Here’s what happens when you repeatedly accept interviews with Bill O’Reilly:
But, Mr Dawkins… If you have such disdain for Bill O’Reilly, then why do you appear on his show so much?
Today’s Biltrix is about teaching children to distinguish between myths and science and… religious discrimination.
What’s a myth? According to Richard Dawkins, the Judeo-Christian system of beliefs is a Myth. In the interview with O’Reilly, he calls it “the Judeo-Christian Myth.” Apparently, that’s what he calls it in his new kiddies’ book as well.
And he wonders, why should anyone be outraged about that?
Well, I for one am not outraged. It’s what I’ve come to expect from Richard Dawkins. Face it. His views are different from yours and mine. We should not judge him based on his opinions. He just sees things differently, but…
Whatever your views are on the matter, DON’T do this. If you’ve already ordered a copy of The Magic of Reality for your little nephew or niece, DON’T cancel the order. You could get sued for religious discrimination.
OK, I’ll just come out and say it.
Bill’s right. Richard Dawkins wants to indoctrinate children with his religious views: Atheism.
Well maybe that’s taking it a little too far. But the argument could be made for what I just said because of…
The missing point: Wait a minute! You are threatening to sue a country club on the basis of religious discrimination???
What? I thought you said your aim was to kill religion (see Tuesday’s post). That’s not illogical. That’s hypocrisy.
Oh! I see. Your atheism is a religion (it seems your views have suddenly changed, I never thought it possible) and our religion is a myth.
No, I cant’t recommend your new book for kids. All this would be just too confusing for our youngsters to handle, I’m afraid. It contradicts everything we’ve tried to teach them. Besides, there are some truths your science book just can’t teach them as well as their parents can.
It’s such a shame. I loved science as a kid. I still do. What I would have done to have a book like the one he’s selling in the video below… It makes a great promotional ad for the iPad.
Watch the clip. You’ll see what I mean. Decide for yourself if you think every kid ought to have one.
Did you catch the scene with Eve looking up at the Tree of Knowledge? If you did, watch it again and notice how it appears in the myth part. You can’t say it has nothing to do with religion.
