  1. Can anyone really be shocked at Dawkins’ brazen lack of shame at this point? He is clueless to the world outside of his walled garden and steadfastly refuses to let in any opposing views, so mush so that he has taken to seeing fairies where there are none. Sad really for someone who fancies himself a skeptic.

    1. Mrmisconception,

      Dawkins joined forces with the “counter jihad” wingnuts long ago. Its only now the news has really gotten out. He’s hardly helping promote skepticism or critical thinking by doing stuff like this.

      I’d recommend someone like Skepchick’s own Heina Dadabhoy or the youtuber “Klingschor” or CEMBadmins ( The official youtube channel of the British Council of Ex Muslims ), if you want to see some real criticism of Islam from a secular humanist perspective, without all the paranoia and bigotry.

  2. On that Dawkins article:
    Me reading the first example from “JihadistJoe”: “Okay, that’s not so bad. Others have made a similar point, this is just Dawkins-bashing for the heck of…”
    Me reading the following examples: “OH. MY. GAWD!!!”
