George Johnson reports on a meeting where many scientists, including Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris, gathered to bash religion. Luckily, there were some clear-thinking scientists who were present. One such scientist is anthropologist Melvin Konner. According to Johnson's report:

[Dawkins] own take-no-prisoners approach (religious education is “brainwashing” and “child abuse”) was condemned by the anthropologist Melvin J. Konner, who said he had “not a flicker” of religious faith, as simplistic and uninformed.

This is the first time I have seen a scientist criticize Dawkins' pseudoscientific notions of religion as child abuse.
