Richard Dawkins Would Like to Start Atheist School

By Rick Pearcey • June 26, 2010, 01:48 PM

In such a school, Dawkins says he "would never want to indoctrinate children in atheism. . . . Instead, children should be taught to ask for evidence, to be sceptical, critical, open-minded. If children understand that beliefs should be substantiated with evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, revelation or faith, they will automatically work out for themselves that they are atheists."

For someone who despises Christianity, Dawkins seems to know nothing of its emphasis on freedom of thought, critique, the demand for evidence, the appropriateness of questioning, and the call for commitment of the whole person based on evidence and rational analysis vis-a-vis the real world we know in our daily experience.
