Richard Dawkins in bitter web censorship row with fellow atheists
The prominent atheist faced a torrent of abuse from outraged fans after he announced that all further postings to the discussion forum on his website would be tightly moderated to ward off what he called â€śsomething rottenâ€ť in internet culture.
Christian groups have seized on the row as evidence that the Dawkins community is not as free-thinking as it makes out.
"Another former fan said: 'It may sound ridiculous to those not involved with online communities, but I feel hurt and displaced. It was like coming home to find the locks have been changed. My respect for Richardâ€™s work is still intact but my respect for him as a person is in tatters.'"
Another look at the wrong-headed notion that what a person does is not connected to who he is.
Why does an atheist like Dawkins have any appeal to the general public and can get them to listen to his "opinion" is beyond my comprehension
Atheists, Homosexuals, Feminists, Drug users were not role models during the 40's and 50's, but sixty years later with God and prayer banned in schools and evolution taught as "fact" and not "theory", the devil is really working overtime to devour those who are practicing those beliefs.
All we can do is live our lives "One Day at a Time" always giving thanks in all circumstances and sharing the gospel with those who are lost. The bible doesn't say we are to "save" the world, only do our part by telling others and then let God do His part.
Who have you shared the good news of Jesus Christ with today Remember, today is the day of Salvation for those who are dying and going to Hell.
this sermon audio should always champion the truth rather than being selctive in its approach namely any genuine truthful critism is censored because of personality .It can therefore be called a forum but rather a cheer shop for individuals who have patently erred . Would nathan have been censored had he been alive today,prehaps on sermon audio The truth will always inspite of men.
Like Benny Hinn not going to hospitals to heal people and staying in carefully controlled situations, Dawkins can't compete in the open marketplace of ideas and requires a carefully controlled situation where no one can answer him. I think Dawkins is the atheist answer to Benny Hinn - about 99% self-promotion and 1% content. Dawkins knows about as much about philosophy as Hinn does about theology.
