Richard Dawkins in anti-religion rant: “Swarming with ignorant religion and superstition” | United Kingdom | New
Dawkins, who is perhaps best known for his anti-religious beliefs, commented on the “wonder” of the World Wide Web. But he couldn’t help but attack religion in the meantime, rejecting beliefs that guide life as destructive to the advancement of human knowledge.
In a Twitter post, Dawkins wrote, “The World Wide Web is a wonder of our times, a blessing despite its vulnerability to abuse.
“Literally at hand is a massive encyclopedia of all human knowledge. “
That alone was not likely to shake many minds.
But he added: “It gives hope to parts of the world darkened by ignorant religion and superstition.”
As a result, Dawkins was accused of failing to notice the difference between the wisdom of one and the knowledge of the other.
Bow Group Chairman Ben Harris-Quinney told Express.co.uk: “The spread of the Internet alone has not brightened the world as Dawkins hoped, for wisdom and knowledge are two. different things, and outside of a framework of raw moral knowledge. often leads to horrible ailments.
He added that attacks on faith over the past decades, like this one, have not resulted in a “happier, more just, more satisfied society”, but “just the opposite”.
He said: “The Judeo-Christian civilization has given us the freest, most prosperous and enlightened civilization on earth, we are starting to see what Dawkin’s alternative looks like, and it’s only a decline and a disgrace.

Dawkins ended his Twitter post by thanking Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web in 1989, for his creation.
“HeyZeus” wrote in response, “God gave it to us. Thank him.
One of the world’s foremost modern atheists, Dawkins has devoted much of his career to criticizing religious beliefs.
He is perhaps best known for his 1976 book “The Selfish Gene” and more recently for his 2006 book “The God Delusion”.
In “The God Delusion,” he explained, “Faith can be very, very dangerous, and to deliberately implant it in the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a serious wrong. “
In his most recent book, “Flights of Fancy,” Dawkins returned to the subject that seems to be closest to his heart – evolutionary biology.
