To a Scientist

Richard Dawkins appeared on the Colbert Report tonight.

Aside from the fact that Colbert was grandstanding as usual (irritating me as always), and didn't let Professor Dawkins get a lot of words in edgewise (let him talk, he's your guest!), it was a pretty good exchange and Professor Dawkins looked very relaxed and charming and dashing, even more than usual. And he got in a few zingers.

Colbert: See, if I think that God just "did it," that I can understand.
Dawkins: And who just "did" God then?
Audience: Whoooo! [Laughter]

Here is my geeky intellectual take:

Don't forget that it's kiss-a-scientist week! MWAH! MWAH!! MWAH!!!

And a kiss for Lalla, too.

It wasn't long enough, Colbert. I guess you'll just have to invite him on again.

(Mwah! to Rev. BigDumbChimp)

Via RedStateRabble--Dawkins made somebody cry in Kansas and there's mean Kristine, with her hanky, to return the favor. (A lot of kissing and crying lately, what gives? Well read this and weep: atheism sells. Via Washington Post.)

If you missed it, Rev. BigDumbChimp has a You Tube link at his site.

Thank you both. We're so primitive at our house, we still have dial-up, so I set the VCR (another quaint contraption) and watched it after the news.

It was just a nibble of Dawkins. Colbert couldn't shut up.

Actually I think Dawkins has come out against the use of the FSM somewhere recently. I could be wrong. Trying to find a link to it.

I thought it was a pretty funny exchange with Colbert acting as he normally does, but Dawkins got a few good points across

Evolution is not random
We go one step further
Who made god?

It was good but I too would have liked about another 15 mins.

Well, yes, of course he did. Because one can have one's pasta and eat it, too.

I brought my sacred pesto pasta communion to work with me today.

Look, Dawkins is married to Lalla, one hot actress (third or fourth marriage for him, he spreading his genes).

So he needs money.

Professors with endowed chairs make good money, but not "old many keep the young hot thing happy" money.

So, write inflammatory book, go on book tour, sells lots of books, get high honorariams, and make a bundle.

Who care if you really helped advance or set back science education? YOU got YOU share.

The fit survive, the weak perish.

Evolution in action, and orgasms for Lalla.

Whoa! I think that someone has a crush on Lalla (not that I can blame him), but you’re inaccurate again, Banned.

Dawkins has only one daughter, so he’s hardly “spreading his genes.” By all accounts he dotes on her, and is on good terms at least with Marian Stamp Dawkins, his first wife.

And as for who is having orgasms, I think that’s none of your business. Know what? You sound bitter, honey. Go have some orgasms yourself instead of shooting your angry wad in cyberspace and getting banned from everyone but me. That’s obviously what you want but I’m too bored to ban you. Maybe after a little hedonism you’ll be a more pleasant person to hear from.

I have a feeling that you’re a bit too young to be a curmudgeon.

Sure, I think Lalla is hot.

But I think you are hot too!

But my point is that Dawkins has dollar signs in his eyes.

As far a banning is concerned, BAN ME BABY.

I will then have a perfect record.

In fact, the three of us have been banned several times by damn near every evolution site in the midwest.

Someone needs to learn that the only common factor in all of your failed relationships is you.

I am hot. But not for banning Banned. He [yawn] really doesn't qualify. Sorry, no perfect record for the broken record.

"The three of us." Ah, another holy trinitroll! Three IP addresses in one. How original.

Night night. I think I'll go to bed now. Just think, the whole western hemisphere having orgasms. Except for one little sad troll. Or three?

We only got Stewart in Sweden, but maybe, some beautiful and sunny day, we will get Colbert too.

Every week is kiss-a-scientist week, Michael. Everyone, one, two, three...

MWAH!

How about kiss a drunk IT manager week?

Banned, Banned, Banned. While I know if would fill your righteous heart with joy for everyone to be motivated by the almighty dollar (Bush and his cronies sure are), the fact is, Dawkins has things to say and there is nothing wrong with making a buck saying them while he says it. I doubt very seriously that the vast majority of those who teach evolution make much money at all. You'd think if that was their motivation they'd have jumped ship along time again.

But alas, the truth is those who teach evolution do so because it is the best explanation of how the biological world operates... and there's mountains of research evidence and science to back it up.

Wheres all that Creation evidence again? ID evidence?

I didn't think so.

Why, certainly. C'mere, you...

MWAH!

(Mommy thinks that she's finally sung the little troll to sleep. I guess it should call itself Not Banned when it grows up.)
