The tolerant openmindedness of Richard Dawkins.

“It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet someone who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane (or wicked, but I’d rather not consider that).”

- Richard Dawkins

  1. Now isn’t that interesting? Richard Dawkins and I would be in near total agreement if the word “not” weren’t in his quote – except that I generally assume that all men are desperately depraved and wicked as a default position until I’m presented with evidence to the contrary.

    There are only two races of mankind, the redeemed race and the unredeemed race.

    Richard Dawkins by word and deed hails from the latter, what about you?

    I met Dawkins once and man, he is so cruel – I wanted to demolish my facem had it not been there were security guards there…

    I’ve since learnt violence is wrong, but he still manages to annoy me with his uncultured antics…for a man of education, you’d think he’d learn some manners and allow people their own opinion, be they wrong or right.

  3. Lately I’ve been struck with how hostile unbelievers are toward Christians. But I shouldn’t have been surprised…

    “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you;” John 15:18-19.

    Greetings Jason,

    Jason you are correct 100%. However, it doesn’t stop with the world.

    Not only the world hates us, but personally, I have witnessed more hostility from false-Christians than any other group to include atheist. These heretics, who claim they know and worship Jesus of the Bible, profess a false gospel and false spirit… I have had some suggest that the need of prayer, forgiveness and repentance is needless! Whereas once one has been forgiven early in their walk regardless what happens within their lives, daily asking for further forgiveness is useless. According to false followers, too suggest that one needs to pray, “Forgive us this day and forgive those who trespass against us”, makes one have a religious mean condemning spirit; amazingly this is the Jesus that they claim too worship and the same Jesus that instructed them to do so……..

    I have had cultic-Christians inform me that they are no longer sinners, upon salvation, and the more you provide Bible scripture the madder they seem to get. They claim healings, signs and wonders but Lord Jesus is not in the mix, by claiming these miracles without prayer, repentance, biblical education or any indication of Christianity whatsoever. They claim they never say that they don’t have sin in their lives but they refuse to repent and deny being a sinner (that’s nuts or old fashion self-righteousness)???? I see it like this; if one smokes then they are a smoker, and a walker walks and sinners-sin… I have been called almost every name under sun by so-called Christians, especially lately and from followers of cultic demi-christian organizations. I have been called a liar, accuser and not a Christian for sharing only scripture. One common and easy way to identify them (outside calling me names) comes with their personal ignorance of God Word…..

    Jason, I am afraid it is not getting better soon with all of this apostasy floating around.

    Jesus is Lord

  5. You know, I find it shocking the similarities that can be found between the mind of Dawkins and that of another twisted and evil individual. When comparing the Dawkins quote with this quote I see the mindset can be traced back to the same source: an utter contempt and loathing for God, His truth, and His Word.

    “One day we want to be in a position where only complete idiots stand in the pulpit and preach to old women.” - Adolf Hitler

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.
