Atheist Richard Dawkins makes some startling comments on religion

Prominent atheist Richard Dawkins unleashed on believers in a recent interview with Playboy magazine, calling into question the intelligence of anyone who believes in God. His superiority complex is really quite interesting, especially given some of his explanations for the origin of life - namely the one about how space aliens designed life and ‘seeded it’ here on Earth. Genius.

The Blaze reported on the interview:

Of course, many intelligent and educated people do, indeed, embrace the existence of a higher power. However, it seems Dawkins either avoids or simply hasn’t encountered these people.

As for the Bible and Jesus Christ — central tenets of the Christian faith — the famed non-theist didn’t have many favorable accolades to share. On the sociopolitical front, he believes that the holy books associated with Christianity, Judaism and Islam will prevent peace from ever coming to fruition in the Middle East.

“There’s not much hope to the extent that the most influential protagonists both base their hostility on 2,000-year-old books that they believe give them title to the land,” he explained.

Rather than staking the claim that Jesus Christ was merely a historical figure, but that he simply wasn’t the son of God as many other atheists have done, Dawkins seems to cast doubt on his existence.

“The evidence he existed is surprisingly shaky,” he told Playboy. “The earliest books in the New Testament to be written were the Epistles, not the Gospels. It’s almost as though Saint Paul and others who wrote the Epistles weren’t that interested in whether Jesus was real.”

In the interview, Dawkins claims that he thinks God is as likely to exist as the tooth fairy. And while some of his critics say this leaves an opening, he fired back "You can think so, if you think there’s an opening for the tooth fairy."

"Now, what's interesting about that is you can disprove the tooth fairy.  There is a well known process that I won't go into some extreme detail as some of our listeners may be children, but there is a process in which the tooth turns into the quarter under the pillow.  This process is known to many adults.  So that process can be proved to be very much of this Earth," Stu joked.

And while Dawkins doesn't believe God could have created life on Earth, he doesn't rule out aliens seeding the Earth with life. In the Ben Stein documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed , he said, " Well, it could come about in the following way. It could be that at some earlier time somewhere in the universe, a civilization evolved by probably some kind of Darwinian means to a very, very high level of technology and designed a form of life that they seeded onto perhaps this planet."

Let's just say Pat and Stu didn't believe this was a very credible answer:

PAT: Wait. Okay. So it could be that aliens developed.

STU: Yeah, mmm‑hmmm.

PAT: And planted the seed that developed here.

STU: Right. So ‑‑

PAT: Hmmm.

STU: Obviously belief in God is crazy.

PAT: That God is ridiculous. But aliens.

STU: But belief in aliens creating a form of life and seeding it here on Earth.

PAT: Makes a lot more sense.

STU: Planting it like corn, for us to grow into the society that we've become, that's sensible. That is his legitimate explanation.

PAT: So there's like ‑‑

STU: For life on Earth.

PAT: There are universal farmers, or galaxy farmers.

STU: Yes, galaxy.

PAT: Who go around the galaxy and they just plant crops. And those crops just happen to be humans.

STU: Right. That's how we got here.

PAT: Or life at least, right? Because we weren't humans that they planted. They planted the seed. It started to grow into some sort of life and then it evolved.

STU: Yeah, right. My favorite part of this is ‑‑

PAT: Good.

STU: ‑‑ not the fact that he has to admit that intelligent design is a possibility. It's not the fact that he believes that it must have been aliens creating life and planting it here. But my favorite part of all of this is even if his scenario is 100% accurate, it still asks the question, "Where did that civilization come from?"

PAT: Right, right.

STU: He still hasn't answered the question.

PAT: Still hasn't figured it out.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
