Giving further ammunition to those who say that atheists cannot fully value all human life, Richard Dawkins has now stated that it would be "immoral" not to abort a baby with Down syndrome. Are you surprised?
It was just last week that Dawkins exposed the irrationality of his atheism when he claimed that nice, nonviolent practitioners of religion served as enablers for religious terrorism.
He first noted that, "It's very important that we should not demonize ordinary, law-abiding, very decent Muslims, which of course is the vast majority in this country" (speaking of the UK).
But that was only the prelude to the punchline: "[However] there is a sense in which the moderate, nice religious people — nice Christians, nice Muslims — make the world safe for extremists."
