Richard Dawkins Planning Atheism Books for Children and Teens to Stop 'Religious Indoctrination'
Christian Today ^ | 8/24/18

Famed atheist Richard Dawkins continues to see belief in God as a threat to humanity and his latest effort to counter it is more books about atheism. But this time, it's not adults he wants to speak to but children and teenagers.

According to recent tweets, the scientist and 'God Delusion' author has two new books in the pipeline, Outgrowing God, which will be about atheism for teenagers, and a second one with the working title of 'Atheism for Children' that will be illustrated.

He explained in tweets this week that his 'Atheism for Children' book is not intended to be a storybook.

'My "Atheism for Children" book will be unflinching, not a storybook: children won't beg parents to buy it for Xmas. Are there parents who'll want to buy it for their children anyway? Do you anticipate a demand? Would you like to see a "children's God Delusion" by me published?' he said.

He then explained in another tweet that his goal was to arm parents against religious indoctrination by schools and grandparents.

Idiot. The only thing holding back the bloodshed is the belief that we are all God's children. Destroy that, and you erase the value of life.

Probably not a lot of parents will buy these books for their children, but bet the farm that they will be prominently displayed in the big chain bookstores and placed in every school and public library where they can continue to inflict maximum damage for years to come.

Why does anyone want to live in a world where there are no consequences if you are never caught.

Socialism and communism both insist there is no God. Over 100 million people have died from their godless policies.

I hope nobody will buy any of his books and stores will refuse to carry them.

This pathetic excuse of a man depends on his readers’ stupidity or ignorance. ALL evidence points to special Creation.

Because there’s so much religious indoctrination in schools, and government proceedings, and ...oh wait...

For a guy who doesnt believe in God be sure seems to be fixated on the topic of God. Well, time and money well spent, there, Dick. Go nutzers.

Because they don’t like God’s rules... so they pretend they don’t exist, so they can do what they want. worship falls idols, be greedy, lying licentious fools. The question to ask the atheist isn’t why don’t you believe in God but “If you could design a universe would you create one with or without God?”

He was a much bigger deal until he decided to take on feminism and ran away with his tail between his legs after getting thrashed on Twitter. Don’t really hear that much from him these days so guess he’s hungry to regain his former popularity.
