As we continue our journey into the post-wedge world, I think the most remarkable thing about 2006 is that this was the year many critics of ID donned their steel-toed boots and decided to get all righteous. Their new solution, you see, is to declare war on all religion and begin a quest to once and for all rid the world of the religious scourge. These critics not only attacked scientists like Francis Collins and Ken Miller, but even lashed out at agnostics and fellow atheists whose opposition to religion wasn’t pure enough.
The Leader and Face of the newly hatched Anti-Religion Movement is the Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, Richard Dawkins. Yet, just as all his neo-Enlightenment started to unfold, he performed a trick to mesmorize his fans, a feat that will be talked about for years to come.
