If the agnostic Richard Dawkins finally agreed to debate Dr. William Lane Craig and a scientist at Creation Ministries International instead of making pitiful excuses, would Hispanic ladies finally believe Señor Dawkins has machismo? [1] Olé! Olé! Olé!

On May 14, 2011, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph published a news story entitled Richard Dawkins accused of cowardice for refusing to debate existence of God.[2]

In The Daily Telegraph article Dr. Daniel Came, a member of the Faculty of Philosophy at Oxford University, was quoted as writing to fellow atheist Richard Dawkins concerning his refusal to debate Dr. William Lane Craig: "The absence of a debate with the foremost apologist for Christian theism is a glaring omission on your CV and is of course apt to be interpreted as cowardice on your part."[3]

Question: Is the agnostic and evolutionist Richard Dawkins a man filled with courage, truth, and conviction or a man who is a cowardly pseudo intellectual pantywaist?

To help answer this question, consider this excerpt from that was quoted from a column at

So Mary Kenny thinks that there are more atheist men than women, and that this is the result of some sort of attempt at overt manliness on their part. She really must try to pay attention - to Richard Dawkins, for example whom one could hardly describe as being the epitome of machismo."[4][5]

Señor Dawkins is not the epitome of machismo? Why might this be the case? Was this unfortunate situation caused by nature? Was it caused by nurture? Is it merely a reflection of his free will?

One of the definitions of machismo is an "exhilarating sense of power or strength".[6] Concerning Richard Dawkins' work, it would be very difficult for Señor Dawkins to have and exhilarating sense of power or strength. Polling in 2006 indicates that less than half of the US and British populace accept the evolutionary paradigm as the best description for the development of life. In addition. polling indicates that the evolutionary paradigm has many skeptics in the United States.[7]

Although Dawkins declared that he was an agnostic in 2006 and 2012, in 2002 Richard Dawkins publicly argued for the position of militant atheism and claimed that he will not feel anything after death (see also: Ex-atheists).[8] In other words atheists, the former militant atheist Richard Dawkins retreated into the wimpy position of agnosticism. Of course, given the great wealth of proof and evidence for Christianity, this is certainly not surprising. Agnostics often call themselves "weak atheists". Of course, weakness is the exact opposite of machismo!

Señor Dawkins was clearly outmatched and defeated by Rebecca Watson and the Skepchick señoritas during his Elevatorgate scandal.

Also, Señor Dawkins' New Atheism campaign has not had much of an impact in terms of gaining new adherents to atheism. In a March 10, 2008 USA Today article Stephen Prothero declared the following regarding the impact of the "New Atheism":

Numbers lie, but they also tell tales untrustworthy and otherwise. So the key question stirring around the much discussed U.S Religious Landscape Survey released in late February by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life is what tale does it state about the state of the union.

For some, the story of this survey, based on interviews in multiple languages with more than 35,000 adults, is the strength of American Religion.

Not too long ago, I wrote that American atheism was going the way of the freak show. As books by Christopher Hitchens and other "new atheists" climbed the best seller lists, I caught a lot of flak for that prophecy. But atheist make up only 1.6% of respondents to this survey....

A prime reason for the ineffectiveness of the "New Atheism" is the shallowness of its material. For example, even atheist philosopher Michael Ruse stated that Richard Dawkins' book The God Delusion made him "embarrassed to be an atheist".[9]

Evidently, Señor Dawkins books do not appear to be having much of an impact among the public or the intelligentsia which must make Señor Dawkins feel impotent - especially when he compares his personal impotence to God's omnipotence. On the other hand, if Señor Dawkins converted to Christianity he could step out of the mire of impotency and receive power from on high.

Furthermore, lately Richard Dawkins is fretting because the public doesn't like him.[10] What further proof do we need? No man with machismo frets about his popularity. High school girls worry about their popularity!

