To say nothing of *IF* the remarkably pompous Atheist Supremacist Spokesperson (aka pompous ASS) Richard Dawkins had access to the direct personal *knowledge* of God that psychotherapist Carl Gustav Jung, the alleged "dangerously deranged psycho-sociopath" your's truly, and numerous other modern people had, and still have. . .
Without further ado, or indeed "to do", here is the comment that I just posted to the RAW Story blog post titled - Richard Dawkins: ‘Jesus would have been an atheist’ - in which Richard Dawkin's is quoted as saying:
"Somebody as intelligent as Jesus would have been an atheist if he had known what we know today."
My comment -
The devout fundamentalist atheist, if not Atheist Supremacist... Richard Dawkins would be a Theist today if he had access to the direct personal *knowledge* of God that Jesus and other prophets had thousands of years ago, and many other human beings have today in the 21st century. Richard Dawkins' facile dismissal of religious experience in 'The God Delusion' etc. is "less than scientific" and looks a lot like sheer willful ignorance.
There is lots of positive evidence for the existence of God if one responsibly investigates religious experience but most scientists refuse to do so. In fact the self-described Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) point blank refused to scientifically investigate my own claimed revelatory experience of God when I challenged them to do so. Indeed they lamely and quite ludicrously claimed that they do not actually engage in the scientific investigation of religious experiences. Doh! That *might* explain why they have apparently changed their name to the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI pronounced *sigh*). . . I can't help but wonder if I am responsible for that name change. Maybe I should send them another email inviting them to engage in some "skeptical inquiry" into my profound revelatory religious experience and the messages that resulted from it.
For a scientist Richard Dawkins sure likes to wallow in apparently quite willful ignorance when it comes to contemporary religious experience and other positive evidence for the existence of God, such as evidence that strongly suggests Intelligent Design in the Universe.
