Richard Dawkins, what on earth happened to you?

Logical Positivism has already been found to be wanting, some just haven't figured it out yet: Richard Dawkins, what on earth happened to you? | Eleanor Robertson | Comment is free |

"To him, the humanities are expendable window-dressing, and the consciousness and emotions of his fellow human beings are byproducts of natural selection that frequently hobble his pursuit and dissemination of cold, hard facts. His orientation toward the world is the product of a classic category mistake, but because he’s nestled inside it so snugly he perceives complex concepts outside of his understanding as meaningless dribble. If he can’t see it, then it doesn’t exist, and anyone trying to describe it to him is delusional and possibly dangerous."