Next, it is hard to believe that Señor Dawkins has machismo because his work is so filled with pseudoscience. Within the evolutionary science community and the creation science community, Richard Dawkins has faced charges of engaging in pseudoscience and has also faced charges of committing elementary errors.[11][12][13][14]

The website True Free Thinker notes:

Moreover, note that with regards to “assertions without adequate evidence” evolutionary biologist and geneticist, Prof. Richard Lewontin, referenced Carl Sagan’s list of the “best contemporary science-popularizers” which includes Richard Dawkins. These authors have, as Lewontin puts it, “put unsubstantiated assertions or counterfactual claims at the very center of the stories they have retailed in the market.” Lewontin specifically mentions “Dawkins’s vulgarizations of Darwinism” (find details here and here).

Even renowned evolutionary biologists H. Allen Orr, David Sloan Wilson, and Massimo Pigliucci have called into question the power that Dawkins once had as an intellectual, since he has made elementary errors in The God Delusion.[15]

As far as the social science of history, Richard Dawkins has engaged in historical revisionism when it comes to the mass murders committed by atheists. In addition, in 2010, the journal Nature featured an interview with the evolutionist, biologist, and atheist David Sloan Wilson who criticized Richard Dawkins for denying the evidence for the societal benefits of religion.[16][17]

Many of Richard Dawkins detractors are conservative Christians which is not surprising. The Wall Street Journal reported: "A comprehensive new study released by Baylor University yesterday, shows that traditional Christian religion greatly decreases belief in everything from the efficacy of palm readers to the usefulness of astrology. It also shows that the irreligious and the members of more liberal Protestant denominations, far from being resistant to superstition, tend to be much more likely to believe in the paranormal and in pseudoscience than evangelical Christians."[18] In the United States, CBS News reported in October of 2005 that the Americans most likely to believe only in the theory of evolution are liberals.[19]


Richard Dawkins admits he is a weak atheist!

See also: True atheists and the danger of relying in self-identification

Much to the dismay of militant atheists, Richard Dawkins declared he is a weak atheist which is nothing more than a wimpy agnostic at best! Please see: Richard Dawkins and agnosticism.

Needless to say, weak atheist do not have as much machismo as Bible believers. Previously, Richard Dawkins advocated militant atheism which has even less machismo than weak atheism (see: Irreligion and superstition and New Atheism leadership's problem with excess weight).[20]

Stephen Colbert, agnostics, weak atheists and a few questions

Colbert performing a bit on The Daily Show

Stephen Colbert: "What is an agnostic but an atheist without any balls?"[21]

Are you an atheist? If so, what proof and evidence do you have that atheism is true? The reason I ask is that Christianity has an abundance of sound evidence supporting it. See: Evidence for Christianity

Are you a weak atheist?

Agnostics often call themselves "weak atheists". Of course, weakness is antithetical to machismo!

Richard Dawkins and flip-flopping

The article Atheism is rudderless and unseaworthy written by a supporter of the Question evolution! campaign wrote: "Christians should call Dawkins on his disingenuous flip-flopping if his publisher continues to promote the book as a book focusing on his journey to atheism without mentioning the fact that Dawkins is presently an agnostic who has rejected atheism."[22]

Richard Dawkins is terrified of Islam

Richard Dawkins
Richard Dawkins is dismissive of the concept of Islamophobia and declared: "I’m always being accused of Islamophobia, that’s a non-word."[23]

See also: Richard Dawkins is terrified of Islam

There is ample evidence that Richard Dawkins is afraid of Islam (See: Richard Dawkins and Islamophobia).

Richard Dawkins is dismissive of the concept of Islamophobia and declared: "I’m always being accused of Islamophobia, that’s a non-word."[24] Dawkins' denial that the word Islamophobia is a word in the English language is a classic case of a man living in denial.

Whether or not not Dawkins' fans wish to admit or not, Dawkins turns into a quivering mass of jello whenever he sees burkas, hookah bars, figs, dates, shish kebabs and camels!

Bible believers are not afraid of Islam

The Bible teaches "The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion" (Proverb 28:1, NASB). In addition, the Bible repeatedly teaches to "fear not".[25] Furthermore, the Bible teaches "The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted (Proverbs: 29:25 NASB).

So from a biblical worldview, there is no reason to fear Islam/Muslim extremists/Muslims. If Richard Dawkins was as brave as Bible believers, he would not endlessly fret and obsess about Islam and Muslims.

