God in the Old Testament is perceived in many ways, from violent to loving, to unjust and fair-minded. David Lamb and Richard Dawkins both explain contradicting perceptions of God. Dawkins’ quote from, “The God Delusion” gives off a negative tone of God’s image. Dawkins uses words such as: misogynistic, megalomaniacal, and a capriciously malevolent bully.” While Lamb applauds Dawkins’ attempt to bring the issues up to the surface, Lamb believes that Dawkins exaggerates the negative side of God.
Introduction When reading The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, many topics were brought up about genes and their role within organisms (Dawkins). Some of the topics included where genes may have originated (Dawkins 12), the idea that organisms are “gene machines” (Dawkins 46), and mutualism (Dawkins 166). However, the topic that Dawkins covered that I found to be the most interesting was the topic of child rearing (109). Many of the ideas the Dawkins mentions and interprets are very similar to how evolutionary biology discusses how and why animals regulate the number of offspring they produce (112).

During the film where Dawkins had a interview with Lawrence krauss, Krauss asked dawkins , would he explain science or destroy religion.
DAWKINS’S MAIN ARGUMENTS Dawkins’ main arguments are that science has made God needless. Science will eventually explain why everything seems to be the why they are and why certain things exist. For example, science has shown us that the variety of organic life can be explained through natural processes, like natural selection and random mutation. This means that there is no requirement for any supernatural creator or designer of organic entities. Although science does not have an explanation for everything – like where did the beginning of the universe come from and where did the beginning of life from non-living matter come from – the time will eventually come that, through research, progress will be made and
In the late 19th Century a German theorist by the name of Wilhelm Marr created the term “Anti-Semitism”, which is a prejudice term against people who are Jewish. Even though he was the first to officially give hatred for Jews a name, Jews were hated way before then. Hatred for Jews started in the early days simply because the did not believe in the Christian principle. The rest of Europe believe the Jewish people to be the folks who killed Jesus Christ. Wilhelm made the word “Anti-Semitism” because he wanted to put his hatred for his detestation into scientific form so he could spew his hateful dialogues to convince people of his new impartial way of seeing Jewish people.
