Open Letter

Herr Richard Dawkins,

Please stick to your field of expertise. As when Supreme Court justices lecture us on climatology, and when German philosophers proclaim that Euclid is the end of geometry, so you have joined the ranks of the embarassments to mankind. One can be very intelligent in one thing and very stupid in another - in fact, it seems rather a pattern among intellectuals throughout history. Plato was quite a metaphysician but nearly got himself killed when he tried to apply his political theory to practice in Syracuse. Einstein was rather soft on the Commies, the worst murderers in history. And Al Gore...well, Al must be good at something.

As a philosopher, you are nothing more than an enthusiastic amateur, full of sound, overflowing with fury, and very light on signification.

Here are your options:

1. Learn modus ponens

2. Shut up

3. Entwine

Please choose.

Fondest Regards, Yours, &c.
