http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Dawkins  Creationism  Dawkins is a 
prominent critic of creationism, describing it as a "preposterous, 
mind-shrinking falsehood".[30] His book The Blind Watchmaker contains a 
critique of the argument from design, and his other popular science works often 
touch on the topic. In 1986, Dawkins participated in the Oxford Union's Huxley 
Memorial Debate, in which he and John Maynard Smith debated A. E. Wilder-Smith 
and Edgar Andrews, president of the Biblical Creation Society.[31] But on the 
advice of his late colleague Stephen Jay Gould, Dawkins generally refuses to 
participate in formal debates with creationists because doing so would give 
them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want. He argues that creationists 
"don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters is that we give them 
recognition by bothering to argue with them in public."[32]
  In a December 2004 interview with Bill Moyers, Dawkins stated that "among the 
things that science does know, evolution is about as certain as anything we 
know." When Moyers later asked, "Is evolution a theory, not a fact?", Dawkins 
replied, "Evolution has been observed. It's just that it hasn't been observed 
while it's happening." Dawkins went on to say, "It is rather like a detective 
coming on a murder after the scene. And you? the detective hasn't actually seen 
the murder take place, of course. But what you do see is a massive clue 
...Circumstantial evidence, but masses of circumstantial evidence. Huge 
quantities of circumstantial evidence."[33]

  I stated on Neville's assurance that he would be afforded every courtesy and 
I pointed him to the forum so that he may read what we all write. It is well 
known that he is not noted for his tact -- perhaps he sees good reason for this 
  A Christian should not throw the first stone.

  Dear Jack,

I had to smile when I read this. And if you read it again, you will understand

      I look forward to his response but don't hold your breath. He know s he 
will get creamed! He has no time for people who say 'God did it' but has plenty 
of time for those who say 'first there was nothing then it exploded and then 
against all the odds out came life miraculously'. If you read any of his 
comments about people of faith especially Christians you will see that take-up 
of your offer is unlikely - unless there is some money in it. Dawkins is not a 
rational, scientifically unbiased, objective man, he is obsessively 
anti-anybody who is not an evolutionist. 
  With regard to us being courteous, it will be Dawkins who will be first to 
start name-calling. He can be extremely rude to his detractors.
