Way, way back in 1996 the American Humanist Association (AHA: an Atheist anti-Christian support group, by any other name, a watchGod group) proclaimed Richard Dawkins as “Humanist of the Year” for his Atheist missionary endeavors.
The AHA’s Board is now withdrawing that award due to that, “Richard Dawkins has over the past several years accumulated a history of making statements that use the guise of scientific discourse to demean marginalized groups, an approach antithetical to humanist values.”
Welcome to the club now that you’ve had a rare moment of clarity.
Some of us have been saying for years (years) that Dawkins makes it a habit of making statements that use the guise of scientific discourse (aka scientism) to demean marginalized groups, such as Christians, creation scientists, etc.
As for that such is “an approach antithetical to humanist values” is riotous coming from an organization, the administrators and members of which has the gull to actually call themselves Human-ists even whilst, for example, supporting the brutally violent serial murder of MILLIONS of beautiful, healthy, innocent, and defenseless human babies—for money.
For example, they note, “Abortion Access Is a Religious Freedom Issue, Say Humanists.”
They take issue with that which they claim is Dawkins’ “His latest statement” for which they provide no quotation nor citation nor contextualization whatsoever, “implies that the identities of transgender individuals are fraudulent, while also simultaneously attacking Black identity as one that can be assumed when convenient.”
Actually, recent history has shown that it is “the identities of transgender individuals” that “are fraudulent” and “can be assumed when convenient” such as when a male/man self-identified as a woman, entered a weightlifting competition, and won EVERYTHING.
Sorry girls and women who have put a tremendous amount of time, money, effort, energy, etc., to reach the top of your sports: some guy can now just decide he is a she—or a he and/or she and/or it—and obliterate your whole career.
You may recall that I posted Richard Dawkins’ rare moment of clarity on Debora Soh’s “The End of Gender” which is what this is all about, Dawkins calling for academic freedom in questioning if, as I will put it, self-identification really does change verifiable 3-D reality.
Well, it was along these lines that Dawkins was speaking in those mystery statements and hopefully he will learn something from Ben Stein.
Dawkins has noted, “I do not intend to disparage trans people. I see that my academic ‘Discuss’ question has been misconstrued as such and I deplore this…”
I say “learn something from Ben Stein” because Stein got involved in the documentary—wherein he gracefully obliterated Dawkins—Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed not because he supported Intelligent Design but because he was concerned about the loos of academic freedom.
Now, Dawkins is learning the same lesson.
It will be fascinating to see what, if anything, comes of all of this.
