Richard Dawkins an embarrassment to atheists

Dawkins is not an atheist, he is a rabid anti-theist, which is something altogether different.

In fact, Dawkins is an embarrassment to atheism.

Articles like this are easy to find: http://richarddawkins.net/discussions/504646-richard-dawkins-is-an-embarrassment-to-atheism

This article, by Mark Wallace — found on richarddawkins.net — begins:

“I’m an atheist, but I increasingly find that Richard is becoming a costly liability to atheists. His enthusiasm for deliberately offending others rather than simply communicating the logic of his position is fast becoming an embarrassment.”

It ends:

“Is there a worse posterboy for any movement in Britain than Richard Dawkins?”

Here’s another: Dawkins et al bring us into disrepute

In the above article, Michael Ruse writes: “I have written that The God Delusion made me ashamed to be an atheist and I meant it.”

Does Ruse’s anti-Dawkinsian stance make him any less of an atheist? No. Ruse is quite willing to respect those whose opinons differ from his own, without resorting to childish name-calling. To be brief, disagreeing with Ruse doesn’t automatically make you a dummy.

In fact, he says, “There are a lot of very bright and well informed Christian theologians.”

What? “[B]right and well informed Christian theologians”?

Perhaps Ruse is an embarrassment to Dawkinsians. But then, as I said, atheism and anti-theism are two differents monkeys.
