He edited the Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing this year…and I got it, it’s too good not to get.
But this man should not have the post he has.
This is the man who said children should be discouraged from reading Harry Potter because it might give them unscientific ideas.
Leigh Brackett couldn’t’ve written this, and neither could Ray Bradbury. “Scientists for Proscription”. It’s simply astonishing.
George W. Bush has a lot to answer for. It wasn’t just Dennis Miller who got stung by 9/11, wasn’t just Christopher Hitchens. Who counts the cost on the other side?
Honestly, this shit’s got to end. Rupert Sheldrake sounds like the voice of fucking reason compared to Dawkins. Dawkins is driving me to witchcraft, voodoo, astrology. I don’t think Dawkins really understands or likes science, any more than he likes or understands history. I am beginning to despair of him.
James Randi would tell you: there’s no one in this world easier to fool than a scientist.
Dawkins has bent his mind just like a spoon. Of course there IS no spoon.
Don’t tell HIM that, though. He’ll accuse you of not being a proper Vulcan.
Actually, it’s disgraceful.
