Exposing Evolution As A Mess and Atheism As Hot-Air!

Tyson: Dawkins Not Much Of an Educator

with 17 comments

It is interesting but I do not even think he is interested in truth but some publisher is paying him 3 million dollars for his next book because he will sell books.

You see what he does is deception , he wants the audience to believe that science has ruled out God and there is no need to go into detailed debates on the specifics like the dating techniques and the validitly of Darwinism.  Sometimes he says scientist are still working on it but let us rule out God as an explanation in the mean time.

  1. Still, science DOES show that you don’t need to invoke the Christian God to explain anything (e.g. astrophysics, chemistry, biology, etc., all work just fine without God). You have to give Dawkins props for pointing that out.

  2. The “validitly” of evolution (it’s not called “Darwinism”) is not in question any more than it is in question that stars exist. It’s a fact, like the fact that computers were invented by human beings and that water is neither acidic nor basic.

    Dawkins wants to educate about science. He’s dedicated his whole life to that. If you don’t like facts, you can go cry yourself a river.

  3. Dan thak you for your comments I would like to direct you to a video Dawkins admitting that scienientist are still working on how the universe came about.

    For example what made non life become life?

  4. “Dan thak you for your comments I would like to direct you to a video Dawkins admitting that scienientist are still working on how the universe came about.”

    Right – that would be a reference to classical deism, not to theism, and most definitely not the Christian God who performs miracles and answers prayers. If you go back and re-read my comment – I specifically said the Christian God, and not deities in general.

  6. A Jewish God from which part of the Old Testament? Before the book of Job, Yahweh was a theistic God directly involved in their daily lives. After Job, Yahweh took a “hands off” policy that’s consistent with Classical Deism.

    (The Torah and the OT of the Bible have the same books, but are arranged in a different order, in case you go looking in your Bible for exceptions)

  9. Job, I think you are making it up with the after Job, god is hands off. If you read books such as Jeremiah, you see an interventionist God.

  10. Yes, I know that Jeremiah comes after Job in the Old Testament of the Bible. In the Torah, however, Jeremiah comes first. (religious scholars of both religions agree that books in both the Bible and the Torah are not arranged chronologically)

    I mentioned this in comment #6 above – please pay attention.

  11. Correction – I meant ‘order in which they were written,’ not chronologically.

    Have read the book of daniel by any chance, then you see a God who enters time and space.

  13. Yes, I’ve read it. And I just went back and did a search command for all instances of “God” or “god” in Daniel. God doesn’t appear or do anything, aside from Daniel’s dreams and visions. No God in time or space there.

  17. Dawkins is truly the emissary of science. Like Niel Tyson deGrasse pointed out though… the way he attempts to convey his message can be somewhat cold and barbed. He lacks that tiny element of persuasion needed to coax the blind sheep he attempts to educate.

    Other than his “uncompassionate” like behavior, Dawkins really is very brilliant and positive for science itself.
