Neil DeGrasse Tyson Versus Richard Dawkins

Tyson questions the effectiveness of Dawkins’ barbed rhetorical style, and Richard Dawkins–as only Richard Dawkins could–responds brilliantly.

  1. Richard Dawkins is a beautiful wit indeed…

    “Dear Muslima
    Stop whining, will you. Yes, yes, I know you had your
    genitals mutilated with a razor blade, and … yawn … don’t tell me yet
    again, I know you aren’t allowed to drive a car, and you can’t leave the
    house without a male relative, and your husband is allowed to beat you,
    and you’ll be stoned to death if you commit adultery. But stop whining,
    will you. Think of the suffering your poor American sisters have to put
    up with.
    Only this week I heard of one, she calls herself
    Skep”chick”, and do you know what happened to her? A man in a hotel
    elevator invited her back to his room for coffee. I am not exaggerating.
    He really did. He invited her back to his room for coffee. Of course
    she said no, and of course he didn’t lay a finger on her, but even so …
    And you, Muslima, think you have misogyny to complain about! For goodness sake grow up, or at least grow a thicker skin.
