Atheists were just as fundamentalist as the Christian mob, because they refused to consider human happiness. I'd come up with some half-brained argument that happiness is fundamental to human beings and spiritual practice is needed for that. I'd bash away at Dawkins for being a blind scientist who just thinks human beings are lumps of meat. I'd say that he has no right to criticize religion when he hasn't properly considered all the religions and what they're saying.

    Shame on me!  lipsrsealed

    Funny though, Amazon never once deleted any of my many negative reviews on Dawkins, but they did delete a review I once wrote criticizing a religious book. They told me that religious intolerance is not allowed on Amazon. I guess Atheist intolerance is allowed though. There are many hostile (even abusive) reviews on all of Dawkins' books.



     

    The misspelling in my name is intentional, because I'm an idiot and I can't spell properly. But I'd probably also say that even if it was a mistake. Does that clear things up?
