HomeScienceRichard Dawkins’ fatal error Log in

As most of you know, Richard Dawkins is a evolutionary biologist and famous for his outspoken promotion of atheism.

On February 8, 2016 I created this meme.

Richard Dawkins mocks God.

I immediately sent it to my good friend, Dr. John G. Hartnett who is a physicist, cosmologist (B.Sc. (Hons) and Ph.D.) and a Christian with a biblical creationist worldview. I also posted the meme on my Facebook page. Dr. Hartnett immediately shared it on his Facebook timeline. Because he is rather famous and has probably more friends than me, I expected many likes on the meme. However three days later at the time of this post, there is still only a single like on his share and only 8 on mine. I wrote Dr. Hartnett about it and he said he probably should spell it out. Below is his reply:

“For those who don’t understand this issue. Because of evolutionary thinking most of the human genome (i.e. DNA) 20 years ago was declared ‘junk’ because at that time scientists believed that it had evolved from pond scum over 3.8 billion years and hence there would be many mistakes and unused leftovers. Unused means it no longer codes for proteins that the cells use to make everything they need for the organism to function properly. But after some decades of study it has been found that not 95% is junk but 0% is junk as it all has a function. There are very important introns in the so-called junk segments that tell the RNA when copying a piece of code from a DNA strand where to start and where to stop. That is one example. But also it has been found that DNA is about 6 dimensional, much more complex than a single linear strand of code. It is the product of a mind-bogglingly Intelligent Creator not chance and evolution. “

I think it’s the height of hubris for man with finite intelligence to put himself above the Creator Who processes infinite intelligence.

In other words, Dawkins is both arrogant and stupid! It often baffles me how a person with a great mind can be so dumb. It has to with their spiritual understanding being darkened.

Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Ephesians 4:18
