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.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
