    Dawkins considers religious indoctrination as a form of child abuse, as it essentially robs children of the potential to develop in more rational directions, permanently canalizing them in idiosyncratic traditions with little hope of realizing human universals.

    I could not have summed up my feelings about this blinded, lemming-like aspect of human behavior any better than the above.  Bravo to you or Dawkins!

    Political censorship is the root of all evil! It is the antithesis to a functional democracy!!

      my interpretation of what he meant, figuring that he is well-acquainted with the topic of imprinting.

      We don't have time for short-term thinking.
