Professor Dawkins,

What sort of role has intolerance, especially religious, played in human evolution through artificial selection? Much akin to that of all domesticated dogs. We as humans chose certain wolves with certain characteristics, ironically enough, in this case those characteristics were less...

Dear Mr Dawkins
Thank you for being so honest with yourself and with all World.
That makes me brave enough to be myself, even in a counrty, where everyone hates me for what I am and how I think.I read your books and that makes me feel so good, despite all painful loneliness. I mean, I can't...

Dear Professor Dawkins

I, like many people, grew up believing in god. This was not because I had been presented with any sufficient evidence, but because it was what everybody else believed. Up until my grandfather passed away several years ago, I was under the impression that this god I so blindly held faith in was a...

Hello

First off thanks to all the responses I got to my post "Difficulties Believers Have with Science", lots of really interesting points made and I'm still going through it when I can find the time.

Just wanted to comment on RD's "Makes sense" post which I saw today and began reading....

Dear All

I have become involved over the past few years in experimentation with and use of a drug called baclofen which is becoming widely used for the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions to drugs such as heroin and cocaine. It has also been found to be a very good treatment for autism and is...

To Richard Dawkins

It would appear the only reasonably justifiable answer to the healthy role of religion in society is always, and has always been, to provide a framework for the innate functions of conscience in healthy human beings to have a socially well organised footing, to do good within a society. That is...

Dear Mr Dawkins

I´m a swedish woman in my 40´s- and I have red most of your books, and also Douglas Adams (Guide to the galaxy- superb!) I´m not going to argue about God- because there is non. Another experience I hope you can disprove....
I have got a diagnosis AS/Autism, and therefore spent most of my life in...

It had to happen, this blog post. I did try putting it off but in the back of my mind, I knew it was coming. Repressing it any longer is not going to be very helpful, so here we go....I absolutely adore Richard Dawkins.

Like any self respecting 'believer', I used to hate him. That hate was...

Fellow seeker?

The Foundation uses the term "evidence based" in its mission statement.
I am wondering what is meant by the word "evidence." And in light of whatever definition that you would offer, what is the Foundation's/your position on String Theory and Multiverse Theory?

Both relativity and quantum...

Hi

I have a question, since we hardly ever get sick from dogs, is that an evolutionary trait? Or an aquired trait? Have we evolved with dogs so that we have an aquired immunity.

Please give my thanks also for Lalla and your...

I admire your work greatly. I have read nearly all of your books. You're my hero. You're the greatest person and the greatest scientist alive, today, in this very bleak world.

Natural selection, that's the Thing. And you, dear Mr. Dawkins, understand, the naturalistic fallacy, what is, that is...

Dear Professor Dawkins

Could you explain why I think exaclty like you ? And why some other doesn't think like me.
Is minds polymorphic arround the word, or is there several kind of mind ? This will probably solve by Cognitive science in the futur.
