Dutch scientists not enthusiastic about Dawkins’ criticism of religion

Recently, Richard Dawkins visited the Dutch university of Groningen for a public lecture. It was a major event, where eventually students sold (originally free) tickets for quite some money on the black market. Anyway, science journalist René Fransen, who works for the Groningen Universiteitskrant as well as for the Nederlands Dagblad did not get the chance to interview Dawkins. Instead, he asked scientists working at Groningen University what their opinion was about Richard Dawkins. I expected them to be enthusiastic about Dawkins’ qualities as a science popularizer. What I did not so much expect was the outright criticism of the scientists when it comes to Dawkins’ crusade against religion. Quite interesting.

  1. Taede, de kaartjes waren niet gratis! 7,50 per stuk en 5 euro voorstudenten, geloof ik. Opbrengst ging naar de Foundation van Richard Dawkins (in plaats van reguliere gage).
