This thread is has got real heavy under the shear weight of pedants and trolls. I'm not arguing because I like arguments. I'm trying to understand what people believe and in turn explore my own thoughts.
If ALL you want to just argue for its own sake go and take that shit elsewhere.
Pointing out an incorrectness is not pedantry, but simple rational hygiene. My opinion.
I was unable to find the positive statement which you accused Dawkins of making in the article you linked. Is saying so pedantry? If you continue to believe so, we disagree. cn

If I error, correct me by all means. Accusing me of intentionally misrepresenting a position is'nt helping move the debate on..
Anyways, Ive nothing to add atm. Time to water hempy's.
It relies on the premise that Dawkins claims absolute certainty no God exists, when he doesn't.
I don't think that's nitpicking, but it doesn't really matter. The point is, most rational people, skeptics, don't claim any kind of 'absolute certainty' because they know it's an irrational stance to take.
I've got soul, and I'm super bad! Watch me Now! I got it!
I apologize for my incessant rambling, but if you are patient there is inner hidden wisdom in most of my posts...Like playing literary "Where's Waldo."--------------- See, it's fun!
