#rsrh QotD, Richard Dawkins Is Kind Of Mixed-Up Inside, Huh? Edition.

Look, I really do have nothing against atheists.  But when you write something like this:

“Christopher Hitchens, finest orator of our time, fellow horseman, valiant fighter against all tyrants including God,” fellow atheist and author Richard Dawkins tweeted.

…you have to understand: you’re not exactly swaying me to your position.  For that matter: you’re not really persuading me of your atheism, either.  Seriously, I look at that and I can easily conclude that Richard Dawkins believes in God even more strongly than I do: he just hates His guts.

PS: I hope Hitch got through it OK.

  1. A few thoughts,

    Your commentary Reminds me of the ending to Graham Greene’s “End of the Affair”. . . the book. I didn’t much care for the movie. The book was masterful.

    I always held out some hope that Christopher Hitchens would, like his brother Peter, become a former atheist.

    Richard Dawkins probably derives 3/4 of his book sales and other revenue from Christians buying his book listening to his lectures and debates and whatnot.

  2. My pastor while I was growing said something around 20 years ago that has stuck with me, “I wish I had the faith of an atheist. Because I can’t think of anything other than an all consuming faith in an idea that would allow you to look at this world and deny that there is a God.”

  3. I’m flashing back to the South Park two-part episode about the future world where everyone’s an atheist– and they’re fighting viciously between the atheist groups as to what is the proper name that atheists should use for themselves.

  4. And Finrod–I was thinking of “Life of Brian”.
    ‘To be in the People’s Front of Judea, you’ve got to really hate the Romans.’
    ‘I do.’
    ‘Oh yeah? How much?’
    ‘A lot.’
    ‘Right, then. You’re in.’

  5. That has been my experience as well: atheists secretly suspect/intuit there actually is a God.

    They just don’t want one to exist and hate that reality and also those who are willing to believe (and thus change their life accordingly.)
