I fail to understand why this man would have decided to ask this question. He seems to sincerely think he's got himself a real case-closer.

I know I know, you go on and on about pink elephants and people are seeing pink elephants and isn't it ridiculous, believing you saw a pink elephant. But look man.
I saw the most fucking amazing pink elephant the other day. What have you got to say about that?

The stifled laughter at the guys question.

I don't see what is so cruel about it. Cruel would have been if he had walked over and slapped the guy as hard as he could, then used a nailgun to pin his hands and feet to the floor, then shit on his chest saying "WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?" over and over again while laughing and eating a hoagie.
Yeah but that would still not hurt the guy as much as proving to him Jesus doesn't exist. That will fuck that guys world up, might even kill him. You have to break that shit gently, some people just need religion to make their brains function. Dawkins knows that, but Dawkins is an asshole about it.
You need someone like Sagan to explain it in a nice way, a way that lets you have God and science and that feeling of wonder if you want, instead of "Hmm yes but you see, there is no God. lol pwnt n00b"

Two dicks. Rubbing together furiously. Dawkins' Dick on top. Dawkins' dick is the alpha dick.

This thing that only I saw and experienced clearly can NOT be a delusion!!

People here seem to like Dawkins when he's at his most, I don't know what to call it, atheistic. Everyone is quick to say that he's much more measured and speculative in the bulk of his writing and speaking, and that's true, but the stuff that shows up here and gets everyone rah rahing is his most acerbic or confrontational, not his most thoughtful.
It's gets pretty tiresome hearing this kind of thing.
Exactly at what point do secular people earn the right to be dismissive and exhausted by the religious and what they are doing/have done to the world? It's not like Dawkins is standing at a pulpit saying gays should be put to death or that people who are not Christians are "enemies of god." Why is it religion always brings out the white knights who want everyone to be nice and respectful of religion, but when someone expresses their disdain of the church with polite but focused, curt intelligence they act as if they're doing something horrible wrong?
The old guy is confronting him and he's giving him an honest response, but being dismissive for good reason. Then he gets death threats at his home for doing so. Exactly WHY is Dawkins the bad guy again?
