    ePUB Richard Dawkins ´ The Selfish Gene PDF/EPUB · The Selfish MOBI :º ´ selfish book, gene epub, The Selfish download, The Selfish Gene eBookDidactic patronizing condescending and arguably neo intellectual twaddle I do not believe in a God certainly not any God that's been conceived by man but I also believe Richard Dawkins is a self satisfied thought Nazi who is as fundamental in his view of religion as any right wing minister Fundamentalists of all faiths scare me and atheism is just as much a faith as any religion The existence or non existence of a God cannot be proven nor can the existence or non existence of a soul and faith is an abstract experience with implications that are fundamentally unresponsive to study As such pursuits like Dawkins' often boil down to one type of faith in reason vs another type of faith in a God Many people love Dawkins He is certainly intelligent and writes as such but he lacks wisdom and imagination To me that's the flaw in all of his work from The Selfish Gene to The God Delusion The idea that one human being can know enough about the nature of the universe to make the s

    ePUB Richard Dawkins ´ The Selfish Gene PDF/EPUB · The Selfish MOBI :º ´ selfish book, gene epub, The Selfish download, The Selfish Gene eBookAlthough I consider myself a Jesus loving god fearing creationist I simply LOVE reading about evolution I'm not sure what it is but I find the whole concept when explained by a lucid and accessible author fascinating And Dawkins is nothing if not lucid and accessible He presents the topic and various uestions and scientific controversies in a way that anybody with a willingness to pay attention can follow it Some of the chapters were a bit of a slog as Dawkins has to resort to scary scary math and numbers to prove some of his points and set up for even mindblowing stuff in future chapters But most of the time this book is chock full of

Do they believe that the earth is flat? Are they the sort of people who pay astrologers money to cast their charts because of course your fate is determined by the stars at the moment of your birth? Jesus wept Or he would have I'm reading Josephus at the moment it seems that the only mention of Jesus at the time he was living was in Josephus but that it might have been added later

High fiveAnd you might be like Okay so who cares? What difference does that make right? Well first of all I'm gonna go have some pie because fuck you genes you're not the boss of me Woohoo Other than that no no difference carry on It makes a difference to scientists because when you look at it this way all kinds of behaviors make se

    ePUB Richard Dawkins ´ The Selfish Gene PDF/EPUB · The Selfish MOBI :º ´ selfish book, gene epub, The Selfish download, The Selfish Gene eBookOn 27 December 1831 a young naturalist by the name of Charles Robert Darwin set upon a voyage of discovery on the HMS Beagle which was to last five years and take him all over the globe He came back with a lot of specimens copious scientific notes and an explosive theory which was to rock the world of ideas the theory of evolution by natural selection Suddenly God became an unnecessary and unlikely hypothesis man was pulled down from his high throne as the master of creation and existence became a cacophony of chance events rather than a carefully co ordinated orchestra Naturally the religious establishment rebelled But like all ideas whose time had come evolution hung on with great tenacity to become the widely accepted idea it is todayI have been fascinated with the idea ever since I was introduced to it in high school As far as I am concerned the very argument that theists put forward against evolution is its greatest strength; viz the co