Unlike Napoléon Bonaparte, Richard Dawkins did not take his Waterloo like a man

The Elevatorgate scandal was Richard Dawkins' Waterloo.

Yet, unlike Napoléon Bonaparte, Richard Dawkins did not take his Waterloo like a man (see: Unlike Napoléon Bonaparte, Richard Dawkins failed to take his Waterloo like a man).

Question: What real men complains about being bullied by women! Would Napoléon Bonaparte complain about being bullied by women?

Would Napoleon Bonaparte complain about being bullied by women? See: Richard Dawkins' Waterloo

Señor Dawkins' intellectual bunny hole

See also: Atheism and cowardice

Recently, a Christian apologist called Richard Dawkins a "cowardly clown" for refusing to debate apt debate challengers such as the creation scientists at Creation Ministries International.[26] Dr. Jonathan Sarfati recently published the book The Greatest Hoax on Earth which rebuts Richard Dawkins' recent book The Greatest Show on Earth.[27]

It is very hard to believe Señor Dawkins has the conviction that his work can withstand scrutiny. For example, it is time for Señor Dawkins to debate Dr. William Lane Craig and stop dodging this debate. It is time for Señor Dawkins to erase the embarrassing Rabbi Boteach debate loss and the truly embarrassing events that surrounded it through an attempted debate victory. The deep shame that Señor Dawkins obviously must feel about the Rabbit Boteach debate and the events surrounding it, could be replaced with strong feelings of masculinity and bravado even if Señor Dawkins lost the debate which he would inevitably do (Rabbi Boteach has given Mr. Dawkins an opportunity to debate him again so Mr. Dawkins could gain back some of his manhood, but Richard Dawkins has yet to take him up on his most generous and kind offer).

Now setting aside the unpleasantness of the Rabbi Boteach debate for a moment, it is also time for Richard Dawkins to debate Dinesh D'Souza. And it is most certainly time for Richard Dawkins to debate Creation Ministries International. [28]

Now granted, it will be quite humbling for Dawkins to lose all these debates, but at least Señor Dawkins can claim to possess a measure of machismo. Of course, if Señor Dawkins published fine works in the field of Christian apologetics, Señor Dawkins would have great confidence his work could withstand scrutiny and he wouldn't have to spend so much time in his "intellectual bunny hole" hiding from strong debaters of the opposition. It is very sad to see the machismo challenged Señor Dawkins hide in his wretched intellectual bunnyhole when he could do so much better.

Western atheism, smaller frontal lobes and smaller machismo

Graphic of cerebral lobes. Light brown section of the graphic depicts the area of the frontal lobe. (Click on graphic to enlarge)

See also: Religiosity and larger frontal lobes

According to Scientific American:

Several studies have revealed that people who practice meditation or have prayed for many years exhibit increased activity and have more brain tissue in their frontal lobes, regions associated with attention and reward, as compared with people who do not meditate or pray.[29]

Atheist Greta Christina wrote at the website

A lot of atheists, humanists, and other nonbelievers are leery or dismissive of meditation and mindfulness. Some see it as an irretrievably religious or spiritual practice, and want no part in it. Others are put off by the faddish, overused, buzzword quality of the practice and the terminology. And I can understand that. For years, I stayed away from trying this stuff out, for exactly those reasons. I was interested in the practice—I had friends who did it, and who seemed to get a lot out of it. But I couldn’t find anyplace to learn that didn’t base their teaching on Buddhism or some other religion. And I’m too ardent an anti-religionist to “take what you need and leave the rest,” the way many nonbelievers do with religion. After all, I literally wrote the book on angry atheism. For me, trying to learn meditation in a Buddhist center would be like trying to learn meditation in a room full of fingernails scraping on blackboards.[30]

Although many atheists in the Western World are reluctant to meditate, in the East nontheist Buddhists often practice meditation.[31]

Functions of the frontal lobe declares about the frontal lobe:

The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that controls important cognitive skills in humans, such as emotional expression, problem solving, memory, language, judgment, and sexual behavior. It is, in essence, the “control panel” of our personality and our ability to communicate.

