I would just like to defend Richard Dawkins against those who are accusing him of being an idiot, after his perplexity at the high proportion of Jewish Nobel Prize Winners. Dawkins is not an idiot. He’s just spiritually ignorant and intellectually arrogant. His intelligence lulls him into thinking he can speak as authoritatively on religion as he does on biology, even though religion is way beyond his field of expertise. This is not idiocy though.
