In his book “the god delusion” Richard Dawkins quotes another woman to support his assertion that physical abuse is less damaging than emotional abuse. At that time he was distancing himself from his own stance he also knows that society has a feminine bias and they can get away with saying things that a man can’t. Being a manipulative, charismatic figure, Dawkins uses his powers of influence to manipulate a group of cheerleaders for science known as Dawkinites. Seeing science as the antithesis of religion and believing themselves incapable of being religious, they unwittingly are falling victim to Richard Dawkins turning science into a religion, with himself as a kind of martyr/mufti, issuing fatwas against religious proponents and using his Dawkinite henchmen as a type of internet bullying network. His cult followers seem incapable of detecting his manipulations, obfuscations, and conflations, fallacies and biases, as well as evaluating the depths of their own morbid stupidity.
In an interview in The Times magazine on Saturday (Sept. 7), Dawkins, 72, he said he was unable to condemn what he called “the mild pedophilia” he experienced at an English school when he was a child in the 1950s.
Referring to his early days at a boarding school in Salisbury, he recalled how one of the (unnamed) masters “pulled me on his knee and put his hand inside my shorts.”
He said other children in his school peer group had been molested by the same teacher but concluded: “I don’t think he did any of us lasting harm.”
“I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we don’t look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism, I look back a few decades to my childhood and see things like caning, like mild pedophilia, and can’t find it in me to condemn it by the same standards as I or anyone would today,” he said.