It is also responsible for primary motor function, or our ability to consciously move our muscles, and the two key areas related to speech, including Broca’s area.

The frontal lobe is larger and more developed in humans than in any other organism.[32]

Research indicates that religious women (especially evangelical/low church Protestant women) are more sexually satisfied than irreligious women.[33]

See also: Atheism and sexuality

Religious, frontal lobes and sexuality

As noted above, the frontal lobe plays a role in controlling sexual behavior.[34]

Research indicates that religious women (especially evangelical/low church Protestant women) are more sexually satisfied than irreligious women.[35][36][37] See also: Atheism and women

In 2011, The Daily Beast conceded in an article entitled Why Are Christians Having Better Sex Than the Rest of Us?, "The devout are actually having better sex than the rest of us."[38]

In the United States, the Republican Party has a large segment of religious conservatives and they are influential within the party.[39] ABC News reported that "More Republicans Satisfied With Sex Lives Than Democrats".[40]

As you can see, the scientific evidence clearly shows that religious men have more machismo!

There is a growing scientific consensus that atheists lack machismo - especially weak atheists.

Shrinking global atheist machismo and Señor Dawkins is powerless to stop it

Eric Kaufmann, a professor at Birkbeck College, University of London, using a a wealth of demographic studies, argues that there will be a significant decline of global atheism in the 21st century which will impact the Western World.[41]

Demographic data indicates that atheists have a sub-replacement level of fertility and religious conservatives have high fertility rates (Sub-replacement fertility of atheist populations. High fertility rate of religious conservatives).

On July 24, 2013, CNS News reported:

Atheism is in decline worldwide, with the number of atheists falling from 4.5% of the world’s population in 1970 to 2.0% in 2010 and projected to drop to 1.8% by 2020, according to a new report by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass."[42]

On December 23, 2012, Professor Eric Kaufmann who teaches at Birbeck College, University of London wrote:

I argue that 97% of the world's population growth is taking place in the developing world, where 95% of people are religious.

On the other hand, the secular West and East Asia has very low fertility and a rapidly aging population... In the coming decades, the developed world's demand for workers to pay its pensions and work in its service sector will soar alongside the booming supply of young people in the third world. Ergo, we can expect significant immigration to the secular West which will import religious revival on the back of ethnic change. In addition, those with religious beliefs tend to have higher birth rates than the secular population, with fundamentalists having far larger families. The epicentre of these trends will be in immigration gateway cities like New York (a third white), Amsterdam (half Dutch), Los Angeles (28% white), and London, 45% white British. [43]

Michael Blume, a researcher at the University of Jena in Germany, wrote "Most societies or communities that have espoused atheistic beliefs have not survived more than a century."[44] Blume also indicated concerning concerning his research on this matter: "What I found was the complete lack of a single case of a secular population, community or movement that would just manage to retain replacement level."[45]

Por favor Señor Dawkins! Less ruses and more machismo!

See also: Atheism and cowardice

Señor Richard Dawkins has publicly declared that he will not debate creationists.[46] Yet, Richard Dawkins debated the theist John Lennox who adheres to the position of intelligent design.[47] According to Richard Dawkins, intelligent design is a form of creationism/creation science.[48] Therefore, Richard Dawkins is not consistent and trustworthy concerning his assertion that he will not debate creationists (for more information please see: Señor Richard Dawkins' public refusal to debate creationists).[49] Evolutionists and atheists inconsistency concerning debating creationists was commented on by the Christian apologetic website True Free Thinker which declared: "Interestingly enough, having noted that since some atheists refuse to debate “creationists” but then go on to debate some of those people but not others, it is clear that they are, in reality, being selective and making excuses for absconding from difficulties..."[50] Señor Dawkins should debate those hombres at Creation Ministries International. Si?

Richard Dawkins and the troublesome Hispanic ladies

Señor Ben Stein displayed mucho machismo when he interviewed Señor Dawkins. Señor Stein was a masterful intelligent design matador! At the movie theatres, people stood up at the end of his movie and clapped [5] Olé! Olé! Olé!

