I would agree with Kaiten, he's a punk.
Dawkins is a condescending prick who has no interest in engaging with religious people but simply reinforcing a circlejerk rather than any thoughtful discourse. His rhetoric is silly and purposefully inflaming. Neil Degrasse Tyson says it better than me.
Well no, I can't argue with how in-your-face he is with people. He isn't terribly charismatic or tactful in that way. I thought he meant something else.

I know, I've read some of his works and seen some of his specials. I don't care much for his confrontational style, but I still find what he does interesting.
But yea, god doesn't exist because there are fossils. /s
I do love that clip. Neil Degreasse Tyson has a way with words. I think that quote basically sums up the internet

This kinda shit frankly disgusts me. One could argue that nearly all religions haven't contributed anything either.
It's quite ignorant and false but that's the internet. It's not really a haven of critical thinking.

I'm trying to say that you can't say Islam hasn't contributed and act like other religions have. I think all of them contributed in their own way. I'm not sure on this, but wasn't Islam the root of Christianity? It's close minded people like these that cause problems, not religions themselves.
Christianity was many centuries before Islam.
Interesting... few people have said otherwise. But Islam has contributed as much to the world as Christianity or Hinduism has.
