    You must watch him perform here if you haven't already.

    Cheers.

  • "dawkins is very narrow-minded."

    Because, presumably, he does not believe in the same things you do?

    As opposed to yours which is totally closed?

    It would be helpful if you could explain why instead of just stoop to infantile name calling.

  • what dawkins is doing is to eschew all forms of inquiry that do not conform to the scientific method. if this isnt narrow-mindedness i don't know what it is.

    *ALL* forms of inquiry? Where does he say this? Can you point me to it?

    That article was on alternative medicine. How do you establish the truth or falsity of claims from charlatans and quacks if not for the scientific method. Perhaps you know of a better method, in which case, please share it with us.

  • If you look at the videos PZ linked to, anon, you will find that Dawkins does not eschew all forms of inquiry other than the scientific method. He acknowledges that morality comes under the purview of moral philosphy, and he is also able to appreciate the beauty of art and poetry without having to subject them to the scientific method.

    You are wrong when you say that Dawkins eschews all forms of inquiry that do not conform to the scientific method, but let's be honest: that is not why you called him narrow-minded in the first place.

    You called him narrow-minded because he does not believe in the same things you do, which presumably cannot be proven by the scientific method.

    Why don't you tell us what these things are, and explain why they should not be subjected to the scientific method, and so prove Dawkins to be narrow-minded?

    How about ghosts for instance? I'm not saying for sure that they exist because honestly I haven't had any encounters with the supernatural. But there have been reported sightings. People have claimed to have seen them. To Dawkins, this wouldn't count as knowledge because you'd find it incredibly difficult to conduct experiments to investigate the veracity of the claim due to the inconsistency with which such sightings occur. But why should you disregard this claim simply because by scientific standards it fails to qualify as knowledge? Isn't there a possibility that the eyes of these witnesses were not playing tricks on them? Isn't there a possibility these people were not lying when they swore they had seen ghosts? Isn't there a possibility that there are indeed ghosts?

  • anon,

    I'll let Dawkins answer your question in my post today...
