Richard Dawkins thinks children should be taken away from religious parents by the state wants to banish fairy stories, but he’s just fine with “mild pedophilia”.
The more he opens his mouth, the more I agree with Vox Day that he and the people who regard him as a guiding light give every indication that they are somewhere on the autism spectrum and just don’t seem to process social, emotional, and affective cues like most of the population. Some years back, the guys who made “Expelled” made a video designed make fun of Dawkins and Co.
I don’t buy the ID arguments of the filmmakers. But it didn’t take a rocket scientist to understand this was mocking Dawkins. Dawkins, however, was baffled, as were his acolytes who took a long time to process this difficult concept called “humor”. Eventually, they figured it out, but I have ever after seen their social interactions, including this recent display regarding pedophilia and previous altercations (chronicled by sensible atheist Phil Plait, who has been shouting “Don’t be a Dick” into the gale force winds of hostile internet atheist social cluelessness for years).
I will take Dawkins and Co. description of themselves as “Bright” when they stop acting so obviously dim. Meantime, I nominate Dawkins for President of the League of Dwight K Schrute Internet Atheists.
