Richard Dawkins

If Richard Dawkins argues for evolution with a passion and, that “natural selection is a cumulative process with graded ramps of slowly increasing complexity,” then he advocates a creative process that necessitates mind-brain-intelligence, in order to be able to choose and select.

(KELOWNA, BC) - Is Biology Professor Richard Dawkins actually a Believer, and doesn’t know it?

In a video, at the pearly gate, Dawkins asked the man in the sky; what kind of God are you? Thor-Zeus-Apollo-Yahweh or?

Why did you conceal yourself?

This is not a very profound enquiry from a serious scientist.

In fact, I’m amazed that Richard Dawkins is regarded as a giant in the scientific community and can say that, “physical evidence of God is the necessary catalyst, if he existed and chose to reveal it, God himself could clinch the argument noisily and unequivocally in his favour.”

This seems just as foolish as some religious believes Dawkins is trying to discredit, however justified. Can he ever overcome the anger of childhood and early teen religious indoctrination, which he displays at every discussion as a Darwinian-evolution-atheist?

If Richard Dawkins argues for evolution with a passion and, that “natural selection is a cumulative process with graded ramps of slowly increasing complexity,” then he advocates a creative process that necessitates mind-brain-intelligence, in order to be able to choose and select. This requires software from a Source.

The overwhelming evidence of intelligence in nature suggests the existence of an Architect-Creator-God. And, if HE-SHE-IT started the universe with the Big Bang then it is plausible that innate software was part of it that is then activated when planetary conditions are right for life to unfold. But, I think, God will remain just as intangible and invisible as is the I and You.

@ Son I need to correct you. When you invoke Davies and his mathematics as some sort of evidence for intelligence you clearly wrong. You end by saying "learn some science" well sorry to break it to you, math is not science. Math can be proven with the use of prooofs, on the other hand, science cannot be proven, and it is ever changing as new evidence emerges.

Lets play 'name that logical fallacy'. I've not read an article as poorly written and as erroneous in a long time. Such a great lack of scientific understanding. I'm sorry Gunther you fool, but you fail.

You use the name Snoopy and call others a fool? That is ridiculous.

"Where is this evidence of intelligence"? Well, astrophysicist Paul Davies outlined this in his book "The Mind of God," using number theory, matrices, and statistics. The evidence is right there, and has been peer reviewed. But I'm sure you won't bother to look at it, because you are as anti-scientific as the people you criticize. Please sincerely learn some science.

Completely agree with the commment below. This guy Gunther has no clue about natural selection. That last paragrah is classic "The overwhelming evidence of intelligence in nature suggests the existence of an Architect-Creator-God." wow where does he get this stuff from. Stay deluded Gunther and let's all hope that you never have to be on a Jury that needs actual evidence beyond a reasonable doubt!

Natural selection does not require an intelligence. A gazellle that can outrun a cheetah will survive to breed, a slower gazelle will get eaten and will not breed. No need for an intelligence to decide which is faster, Nature will decide. Is that really so hard to understand?