According to Quantcast data for, it appears Richard Dawkins may not be very popular at all with Hispanic women.[11] Why is this so? Is it because Hispanic women think Richard Dawkins is an abrasive New Atheist who lacks charisma? No! That cannot be the problem! It is simply because Señor Dawkins lacks the manly confidence, attitude, and demeanor that many Hispanic ladies expect to see in a man and this can easily be explained.

One the reasons why Señor Dawkins acts unmanly in front of these Hispanic ladies is that he understandably lacks confidence. There are certainly indications of that he may be plagued by inner doubt concerning the legitimacy of atheism and the evolutionary paradigm. Señor Dawkins clearly squirmed when asked for an example of genetic information arising from a mutation and unmanly dodged the question with an unrelated monologue.

Also, there is the example of Señor Darwin doubting the legitimacy of the evolutionary paradigm. Late in Señor Darwin's life, Darwin told the Duke of Argyll that he frequently had overwhelming thoughts that the natural world was the result of design.[51] Señor Dawkins' inept response regarding the existence of God during his interview with Ben Stein certainly showed that Señor Dawkins lacks inward assurance concerning the validity of his atheism.VIDEOTEXT On the other hand, Señor Stein displayed mucho machismo.

The web traffic tracking company Quantcast indicates that Richard Dawkins' Asian lady viewership of his website is below average.[52] Conservapedia is not aware of the Asian American Connie Chung endorsing the book The God Delusion. Atheist philosopher Michael Ruse declared that Richard Dawkins' book The God Delusion made him "embarrassed to be an atheist".[6] Perhaps, Connie Chung read Michael Ruse's disparagement of The God Delusion and then refused to endorse the book despite Mr. Dawkins' incessant pleading.

Ladies have below average interest in Richard Dawkins?

See also: Richard Dawkins' lack of appeal to the Asian women audience

Much to Richard Dawkins dismay, the female viewership for is below average.[53][54] The root cause of course is his lack of machismo.

In addition, right now, Hispanic ladies are quite troublesome to Señor Dawkins. Hispanic women kick sand in Señor Dawkins' face when he goes to the beach because they are quite upset with Mr. Dawkins. The Hispanic ladies see the tough talking and outspoken Dawkins before the friendly liberal press, but Señor Dawkins avoids at all cost debating strong debaters from the opposition.

In addition, one of the Hispanic ladies talked to some of her Asian girlfriends and now the Asian ladies are unfavorable to Señor Dawkins too. So Richard Dawkins recently had Hispanic and Asian ladies kicking sand in his face at the beach. It was very sad that this spectacle happened, but Señor Dawkins brought it upon himself. And if this were not bad enough, the Hispanic ladies and Asian ladies talked to their Caucasian and African American girlfriends and now the entire female viewership for is below average![55][56]

So unfortunately for Señor Dawkins, he is a weak atheist showman who cannot enjoy a day at the beach. And to top it off, the web traffic tracking companies Alexa and Quantcast have the nerve to air Richard Dawkins' dirty laundry in public and now the whole world can see that ladies have below average interest in Richard Dawkins![57][58]

Improving Señor Dawkins' machismo

Now if Mr. Dawkins were to debate strong debaters who were Bible believers, Señor Dawkins could carefully observe how they walked, talked, and how they generally carried themselves. Using this information, Señor Dawkins could learn to act more manly. And if Mr. Dawkins were to do many of these debates, perhaps some of the manliness of these Bible believers could rub off on Señor Dawkins. Also, given all the courageous Christian women martyrs in history, Christian women debate opponents could serve as a role model for Señor Dawkins so he could be less of a chicken. Through continual debating of worthy opponents perhaps some day Señor Dawkins could earn the right to debate one of the most manly Bible believers in all of Chistendom - Señor Chuck Norris.

Perhaps with sustained effort, Señor Dawkins could convince a few prominent atheists to finally have the courage to debate any and all issues - even the creation vs. evolution issue! Then Richard Dawkins could say to Rabbi Boteach: You may have chutzpah, but I finally have MACHISMO!

