Richard Dawkins

If you were to actually travel around schools and universities and listen in on lectures about evolution, you might find a fairly substantial fraction of young people, without knowing what it is they disapprove of, think they disapprove of it, because they've been brought up to.More Richard Dawkins quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry.More Richard Dawkins quotes [07/14/2011 05:07:15]
I think nobody would claim that random genetic drift is capable of producing adaptation, that is to say the illusion of design. Random genetic drift can't produce wings that are good at flying, or eyes that are good at seeing, or legs that are good at running. But random genetic drift probably is very important in driving evolution at the molecular genetic level.More Richard Dawkins quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The mob hysteria over pedophiles has reached epidemic proportions and driven parents to panic. Today's Just Williams, today's Huck Finns, today's Swallows and Amazons are deprived of the freedom to roam that was one of the delights of childhood in earlier times (when the actual, as opposed to the perceived, risk of molestation was probably no less).More Richard Dawkins quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Let our tribute to the dead be a new resolve: to respect people for what they individually think, rather than respect groups for what they were collectively brought up to believe.More Richard Dawkins quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
