That world class moron Dawkins was actually asked about Allah the other day. He said hed never thought much about him. How mind bendingly S.T.U.P.I.D. is that?
I don't follow. I go weeks, months, years withouth thinking about Allah. Does that make me stupid?
To an atheist ALL Gods should be the same, some fake god that no sensible person could believe in.
Is that much different than you though? There are hundreds of gods you deem "fake" and don't invest any energy in. When was the last time you sat around thinking about Ra or Thor or Zeus?
It makes sense for religious people to ponder the differences between religions, but not atheists.
Ah, I think I see what you're driving at. Unfortunately, this isn't how it works. Study after study shows that atheists know more about religion than those who believe in those religions. Atheists' bible literacy far outpaces Christian biblical literacy. It's just the way it is.
But back to your point, Dawkins, to his credit, actually "takes on" Islam as much as he does any other religion. (In England, where it's rampant, it's more of a hot-button topic.) I think his saying, "I don't think about a long dead fake prophet" was sort of a rib. Like totally diminishing the god of over a billion people.

(Let's keep Conservatism real.)
I really don’t think you are right about Dawkins. I also sincerely doubt you are right about the Bible literacy of atheists, but what do I know, I’m an RC so my Bible literacy is quite low.
Ra, Thor and Zeus are rather defunct as gods. I don’t think that’s a good example at all.
I’d advise you to give some thought to Allah, and his followers. There a goodly number of them who want to chop YOUR head off right now. They don’t really care what you believe in, or what you think about. I mean, they feel that way about me too, and everyone here, and every over at the NY Times and most other places.
That’s actually a much more pressing issue that Mr. Dawkins, or atheism, or most other things.
