 Xanth just posted this on his personal Forum and I thought you guys here would enjoy this as well.

 This was very professionally handled! This man is a "true" Scientist. It's a shame there's not more like him!  sad

Richard Dawkins is just too skeptical... he's skeptical to a fault.  A bad position to be in.
I'm not saying skepticism isn't good, because you do NEED to be skeptical... but not to the point when you blatantly ignore facts, simply because they don't fit your view.

Well, we all know that a true scientist doesn't dismiss anything as a possibility no matter how "preposterous" something may seem just because it doesn't support the current paradigm from which they are currently working under. That just makes them a "believer"...something they claim to not be since believing is for the loonies.

If only they would look for common ground. All we really disagree about is the 1% stuff. No believer in God these days really believes that the Earth is just 6,000 years old. Why? Because science has more than proven this. No believer in God discounts the laws of physics that are currently known because science has taught us this. Like I said we only disagree on about the 1% stuff but unfortunately that is wide as the pacific ocean .

It annoys them that they can't prove that there isn't a God or a higher power at work and it irks them even more that we don't care to prove that there is one.

I have the greatest respect for Sheldrake.

He is the spearhead for the (scientific, yeah!) paradigm change.

I have not (yet) read his book on the "Science Delusion" (the title being an allusion to Dawkin's atheist book actually). I'm sure it is quite good.

Also he is the spearhead on several fronts when it comes to the fight with materialists/atheists/skeptics.

Just remember the "Ted talks" and recently the "Wikipedia scam", it was mostly about him and his work, but of course he only the representative and symbol for all of us open-minded people, and for the paradigm change to come.

Here's on Wiki:

Unfortunately, on this front, we are losing big time.

As a scientist, you'd *HAVE TO* listen and not brush off the Science Delusion.  You simply can't.
Brushing it off means you've been bought.  It means you're simply not interested in the truth and only interested in your pocketbook... honestly, I can't blame someone for that, but at the same time, our entire civilization is behind held hostage by Capitalism.

This crap needs to end.

I'd be surprised if some people here don't think Richard Dawkins could turn water into wine and then walk on it.

I don't think he can.
I don't even think he's anything even remotely called a scientist.
