The Richard Dawkins Collection
- The Richard Dawkins: Collections review by JE
Richard Dawkins gives a measured and gentle explanation of the knowledge that was discovered by Charles Darwin. Today scientists are discovering more and more about out Universe, ourselves, and our place amongst all the life that is on our planet today. With the latest work on quantum mechanics, at last the separate subjects of biology, chemistry, and physics are coming together, and now for example human genes are able to be switched off if they are not wholly correct, and replaced with corrected genes. Just at the stage of miraculous work being done; in the Middle East; people are behaving as we did in the early middle ages; and they have fixed ideas about their particular views of the world. We also used to believe in superstitious ideas which mostly have now been recognised as not valid. Then we also were cruel, as these people are now. But now we do not believe these ideas are true. Our religious beliefs are now tempered with more intelligent knowledge. Now in the West, people want to base their behaviour on that which they think is good. The moral compass is to be more compassionate, and less dogmatic. I think that Richard Dawkins books help us to become better people. And for that reason, I would recommend anyone interested in the human race to read them and to see if it changes opinions.
