Christians will continue to spread the Good News by the most effective means available to them.
You can certainly try. I reserve the right to laugh at you though.

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.

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.
Actually the mis-application of Darwin there; social or economic Darwinism.
Entirely subjective.
Equating economic materialism with 'progress' is a complete delusion.

(From observation, I can confidentally say that excessive mobile phone use makes people stupid, so the spread in their use is retro-evolutional.)

Dawkins is certainly not the best proponent. Not by a long shot. James, Santayana and Russell are far superior.
The blurb on the back of one of his books said it all - ''makes the reader feel like he is a genius.''
That and the full chapter he spent explaining how the astrology pages in the paper wouldn't give you accurate predictions.
Tabloid writer - preaches to the stupid, much like his own assessment of religious manipulation of the gullable.

Where did I associate it with progress ?

I am very tempt to go, just to shoot him. I wouldnt mind going down in history as the man who shot Richard Dawkins.
If you make him a martyr, his followers will make little Ikons of him, miracles will be reported.....

Over 6 decades, We oldies have purchased box cameras, valve radios, 78rpm record players, B/W tvs, transistor radios, cassette tapes, calculators, Electronic chess boards, CD players, PCs, digital cameras and Lap tops etc.

OK, a mobile phone is no big deal to an evolved senior citizen.

It's such a pity there are those unwilling to leave behind the ramblings of ancient charlatans.

The great Carl Sagan was a gentle Atheist but he had nowhere near the impact of Richard Dawkins on the question of religions and their retardationary impact on millions.

I consider him a rude ignorant *************************. As a person that loved reading about evolution and wants to be taught in school, I find it so annoying the way he just attacks religions, for no reason.
But there is very good reasons to attack superstitions. They are foisted on the young by indoctrinated adults.

It's a form of child abuse.

Why attack the messenger............a brilliant messaenger at that!

His new book has little to do with religion. It merely defends evolution against creationism.

An easy job done magnificently.
Creationism is Dawkins' very profitable bogeyman.
The worst the Brothers ever said to us was that evolution was probably true but not everybody believes it, twenty-someting odd years ago.
Even back then people s******************************ed at what was called the Bible-Belt.

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!

Dear Madam...........................


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.

'The chosen people' eh? You've had it now pal................
