Dawkins is wrong . . . .

Dan Hind makes the excellent point that Dawkins' obsession with debunking spiritualism ignores the fundamental threat to enlightenment thinking: The corporations manipulating science for their own ends.

  1. "Dawkins is wrong..." about what? his work is a critique of psuedoscience and religion, and the fact that he has not directed any of his attention towards corporate influence in science is irrelevant.

    perhaps you should concentrate on writing in an informed, logical manner. you have nothing to lose - by the looks of things, no one reads this shit anyway.

  2. I see you are unaware of the definitions of "rambling" and "diatribe". You are also dumb enough to think that everyone blogging on the net is writing for other people. I'm not. I'm writing for my own amusement.

    If you don't like it, you know where you can shove it.

    Anyway, on to the substance of your complaint: Dawkins is wrong because he thinks he is making a difference in this fucked up little world when, as Dan Hind observes, he is ignoring the elephant in the room. Gods know we need informed and lucid arguments against the forces that threaten enlightenment thinking but the misdirection of Dawkins' potent intellect detracts substantially from this. The efficient direction of limited resources is a crucial factor in any conflict and Dawkins' increasingly iconic media status could be so much better applied by uniting with Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and George Monbiot.
