Dawkins on Hitchens

Richard Dawkins reviews god is not Great. It's a great review, and Dawkins says all the right things.

(h/t to Geoff Arnold)


  1. Barefoot Bum,

    You have to read this guy and his take on Dawkins review of Hitchens (and my discussion with him). I think you might find it interesting because he apparently fancies himself a bit of a philosopher.

  2. Meh. Parableman is a garden-variety double-digit IQ theistard. I've "argued" against a gazillion guys like him and it always ends up with me banging my head against the wall.

  3. I know what you mean. I found endless flaws in his post and his comments to me and didn't bother to take them point-by-point. It seemed useless. I really don't usually do what I did there. Once in a while I will, but it DOES feel like banging the head against a wall.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
