Richard Dawkins

I am almost done reading an Ancestors Tale by Richard Dawkins.

I will post a review about it when I am done with it (most likely tomorrow), but I was wondering, what are you views on the professional biologist/neomilitant atheist?

I have read The God's Delusion also (after I became an atheist), and I thought it was a decent book.

However I am not sure how I feel about the man. He seems a bit cocky, but I think that comes when you have worked so hard to get to such a prestigious position in life.

Your thoughts?

  7. Sometimes you just have to look past the cockiness; the work he does in passing science onto a public that most often isn't receptive far outweighs it.

  9. I agree that he is a bit cocky but most of the time he has a legit point to make.

  18. Richard Dawkins is brilliant! Getting to the position that he is in today must have been incredibly difficult when you consider how much animosity there is towards atheists.
