Richard Dawkins again has refused to debate his theories with anyone professing belief in a Creator, citing their intellectual inferiority. He has built his public career deriding anyone who believes in a Creator, but when someone challenges him he runs away.
Richard Dawkins Runs From a Good Fight
Leading Darwinist Richard Dawkins Dodges Debates, Refuses to Defend Evolution as The Greatest Show On Earth
The dogmatism of Richard Dawkins' pseudo-scientific views has become a common theme among some scientists today who have other agendas besides helping the world through the advance of science. Not realizing how much of a dead-end their agenda leads to, they resort to making headlines by saying things like "outspoken religious commitment is a sign of mild dementia."
God vs. Science Isn't the Issue
But the worst thing a scientist can be is dogmatic. Scientific theories rely on falsifiability for them to be sustainable. And a credible scientist is one who accepts that their theories could be proven wrong. But relying on straw man arguments to distract the public away from debate is hardly scientific or even logical.
Just this past week we have many examples of how various scientific theories of the past have been falsified by more contemporary research. Here are a few examples:
How The Junk DNA Hypothesis Has Changed Since 1980
A Third of Dinosaur Species Never Existed?
Even the most powerful arguments of the Darwinists have recently been refuted. Archaeopteryx is cited by Darwinists as one of the greatest proofs for the evolution of one species into another. Not so, says recent research.

Thus to defend their theories, the New Atheists like Richard Dawkins are caught red handed citing as proofs of their theories to gullible audiences theories that have long been disproven.
If you watch this documentary clip of Richard Dawkins from last year in which he hosts The Genius of Charles Darwin, then you will notice that at the 7 minute and 30 second mark he endorses Ernst Haeckel’s bogus embryo diagrams which magically appear onscreen right before your very eyes:
That’s right, Richard Dawkins circa 2008 was still peddling fraudulent "evidence" for evolution that no self-respecting embryologist would defend, and that most biology textbooks dropped years ago due in large part to biologist Jonathan Wells’ masterful book Icons of Evolution, which shamed Darwinists into cleaning up their act. Randy Olson, call home. Armed with retro science like this, no wonder Dawkins is afraid to debate Stephen Meyer.