Just think of the amazing possibilities! Instead of knowing deep down that he is merely Darwin's poodle, Señor Dawkins could aspire to be Darwin's fearless chihuahua! No more shrinking from debating creation scientists![59] Señor Dawkins could fearlessly charge like Don Quixote into creation vs. evolution debates despite the fact that evolutionists usually lose the creation vs. evolution debates! Next time the atheist community holds a worldwide convention, Señor Dawkins would challenge Creation Ministries International to debate instead of cowardly shrinking from debate.[60] Once Señor Dawkins had machismo, Señor Dawkins might dream of a "golden age of atheism". Given that atheists are a small minority in most of the world due to the folly of the atheist position, no doubt the tiny, rusty tin age of atheism that Señor Dawkins finds himself in now must be quite depressing to Señor Dawkins.

Perhaps through a sustained effort, Señor Dawkins could convince a few prominent atheists to finally have the courage to debate any and all issues - even the creation vs. evolution issue! Then Richard Dawkins could say to Rabbi Boteach: You may have chutzpah, but I finally have MACHISMO!

The Reverend Dr. Robert S. MacArthur pointed out that atheists are more likely to commit the cowardly act of suicide. Given that the atheist community didn't want the stigma of cowardly suicides to stain their community, the atheist community has tried many misguided attempts to become more manly. For example, they have studied the works of the secular psychologists in hopes of becoming more brave and masculine, but in all too many cases it failed to give them machismo. For example, via the coaching of atheist psychologists, primal scream therapy was tried using the most manly screaming and yelling atheists could muster, but to no avail.

Given that Sigmund Freud was an atheist, Freudian psychotherapy was tried. but this in fact made atheists less manly as they tried to blame all their faults on their parents. After all is said and done, the secular psychologists failed to make the atheists more manly than Bible believers. But, if Señor Dawkins was able to gain machismo, the atheist community could tell the world that they are less cowardly! Under the leadership of Señor Dawkins, perhaps some day wave after wave of kamikaze atheist and evolutionist debaters could be sent out to lose debate after debate after debate!

Señor Dawkins' humbling by Rabbi Boteach and the self induced mucho grande humiliation

See also: Atheism and cowardice

Getting back to Rabbi Boteach, Richard Dawkins losing a debate to Rabbi Boteach and then claiming the video taped debate never took place was certainly 24 karat comedic gold. Apparently, some proud atheists are not man enough to admit when they lose debates. Rabbi Boteach graciously offered to let Dawkins debate him another time, but evidently Richard Dawkins is too busy to debate him again.

But Señor Dawkins did have time to do something else. After the debate, Richard Dawkins publicly claimed Rabbi Boteach shrieked like Adolf Hitler! Surprising as it may be to some people, many people would consider telling a rabbi he shrieks like Hitler to be the mark of a man lacking social intelligence and common sense. The Germans have a saying for such bad and foolish behavior: "Too soon old, too late smart." Once again, biblical wisdom is triumphant much to the dismay of Richard Dawkins and company - "Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling." By the way, when is Richard Dawkins going to debate Dinesh D'Souza?

The best way for Señor Dawkins to gain mucho machismo!

After all is said done, of course, the best way for an atheists to gain a more courageous disposition is to stop being an atheist. The Apostle Paul wrote: "For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline." (2 Tim 1:7) King Solomon wrote: "The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion." (Proverbs 28:1 NASB) And of course, the Christian cup runneth over when it comes to proof and evidence for Christianity, while the atheism cup is bone dry when it comes to proof and evidence for atheism.

"Cowards die a thousand deaths. The valiant taste of death but once." - William Shakespeare

Note to kind and thoughtful ladies who want to see Richard Dawkins have machismo

According to the National Peanut Board, American women and children prefer creamy peanut butter, while most American men prefer chunky peanut butter.[61] Richard Dawkins is rumored to often have intense cravings for creamy peanut butter because he lacks machismo.

Please see this video of Richard Dawkins gagging on some creamy peanut butter.

The most unfortunate events above are no doubt most disheartening to kind and thoughtful ladies. Ladies, no doubt you are wondering how can I help Richard Dawkins gain machismo?

