From CHRISTIAN TODAY:
Richard Dawkins has dismissed plans to build a £1m atheist monument in London. The plans have been put forward by atheist Alain de Botton, who said: “You can build a temple to anything that’s positive and good. Because of Richard Dawkins, atheism has become known as a destructive force, but there are lots of people who don’t believe but aren’t aggressive towards religions.” he said.
Dawkins dismissed the project as a waste of money.
“Atheists don’t need temples. There are better things to spend this kind of money on. You could improve secular education and build non-religious schools which teach rational, sceptical, critical thinking,” he said.
COMMENT: It really is a shame for Comrade Dorkins that the iron curtain has gone and Russia has embraced capitalism and crime with more gusto than the American Mafia. He would have fitted in so well in a Stalinist state. They would have probably put him in charge of education. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that he would have preferred to have been head of the KGB.
