Richard Dawkins Is Pope Atheist? Obama's An Atheist,Richard Dawkins
joined Bill Maher Friday night to talk about his personal evolution from
theism to atheism, why a scientific view of the universe does not
entail a series of random events, and which public figures he believes
are secretly atheists.
Maher and Dawkins agreed that people like
them are often called "militant" atheists, when, in fact, the real
problem people have with them is their "clarity" and how steadfast they
are on these issues. Dawkins acknowledged he used to be religious,
adding, "When I became a man I put away childish things."
dispelled some truly erroneous myths about science and atheism, said
that something as simple as a sneeze can change the fabric of human
history, and shared this colorful metaphor for the creationists. "If
you believe that the world is only 6000 years old, as some of these
people do, given that the true age of the earth is 4.6 billion years,
it's equivalent to believing the width of North America is eight yards."
asked Dawkins if he subscribes to Maher's theory that Pope Francis is
an atheist. Dawkins said, "I'm sure Obama is an atheist, I'm sure
Kennedy was an atheist, but I doubt if Pope Frank is." He said the fact
this new Pope is "nice" is "dangerous," because he still subscribes to
the same religious system as previous Popes, just with a softer tone.
Sharpton shot back, "I think he makes it harder for atheists to dismiss
religious people as being people that are so in the past and limited
and don't think."
Maher concluded, "Gay marriage, pot, religion's the next one to fall."
