BOOK BY DAWKINS: The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution

My comment about someone's review of The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution by Richard Dawkins

"In his educational role, Dawkins must confront the insidious spread of Christian-inspired simplistic hype over evolution. He must take up space refuting its propaganda and invalid assumptions."

Neil Shubin's "Your Inner Fish, A Journey Into The 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body" had nothing in it about creationism stupidity. Perhaps that's a good thing. Just ignore the god-soaked idiots as if they didn't exist.

Dawkins, being who he is, of course could not resist criticizing the uneducated morons who prefer supernatural magic instead of science.

It's not just Christians who want to throw out all of biology, the Muslims have the same problem but for them the problem is worse. While there are some Christians who accept human evolution (they always stick their Magic Jeebus Man in there somewhere), virtually all Muslims are human evolution deniers. Some Muslims accept evolution for other creatures but they throw out the science that conflicts with their "Allah magically created humans" fantasy. All religions are brain damage. There is no cure.

Your review was excellent. Many thanks.
