Derren Brown Interview (1/6) - Richard Dawkins
Watch Richard Dawkins read hate mail from religious fanatics in hilarious video
In particular, his best seller The God Delusion , during which he argues that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that those who hold such beliefs in a personal god are fantasists. As such, he frequently receives hate mail. Warning: The below video contains Richard Dawkins swearing. A lot. And may be considered offensive.
Famous atheist and former Oxford professor Richard Dawkins has filmed himself reading out the hate male he gets from religious fanatics. Religious fanatics have been sending famed atheist Richard Dawkins abuse for years. So he's decided to read some of it out loud. The former Oxford professor has posted a couple of videos called " Love Letters to Richard Dawkins " in which he reads some the obscene comments people have sent him. Dawkins keeps his polite tone despite the foul things he's reading while those behind the camera can be heard laughing and sniggering in the background. Some of the choice insults that come his way include calling him the Antichrist, satanic and homosexual. You are a disgrace to humanity you stupid delusional atheist," one of the comments reads.
Outspoken atheist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins has devoted his life to educating the public about science and religion, two of the most divisive topics out there, so it probably won't come as a shock to hear that he gets significantly more hate mail than the average person. He accepts it with more aplomb than most people would — in fact, he's so chill about it that every few years a video will surface of Richard Dawkins reading his hate mail out loud , just for shits and giggles, in a series called "Love Letters to Richard Dawkins. Only it involves a lot less criticisms of his appearance and a lot more talk about monkeys. By far, the best part of the seven-minute video these particular haters are a verbose people is that Dawkins keeps a straight face the whole time. Except for a few twitches, he manages to read excerpts like, "You're a GAY-theist," and "Fuck you, you fuckity fucker," without cracking a smile.
The evolutionary biologist and outspoken critic of religion has not shied away from confrontation throughout his hugely accomplished career. Since writing his blockbuster book The Selfish Gene in , he has authored numerous other influential works including the so-called new atheist handbook, The God Delusion. Source:News Limited. And in this pursuit, he takes no prisoners. Particularly when it comes to religious doctrine which he sees as antithetical to the rationalist ideals he holds dear. How DARE you? Prof Dawkins has taken to producing much loved YouTube videos in which he reads out his favourite hate mail.
Atheists traditionally have kept quiet about their beliefs, leaving the public forum to religious leaders and others who embrace the existence of a supreme being. What's that about? How dare you. How dare you create a world in which there's such misery that's not our fault. It's not right. It's utterly, utterly evil. Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who creates a world that is so filled with injustice and pain?
