Camp Quest – Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here | True Freethinker

I have previously parsed the various claims being made about “Camp Quest”: on the one hand, their public relations statements which go unchallenged and uninvestigated by the media who gives them carte blanche and on the other hand, the actual facts of the matter: see here.Let us take a moment to consider that Camp Quest is a serious enterprise as it is all part of Dawkins’ tactic of having “society stepping in” to stop religious parents from doing so and his hopes that this “might lead children to choose no religion at all.”Samantha Stein, who promulgates Camp Quest UK, stated,

It is not about changing what they think, but the way that they think.

This is certainly accurate: they are changing “thinking” into imagining.This is the very definition of what Richard Dawkins meant, or so it seems to me, when he claimed that Charles Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist: as long as he can invent tall tales as to how things may happen, or could happen, or should happen, as long as he can imagine it-he is fulfilled.


For example, when he was asked to provide his “most persuasive” argument for Darwinian evolution he not only appealed to imagination but to faith:

_there’s got to be a series of advantages all the way in the feather.If you can’t think of one then that’s your problem, not natural selection’s problem.

Natural selection, um, well, I suppose that is a sort of matter of faith on my, on my part since the theory is so coherent and so powerful_

But is Camp Quest really changing “thinking” into imagining?

The UK’s Telegraph reports that one Camp Quest activity is that the little children will “sing John Lennon’s Imagine.”


Need we be reminded of this atheist anthem which calls for conversion?

Imagine there’s no HeavenIt’s easy if you try

No hell below usAbove us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for todayImagine there’s no countriesIt isn’t hard to doNothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the peopleLiving life in peaceYou may say that I’m a dreamerBut I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as oneImagine no possessions I wonder if you canNo need for greed or hungerA brotherhood of man

Imagine all the peopleSharing all the worldYou may say that I’m a dreamerBut I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

When there is no Heaven, no hell, no religion, etc. only then, only when those who believe such things join those who do not-only then will all the people live in peace and the world will be as one in sharing all the world.Got it kids?

Now, children remember; you are smarter than those people you think critically you are bright you are enlightened and those people are not.

I appreciate honesty and actually appreciate atheists who just come right out and admit that they indoctrinate their children from the cradle.


On this issue George Pitcher’s Prof Dawkins Upstages Bruno In Hilarious Summer Of Satire is a good article for a chuckle.
