Quote: Dawkins on Sadism

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

"... if there is only one Creator who made the tiger and the lamb, the cheetah and the gazelle, what is He playing at? Is he a sadist who enjoys spectator blood sports? ... Is he manoeuvring to maximize David Attenborough's television ratings?"

Richard Dawkins, River out of Eden: A Darwinian view of life, Harper Collins, 1995, p105.

Editorial Comment: Dawkins again betrays his ignorance of God's word. The Creator does tell us what has produced the tiger which eats the lamb, and the cheetah which savages a gazelle. The Creator made everything very good. All creatures ate only plants, so don't blame God for that which is bad! When He gave the world into man's hands, it was in perfect shape. Then man sinned and death came upon the planet. Since then, man's sin has progressively afflicted the whole earth. Many of the original vegetarian creatures have degenerated till they have made the earth a place to kill or be killed. Dawkins’ deliberately ignorant comments are just more evidence of his rebellion against the Creator.
