This shouldn't be confused with religion though. Any religion will disregard counter-evidence, however large it may be. As soon as sufficient evidence counters Dawkins view, he will change his mind.
Athesim, as it once was, begun as a counterstirke to religious stupidity. This atheism is very good idea. I am a sworn Christian,however I'm not robbed of thinking nor logical reasoning. I asnwerd myself more question about my beliefs, during discussions with atheists, than I had in church. But, Mr. Dawkins goes much further. If he says, that the only purpose of man's life is to pass on the genes, I do disagree. It has nothing to do with my beliefs. If I would be reborn as the same person apart from my beliefs taken away, I would disagree the same. But for "Dawkinsts", I ' ll be on a border of religious extremism
One of the Polish philosophers, wrote in his review of the " God Dellusion". "If Mr. Dawkins, openly points at me, and my similar as a fools, I am free to say that I consider him blind".
