Dawkins Responds To The Twitterstorm


Dawkins isn't great on this stuff, but he's competent--and that puts him head and shoulders above most of his antagonists.

Here's his response to the twitterstorm.

As far as I can tell, he's right.

Jim B thinks I misread the Jezebel piece I'm going to check that out again. But, bracketing that for the time being, I don't see anything wrong with what Dawkins writes in the new piece.

The two serious points at issue seem to be:

1. Some violent crimes are worse than others
2. One can recognize that violent crime x is worse than violent crime y without thereby endorsing y.
