Let’s look at two quotes from Richard Dawkins and examine them for their factual content and for their coherent merit.
First quote: “The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.”
First off, Richard Dawkins implies that it is a “fact” that “live evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing” which broken down shows that Richard Dawkins says everything around us, universe, earth, you, and me, etc. came “out of literally nothing.”
Have you ever seen anything create itself from nothing? Just how long do you think it takes nothing to become something other than nothing performed all by nothing?
Do you know what nothing is? Nothing is the sort of thing rocks dream about. Nothing, no time, no anything, just nothing at all.
Can you do simple math? Zero plus Zero equal Zero; Nothing plus Nothing equal Nothing; Nothing times Nothing plus Nothing equal Nothing.
At what point does nothing become not nothing on its own? How many times nothing does it take for nothing plus nothing times nothing to become something?
Have you ever sat down and rationally thought through the validity of the universe and life coming from nothing with nothing causing everything to exist?
Second quote: “The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry.”
It takes the meme for blind faith to believe everything came from nothing by nothing at all.
