Repeatedly, over the last few years (there's a button on the right for all my related posts if you want to check and see) I have warned that the worst thing about the gang of dumbo hero-worshippers Richard Dawkins has squandered his good name for is that they are as fickle and as inconsistent as they are stupid.
Time and again I pointed out that while they may grovel at his feet and call him 'Prof'' on his tragic, ridiculous website today, that's no reason to think they won't cast him loose and move on to some other guru tomorrow.
Over and over I warned that while it may look to him as though they are his acolytes, in reality it is they who hold the strings and he who must dance, and one mis-step and they'll reach for the scissors.
That Darwinism and atheism have become fashionable to the Left, I noted, is a recent and unsustainable accident, and thanks only to the opportunity it offers to attack Christians, and especially Christian Americans.
In the seventies it was deemed a sinister, right wing science, as Edward O. Wilson remembers only too well - and Dawkins should.
How could it not be? Darwinism proves that socialism is impossible and its political implementation can only ever be disastrous.
To his eternal shame, Dawkins, who is clever enough to know all this, pretended it wasn't in order to be a hero to da kids, and began prostituting his talent in a series of inane articles and rabble-rousing speeches, lending his support to crapulous schemes and campaigns like the atheist bus and the attempt to arrest the Pope when he visited Britain, and writing The God Delusion, surely the worst book ever written by a truly great man.
I said that his fall would sooner or later come. I said that the problem would be Islam. He knows, as all sane men must, that it is a unique and pressing problem in the world. They know, as all right-thinking drones must, that to say such a thing is not only less fun than insulting Christians (and a hell of a lot less safe) but also strictly prohibited, on the grounds that many Muslims are non-Caucasian.
I could tell, from his nervous little asides on the matter on his website, that he was finding it harder and harder to resist the call to reason he has now fought against so hard for so long. It was like he was willing them to see it his way, to use all the capital he had earned bigging up gay marriage and slagging off George Bush to get them to take a step towards him for once, just this once...
Sorry, mate: they're idiots.
And I told you that, too.
And now, it's starting.
I said it would be all for the best if it convinced him to go back to doing his job: being one of the greatest explicators (and no mean innovator neither) in the history of science, and so it would.
I also said that when it came it would give me no pleasure, and I was certainly right there.
It's incredibly sad.
