Dar Trek


“The Bible itself is as toxic as the Qur'an but most Christians are not taught to believe it literally. Most Christians are taught to believe it metaphorically or allegorically.” -- Richard Dawkins

One small step for One of the Four Horsemen (Hitchens, Harris, Dennet, Dawkins), a giant Leap Backwards for Kuffarkind (or one giant foot in the mouth...).

More precisely, my overneat formulation obscures the fact that these “New Atheists” who have boldly gone where no atheist has gone before — viz., toward the unknown reaches of the Outer Space of Criticism of Islam — have always brought along for the space voyage the provisions & jetpacks of various memes & fallacies from their world of Planet PC MC, including Tu Quoque (or, rather, Ego Quoque) and Equivalencism (i.e., “Christianity is just as bad as Islam” or any number of its infuriating variants).

While the Four Horsemen are not lockstep carbon copy clones of each other, necessarily, and some are less asymptotic than others, nevertheless they all share the same inability to cut the umbilical cord leading their oxygen supply back to their PC MC Mothership—which is probably why Sam Harris has been so gullibly naive as to take the hand of the pseudo-“Reformer” Maajid Nawaz—the First Muslim in Space—and go space-walking off into the supernova sunset of a new dawn (or rather black hole) of the “Future of Tolerance” (the title of Harris’s new book (or rather Bromance Novel) he has co-authored with Nawaz).

And it's probably the same reason why Dawkins did nothing to counter the camelshit from Nawaz when the latter was deftly massaging and maneuvering and manipulating the panel of Kuffar—including Dawkins, Bill Maher, and Michael Moore—scratching their heads to try to understand 911 and terrorism in general on a show from a couple of years ago with exquisitely unintentional (and painful) irony entitled "Maajid Nawaz explains the difference between Islam and Islamism to Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins".

P.S.: While I appreciate the asymptotic critiques of Islam from any one or more of the “Four Horsemen” (Dawkins, Sam Harris, Dennet, Hitchens), they inevitably amount to “close but no cigar” —and after 14 years of diverse bullshit in this vast, straggling, incoherent Conversation the West is having about the problem of Islam, we desperately need a cigar by now, especially from those who are influential.
