Is This Richard Dawkins' Most Idiotic Quotation? Or Is It Just His Most Stunningly Ignorant Quote About Religion?

"Many of us saw religion as harmless nonsense. Beliefs might lack all supporting evidence but, we thought, if people needed a crutch for consolation, where's the harm? September 11th changed all that."

Just asking. . .

Come to think of it. . . World famous "fundamentalist atheist" if not Atheist Supremacist Richard Dawkins' apparent belief that religion is just "harmless nonsense" lacks supporting evidence.

Freedom From Religion Foundation Atheist Bus Campaign Ads As Ad*Busted By The Wonderful Wizard Of U*Us

Most of the Richard Dawkins quotes are unmodified exact quotes. A few quotations have been slightly tweaked for the purposes of parody and satire, not that the completely unmodified Richard Dawkins quotes aren't hilarious. . . :-)

All of the Richard Dawkins quotations in the Ad*Busted Freedom From Religion Foundation FreeThought Bus Campaign ads, as well as the first Mark Twain quotation (which was of course deliberately taken out of context to make a point or two), are courtesy of the official website. ;-)
