Lilly-livered atheists attack Dawkins' book, The God Delusion, for having the gall to be the on the best-seller list for 22 weeks.
“We have more than one form of understanding,” [Thomas Nagel] continued. “The great achievements of physical science do not make it capable of encompassing everything, from mathematics to ethics to the experiences of a living animal. We have no reason to dismiss moral reasoning, introspection or conceptual analysis as ways of discovering the truth just because they are not physics.”
Well, that's brilliant, Mr. Nagel. The problem is, Dawkins is not a physicist.
Do I sense some jealousy here? Maybe because these people sat comfortably in their ivory closets, let other, less rich atheists get thrown to the wolves, and let America go off the deep end about Jesus, only to see Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Sam Harris garner success by having the balls that these mincing faint hearts like Nagel don't have? (Ironically, James Cameron's so-called documentary would be the first independent evidence that Jesus existed, but it's all a rehash of crap from the 1980s.)
But what the nay-sayers really want to point out is, Dawkins "caricatures" religion. The American people are not bigoted, superstitious, homophobic fundamentalists. Oh my, no. Ann Coulter is not a household world in this country, whereas Dawkins is. Right.
Nice going, Ann, you cunt. ("Did I say cunt? Oh, can't she take a joke? After all, I wouldn't insult cunts by identifying them with Ann. That would be mean.")
Shimmies to Ken Avidor (Dump Michele Bachmann), Rude Pundit and Rev. BigDumbChimp.
