Richard Dawkins in Australia
Richard Dawkins has come amongst us, preaching the doctrine of evolution with his usual zeal. Leaving aside a huge number of issues, including the fact that I don't think evolution and a belief in the unknowable are exclusive, I find it hard to embrace the views of a man who appears to be both humourless and overflowing with self-regard. Still, when I heard an anti-gay marriage advocate on the ABC's 'World Today' refer to 'The righteous, perfect hate of god', I had to concede that Dawkins's attacks on believers are not all unjust.
