Watch this. His reading of hate mail in part two should be a stand alone clip.
I'm not good at jokes, but as you haven't rated it or commented on it, I'll walk into your cleverly laid trap:
I don't really understand why he thinks the majority of people think Napoleon existed and the world is round because they are facts supported by evidence; we believe them because we are told about them, exactly like a religious persuasion. Everybody has different criteria for what they consider to be a sound argument or proof, and I think he should be more focused on people not having sufficient criteria rather than simply accepting Darwin.
As noble as I think this man is, he has no real understanding of rhetoric.
Of course, the words 'opinion' and 'fact' are entirely interchangeable. I don't get why he doesn't get that.
"No one is more dangerous than someone who thinks he has "The Truth". To be an atheist is almost as arrogant as to be a fundamentalist." -Tom Lehrer
I agree 100% with Dawkins, but he REALLY comes off as a total and complete douche bag. He's basically preaching to the converted, so to speak. His fellow atheists see him as some sort of demigod, his opponents see him as a tool of Satan, and the moderate agnostics just see him like Mr. Lehrer does.
It was more than you deserved
And yet, you did it! I feel so honored.
