Guardian article on Richard Dawkins

Go here for an article by Madeleine Bunting criticising Richard Dawkins - but on slightly different grounds than most of his critics would! It seems that her main argument is that Dawkins is wrong in slamming Christianity because he misinterprets it as belief as rational and intellectual, rather than 'faith' in strong and powerful myths.

In my view she's almost given Dawkins a helping hand although it is interesting that The Guardian published this. Needless to say the comments aren't particularly complimentary for the most part.

I don't have enough time to blog extensively on this right now - maybe Paul feels up to it?

  • Er, well, not at the moment, really - however, I did put a couple of sarcastic comments in the discussion ....

    Please find an Illuminated understanding of the reductionist scientism vs reductionistic exoteric religion shouting match via these references---neither side is talking about Real God or The Divine Conscious Light.

    Plus all the usual religionists, including Bunting, are talking about, and defending the childish self-serving mommy-daddy "creator" god that doesnt exist.

    All of the conventional entirely exoteric "religious" revival is a longing for the return and protection of this parental deity.
