For the record...

I am an atheist, and I hate this guy. He completely misrepresents the vast majority of atheists through his militant attacks on religion. Atheists in general are in a state of spiritual neutrality, neither believing or, as some religious people put it, "disbelieving" or "rejecting". I know that is the case for me.

Atheism, as defined by the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, and other philosophy reference works, is the denial of the existence of God.[1][2][3] Jesus said, ""He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me, scatters." In short, there is no neutrality. conservative 10:38, 2 May 2011 (EDT)

Journal Nature and Richard Dawkins

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.[4][5]

Women's views of Richard Dawkins

In all likelihood, a Women's views of Richard Dawkins section is going to be added to the Richard Dawkins article. The traffic statistics for indicates his female audience is below average and of course there are a variety of likely reasons for this.[6][7] For example, many women are not fond of men with abrasive demeanors and men who lack courage. But of course, that is only a few of the explanations and more will of course be offered. conservative 04:41, 11 June 2010 (EDT)

Reference #3

"Richard Dawkins is known for his vehement and sometimes vitriolic promotion of atheism and the evolutionary paradigm. Dawkins has repeatedly likened religious faith to a mental defect despite the fact that atheists are more likely to commit suicide than believers in the existence of God and the plentitude of studies associating theism with better mental and physical health."

The above stated is in no way related to the article the citation gives for it. I ask that you please remove it or find an accurate source. We must in all cases try to report correct information if we are going to try to win people over.

Please elaborate. I am not sure what you are referring to.conservative 20:00, 20 June 2010 (EDT)

On the Richard Dawkins page the third citation is an article in the ny times. It does not mention anything in regards to the studies that atheists are more likely to commit suicide or studies associating theism with better mental and physical health.

Thanks. conservative 22:45, 30 June 2010 (EDT)

Conservapedia recently became aware of a highly critical article of Richard Dawkins....

Conservapedia recently became aware of a highly critical article of Richard Dawkins that just came out which lodges legitimate criticisms of Mr. Dawkins. Of course, Conservapedia intends to incorporate the material in the Conservapedia Richard Dawkins article. conservative 00:30, 23 June 2010 (EDT)

Review of the Conservapedia Richard Dawkins article being done by Christian apologist

A review of the Conservapedia (CP) Richard Dawkins article is expected to be done soon by a Christian apologist who has written various criticisms of Richard Dawkins' material. After the review is completed, the CP Richard Dawkins article may receive some further updates. conservative 22:10, 20 September 2010 (EDT)

Photograph of Adolf Hitler

Why does a photograph of Adolf Hitler accompany this article? User:Splainer1984

Splainer1984, since you are able to write, I am assuming you are able to read the caption below the picture. conservative 21:39, 2 May 2011 (EDT)
I think Splainer is asking why the first image is of Hitler rather than of Dawkins. Also, it could be better to cite a transcript rather than one small quote which could be (potentially) taken out of context to suggest that Dawkins supports Nazism. User:MFlem 19:08, 11 May 2001 (BST)

The quote is a very telling quote - especially given the barbarism of Hitler's policies. Putting the picture and quote at the top of the article highlights the matter. The quote has a footnote for those who desire more context. By the way, the Conservapedia Richard Dawkins article is gaining more visibility in the UK with each passing day. This holds true for other English speaking countries as well.

As of May 11, 2011 the article had good visibility in India as well. India, being a peaceful country with the lowest divorce rate in the world (or at least one of the lowest divorce rates in the world), probably is not enamored of the abrasive Richard Dawkins who is on his third wife. Of course, in light of the speciousness of Dawkins' work and his lack of zeal in adequately defending his work, it wouldn't surprise me if most Indians have never heard of him. conservative 22:53, 11 May 2011 (EDT)

I can't believe it took you 14 edits to say that. LloydR 23:10, 11 May 2011 (EDT)
Are you familiar with the style over substance fallacy? By the way, I hope the rest of your posts are not so picayune. conservative 23:37, 11 May 2011 (EDT)
