    Richard Dawkins is a eugenicist

    https://twitter.com/RichardDawkins/s...83369641824266

    What a vile and disgusting person. Can we please start ostracizing bigots like Dawkins from the secular humanist community and stop putting them on intellectual pedestals?
    I have a simple worldview: I'm for freedom but against "freedumb".
    I'm for liberty and against "liberteh!1".
    I support policy based on sound social science and facts not following the "kawnstitution" off a cliff.

    He is indeed in many ways a vile and disgusting person, but he said twice, clearly, that he deplores eugenics and a third time that it "would be bad." It's right there at your link in plain, simple English, which you should have been able to comprehend.

    His point was also stated multiple times, again in plain, simple English, so don't bother asking me what his point is. Read the words which appear when one clicks your link.
    "They don't believe in our institutions!" the Democrats wail, as they go on and on about how the Senate and Electoral College need to be abolished, the Supreme Court altered, and that the upcoming election result can't be trusted if it doesn't go their way.

    I'm confused, what part of "eugenics is bad" did you not understand?

    I think most missed his point, however, like Hawking, people will continue to misunderstand and misrepresent him. It's human nature.

    So, of course, you're really doing this.

    For what it's worth, I no longer think you're a Poe.