Conservapedia encourages you to phone, write and email Richard Dawkins concerning the solution to his most sad situation of being machismo challenged. And if you are in his neighborhood, knock on his door with a copy of the article Does Richard Dawkins have machismo? and exclaim "Praise God! I have the solution to your machismo problem, Mr. Dawkins." And then hand him a copy of Does Richard Dawkins have machismo? article! If Mr. Dawkins solves his lack of machismo problem, he will thank you for years to come!

The Atheist Experience blog at Freethoughtblogs reports distressing news

On October 12, 2011, The Atheist Experience blog at Freethoughtblogs declared:

They criticize atheists (especially Dawkins and people like Dawkins) for being dull, unpleasant, lacking machismo and being unappealing to women.[62]

Things are at a critical state! It appears that individuals (Yes, more than one person!) are saying that Señor Dawkins lacks machismo. This is so sad. And all of this could have been easily avoided. Dawkins merely had to debate William Lane Craig and some creation scientists.

Señor Dawkins' Elevatorgate scandal caused the death of the atheism movement?

If only Señor Dawkins had more social intelligence machismo and more emotional intelligence machismo, then the inevitable death of the atheist movement could have been delayed!

Señor Richard Dawkins is widely criticized for igniting deep fractures in the atheist movement through his Elevatorgate scandal. For example, on November 26, 2013, the atheist activist and blogger Jen McCreight posted at Twitter the message: "Did anyone on Dawkins AMA ask how he feels about singlehandedly destroying the atheist movement with the Dear Muslima yet?"[63] In December of 2013, atheist Jack Vance at Atheist Revolution called July 2, 2011, which is the day that Elevatorgate occurred, "The day the atheist movement died."[64]

A blogger at the popular Christian YouTube video maker Shockofgod's blog quipped:

Yes, my atheist friends, July 2, 2011 is the day that the atheist movement died on the information superhighway. I did not come to honor the atheism movement in this blog post, but to bury it. Those whose movement's come alive by the information superhighway, die by the information superhighway.[65]

Elevatorgate: Señor Dawkins' Waterloo

Señor Dawkins was clearly outmatched and defeated by Rebecca Watson and the Skepchick señoritas during his Elevatorgate scandal. Elevatorgate was Señor Dawkins' Waterloo. If Señor Dawkins had true machismo and not merely his angry faux machismo, he would be loved by atheist ladies and not be defeated by them. See: Atheism and anger

The New Statesman reporter and fellow skeptic David Allen Green said he believed Dawkins was a mysoginist and a racist.[66] In addition, Green wrote: "Can Richard Dawkins still credibly pose as a champion of rational thinking and an evidence-based approach? In my opinion, he certainly cannot, at least not in the way he did before."[67]

Why Richard Dawkins is acting like a high school girl post Elevatorgate

In May of 2014, "A writer for Creation Ministries International declares: 'Richard Dawkins upset that public doesn’t like him'.[68] Real men don't fret about their popularity. High school girls worry about their popularity!

More proof and evidence that atheists lack machismo

Richard Carrier

"Masculinity, for example, is a cultural construct that can be quite toxic, yet extremely difficult to escape if that’s how you were raised, worse if it remains the environment pressuring you to conform." - Atheist Richard Carrier[69]

In October of 2014, the popular YouTube atheist Thunderf00t commented on how Jen McCreight, the founder of the atheist feminist movement Atheism plus abandoned her movement within two weeks. And how Richard Carrier "the intellectual artillery" of the movement, quit promoting the movement within a month.[70]

Needless to say the Atheism plus movement lacked heavy, intellectual artillery!

On Twitter Donald Trump wrote: "I loved firing goofball atheist Penn @pennjillette on The Apprentice. He never had a chance. Wrote letter to me begging for forgiveness."[71]

The Guardian declares that Christians have machismo

From The Guardian: "Yet compared to the gentle cultivation of mindfulness that is Falun Gong, Christianity is an aggressive ballsy religion that has long historical form in picking fights and toppling dictatorships."[72]

Science proves that atheist "men" lack machismo

According to the leading science news website

Believing in God can help block anxiety and minimize stress, according to new University of Toronto research that shows distinct brain differences between believers and non-believers.

