("Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." --Jeremiah 1:5)
Who we are as humans is so much more than a collection of rationalizations.

I feel sorry for the Pope and all old Catholic priests. Imagine having a wasted life to look back on and no sex.
If all life is random and meaningless, there is no way anyone can have a wasted or unwasted life. Indeed, all our discoveries in science and technology are equally meaningless.

"Consequently, on Dawkins own account of reason, his verdict on the popes life is the cerebral equivalent of covert flatulence gone terribly wrong: not silent and not deadly."
I think Beckwith is saying that, based on Dawkins' own irrational, unreasonable reasoning, his stunted thinking and inadequate ideas expressed here are both loud and stinky, and his logic flaws are glaringly apparent and detectable, and are thoroughly noxious and nauseating.

500 words to answer a tweet of 140 cifers. Dawkins is a dishonest publicity hound and should be ignored. He will not be changed, but there are many others who heard and comprehended what the pope was saying.
