“The pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts... nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.”
H. W. Westermayer

This kind of stuff just drives Dawkins to distraction. Because he doesn’t know the goodness of God, the peace of God, the mercy and grace and forgiveness of God, Dawkins simply cannot comprehend how anyone wouldn’t rage and tantrum at Creator God like little atheists do when they don’t get their way; like the atheist Richard Dawkins does when he doesn’t get his way.

Wow, good thing you have some sort of magic ability to see inside his head.

I don't think Dawkins believes in any gods, let alone your god... but hey I don't have that magic ability to read people's minds that you have.

like little atheists do when they don’t get their way; like the atheist Richard Dawkins does when he doesn’t get his way.

Because I lack your magical mind reading ability I don't know whether you wrote this out of hate, fear or impotent rage.

I don't have the address but there's a YouTube thing where Richard Dawkins speaks with Alistair McGrath about his frustration regarding the "actual increase in faith" of Christians who undergo suffering and tragedy.

His comment was specifically, “I find it bewildering to note that natural disasters actually increase the faith of believers.”

So, no mind reading.

The King of Generalizations strikes again. What's new?

When i don't get my way, and that is often, I do not rage at God. That would imply that I believe that there is someone or something to rage at. When I don't get my way, I suck it up and move on. That is what normal people do.

Atheists would have us belive that they only rage at God on the internet. Don't you believe it.

That is not what I said.

If I ever need anything taken incredibly out of context, over simplified, and crassly generalized, I will come to you.

Some of us are actually using all of this stuff on the Internet for a reason. I am here, until spring next year researching, because I have been asked to coauthor a book. Otherwise, I would not bother with this.

Of course. You have no choice but to hammer away at the God you don't believe in. Of course.

I do not hammer away at God. That would imply a belief in God. I hammer away at you, get it straight. And, you make it all too easy. I do have a choice. I have chosen this avenue of research to understand the current issues, the arguments that are relevant to all of us, and what to expect during a debate. Some of us do believe in being credible when we write our words.

I really do not believe that Professor Richard Dawkins would be intimidated by your arguments. I think the fact that you consider yourself as being able to identify what arguments drive him to distraction as being potentially delusional, and a little alarming.

I already explained to you that in an interview done with Alistair McGrath, Dawkins himself explains what drives him to distraction.

“I find it bewildering to note that natural disasters actually increase the faith of believers.”

Amazing how a source appears out of thin air. How does this quote suggest that this drives him to distraction scarecrow?
