Somacandra: exick: a subscription to a YouTube channel featuring Richard Dawkins' debates.

Oh please. Dawkins is a very good biologist. But he has absolutely no training or education in religious studies theory or methods. His "arguments" are warmed over 19th century anthropological criticisms and he has no clue on how to address religion as an actual lived phenomenon worldwide. He reads a few translated lines of an ancient sutra out of context and suddenly thinks he's an expert on Jainism. As a geneticist he's very good but like Christopher Hitchens or Bill Maher he wouldn't get more than a "C" in a competently taught freshman religious studies course at a university.


I know, right?  He has no idea what thread count the Emperor's new clothes are!

Exactly - just like people with PhDs in Falloutology are the only ones qualified to comment on whether or not the Vault Dweller exists.

nerftaig: On a lighter note does anyone else love when Christians use "that argument is so old 100 years come on get with the times man" as a criticism?


A couple months ago, a 9/11 Truther chided me for using "decade-old" arguments in rebutting his claims. Some people just don't consider the possibility that the reason they're hearing the same rebuttals over and over again is that their own position hasn't gotten any cleverer, as opposed to there being some inadequacy on the part of the people they're arguing with.
