    It's a casual forum, and politics isn't even the center of it, so why should we frame posts with the agonizing hesitancy and humility, of, say, an actual serious academic environment?

    I wasnt suggesting you should, I was just saying pretty much the same as Oberon that I saw "what you where doing there", that's why I said trolling, not in the sense of abuse or more malign troll behaviour but "fishing" for someone who'll react to a ploy

    Eh, I didn't really require anyone to react to that post. Better for no one to question My Word.

    If an opinion is controversial or even unpopular, but it's said anyways, it's not necessarily looking for a fight.

    Haters gotta hate. At least he's "open-minded" enough to hate on something other than religion.

The first friend is a Christian who interviewed him for the BBC and found it hard to have a proper conversation with him, the second friend is an atheist who was very excited to win a meeting with Richard Dawkins since he is one of his personal heros. During the meeting Dawkins ignored my friend and instead typed on his mobile phone and when my friend asked him to sign a copy of Darwin's "On the origin of species" Dawkins refused because he hadn't written the introduction to this particular edition. I mean seriously, behave less like an asshole and it might actually help you to get your message across.
    Richard Dawkins isn't giving us a message like some rube preacher. Richard has been commissioned by the British Government to nurture our understanding of science.

    And in particular Richard has been commissioned to increase our scientific understaning of the origin of species and genetics.

    All of this is beside the point- the point being, Harry Potter is lame. Seriously, how many times can one writer use the sentence "Dumbledore's eyes twinkled" before taking it out of rotation?

    That certainly depends on the lifespan of the author and the method of writing.
