Richard Dawkins. Enough said!

Jul 13, 2011

Oxford University once at the highest rank of most advanced thought and mind of mankind, has reached such a low ebb that is now spreading through its Professor Richard Dawkins, a narrow-minded materialistic-atheist view of the creation denying God and exalting Darwin. Indeed if after more than 30 years of education Dawkins denies God then we can safely go to Professor Cow who does the same without 30 years of education and hence is far superior to Professor Dawkins!

Richard Dawkins' fervor for the subject and obvious frustration with the lack of education available about the scientific facts so far established is evident throughout this series.. A real treat is to watch the extended interviews and see how long it takes before you start shouting at some of the people he interviews . I am still wondering though , why he wasn't willing to accept the possibilty that it was a higher being that initiated the existence of the origin of man.
