Richard Dawkins – Reading Hate Mail From The Best And Brightest

YouTube player

It’s said that when Richard Dawkins talks, he’s not only heard, but felt. He’s one of the most militant atheists I’ve seen, and most of his talks are of a rather serious nature. That’s why I find it so interesting (and funny) to see a lighter side to Dawkins. From what I’ve read, the amount of hate mail that he receives each month is astronomical; being able to poke fun at his detractors while hanging out with his friends is fairly impressive, especially given that many of the emails and letters he receives come packed with threats upon his life. Seeing the letters that he receives really helps me appreciate how tolerant and open-minded religious fundamentalists people really are.

I'm a co-founder and writer here at Unfinished Man. I write, manage the look and feel of the website, and make sure that nothing breaks. I also reply to the vast majority of our emails, so if you're sending one through, I suggest you be nice. Everyone says I'm the least offensive of our writers, so they gave the email jockey task to me. When I'm not improving the site, I write about fashion, video games, politics, and anything related to science and technology.