In two studies led by Assistant Psychology Professor Michael Inzlicht, participants performed a Stroop task - a well-known test of cognitive control - while hooked up to electrodes that measured their brain activity.

Compared to non-believers, the religious participants showed significantly less activity in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), a portion of the brain that helps modify behavior by signaling when attention and control are needed, usually as a result of some anxiety-producing event like making a mistake. The stronger their religious zeal and the more they believed in God, the less their ACC fired in response to their own errors, and the fewer errors they made...

Their findings show religious belief has a calming effect on its devotees, which makes them less likely to feel anxious about making errors or facing the unknown.[73]

Religious believers fear death the least

According to a study performed in the United States by researchers Wink and Scott, very religious people fear death the least.[74]

Muscular Christianity vs. weak atheism

Wikipedia has an article on Muscular Christianity and an atheist wiki has an article on weak atheism. The term "weak Christianity" does not exist and the term strong atheism is an oxymoron given that atheism lacks proof and evidence that it is true. On the other hand, Christianity has an abundant amount of evidence that it is true.

Of course, this proves once again that all atheists/agnostics lack machismo and that ALL true, Bible believing Christians have machismo. Even Sarah Palin has more machismo than the cowardly Richard Dawkins!

Richard Dawkins' loss of additional machismo post-Elevatorgate scandal

Alexa website traffic graph

An Alexa web traffic tracking graph showing the global market share of Richard Dawkins' website in June of 2012. The graph was featured in an article which contrasted the world's interest in Jesus compared to the world's interest in the evolutionist and agnostic Richard Dawkins.[75]

Richard Dawkins' loss of influence post-Elevatatorgate shown via Quantscast graphs

As can be seen by the graph below, by means of embedded code on his website from Quantcast, Quantcast directly measures the web traffic of Richard Dawkins' website. Traffic to Dawkins website is significantly down post-Elevatorgate scandal. See also: Internet atheism

Although his following of Dawkian atheist has significantly waned post-Elevatorgate and due to his generally abrasive manner, he does retain a small cult following (See: Richard Dawkins' loss of influence and Richard Dawkins' cult of personality and Atheist cults).

According to the web traffic tracking company Quantcast, the web traffic of Richard Dawkins's website fell in 2012.[76] By October of 2014, the web traffic for his website fell to a lower level according to Quantcast.[77]

Present web traffic according to Quantcast which directly measures Dawkins' website traffic

If the Richard Dawkins finally agreed to debate Dr. William Lane Craig and a scientist at Creation Ministries International instead of making pitiful excuses, would Hispanic ladies finally believe Señor Dawkins has machismo? [80]

Richard Dawkins commentary on Mary the Mother of Jesus

In 2010, the Christian apologetics website True Free Thinker wrote:

The atheist and evolutionist Richard Dawkins just referred to Mary, the mother of Jesus, as a ‘submissive cosmic doormat’...

If Richard Dawkins had a better grasp of womanhood and a greater grasp of manhood, he would still be married to his first wife and not his third.[81]

News Update

Rather than go mano y mano in a real debate with William Lane Craig, Richard Dawkins proves once again he has no machismo. Conservapedia recently learned that Dawkins took part in a atheist debate panel vs. theist debate panel in November of 2010 where each speaker spoke very briefly in surroundings that featured something resembling a disco light show and a boxing ring.VIDEO In short, it was a faux debate and certainly not a real debate.

Message to Mr. Dawkins: Will you ever venture out of your "intellectual bunny hole"? No doubt, He who sits in the heavens laughs at your cowardice.

When atheist Paul Kurtz was removed from a leadership post of an organization he founded, he described the event as a "shattering blow".[82] Would John Wayne have done likewise? Never! At best, "The Duke" would have said, "It's only a flesh wound." The Bible believer Chuck Norris would have done the same. The sad and ugly truth is that this is yet another example of atheists having no backbone! See: John Wayne vs. atheist Paul Kurtz

Richard Dawkins stumped
