Good news for those of you who were worried that Richard Dawkins had flushed all his credibility as a rational person down the toilet by telling the mothers of people with Downs Syndrome that they’re immoral for not having an abortion, setting a mob on a 14-year old Muslim boy, and ranking rapes by how bad he thinks they are: Center for Inquiry has merged with his foundation and added him to its Board of Directors!
This is very exciting news for me, because it means I no longer need to wonder whether I’ll ever be invited back to a CFI event again. No! The answer is no.
Speaking of Richard Dawkins refusing to allow me to be invited to events where he is speaking, for the many years I performed at the Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism (NECSS), which began as a live show on my former podcast, The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe, the organizers could never quite convince Dawkins to attend. Well, I quit SGU and now NECSS has announced that the first conference they’ve planned since my exit will feature Richard Dawkins as the keynote.
In conclusion, the skeptic/atheist sphere is an embarrassing shitshow and the organizations will continue polishing Richard Dawkins’ knob until he dies, at which point he will be sainted and his image will be put on candles and prayed to in times when logic is needed.
