The smugness emanating out of you never ceases to amaze me. As I said: best of luck laughing at Christians. People like you have been pointing the finger and persecuting for centuries. They haven't been particularly successful.You can certainly try. I reserve the right to laugh at you though.
Actually the mis-application of Darwin there; social or economic Darwinism.What a classic example of evolution in action.
Those who have adapted to the new electronic age have the edge over those who haven't.
The blurb on the back of one of his books said it all - ''makes the reader feel like he is a genius.''Dawkins is certainly not the best proponent. Not by a long shot. James, Santayana and Russell are far superior.

An easy job done magnificently.
Next Thursday Richard Dawkins will be giving a talk on his new book at the RDS Concert Hall. The Irish Times is offering free seats to the lucky folk who possess a mobile phone and register for the event by text !
This kind of exclusion is becoming a nightmare for those of us not of the chosen people!
I have never owned a mobile phone!
Meanwhile we all know ignorance of the Law is no excuse.
Therefore the First law of the Really New Testament is: Thou Shalt face the facts of Evolution. Think, and rise from your knees.
