Richard Dawkins SLAMS Muslims!
HUFFINGTON POST) Richard Dawkins responded to outrage over his controversial anti-Muslim tweets by calling the incident a “storm in a teacup.”
The outspoken atheist started a Twitter furor by writing on August 8:
“All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.”
The statement appeared to say, “Muslims as a group haven’t achieved anything worthwhile since the Middle Ages.” He’s said before, “I think Islam is one of the great evils of the world,” as he subscribes to the “New Humanism” brand of atheism which places little to no value in religion.
PPSIMMONS: On the OTHER HAND!
The Nobel Prize is an annual, international prize first awarded in 1901 for achievements in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, and Peace. An associated prize in Economics has been awarded since 1969. Nobel Prizes have been awarded to over 800 individuals, of whom at least 20% were Jews, although Jews comprise less than 0.2% of the world's population.
Jews have been recipients of all six awards.
