Richard Dawkins stranded in a world of purpose


Article reads: Moreover, if the universe is the merely a product of blind forces, then Dawkins himself — and by extension his sloppily arrived at conclusion about the origin of all things — cannot claim special exemption from his reductionist criteria of origins. For in a universe governed by chance, as C.S. Lewis once wrote, “all thoughts are mere events with irrational causes.” One in which ideas, including Dawkins’ intimations about the beauty of an explicable universe, are mere reactions “determined by ultimately amoral and irrational sources, and no more capable of rightness or wrongness than a hiccup or a sneeze.”
