My God has a bigger Forehead than Yours

One of my favorite authors is acclaimed scientist and famous atheist Richard Dawkins. His latest book, The God Delusion, reads like a psychological thriller. An earlier book, Unweaving the Rainbow, sends me into paroxysms of poetic delight every time. On a scale of 1 to 10 of whether you will write a poem after reading his books, I bet you a 10. You should go buy them both now.

However whenever I do a google search on Dawkins to gather material for a seasoned, researched article, I keep getting distracted by one thing. The size of Richard Dawkins' forehead. Seriously. Refer to the pictures. I have never seen anything like it. It beats out the forehead of a typical religious practitioner by at least two or three times. I compared it to my own frontal lobe and came out a chastened and humbled being.

I think I will go now and and do worship on the alter of Rich-Ard Daw-Kins, in hopes that I may gain access to that divine region, His Front Fore-Head.

Richard Dawkins' forehead is so big it won't
even fit on the page:

Haha, my research mentor has quite the dome too. Thanks for killing any hope I have of becoming a great scientist :P

But I thought you were anti-Dawkins. Whence this new conversion?

Not anti-Dawkins, just don't think atheism's got the right focus going. Why obsess about the lack of God when there's sooo much out there?

Also, I cross-posted this article in www.weoped.com, which is a site you definitely should look into. And if you join, be sure to put me down as the referring member. I want to win the Amazon book prize for most members referred. :D

I think Christine is the anti-Dawkins now. Anyway, this post is still cracking me up.

And yes, I caved and started a blog too.
