Richard Dawkins on the High Number of Jewish Nobel Prize Winners Compared To Muslims

Topics: Israel, Political News and commentaries

Addressing the controversy surrounding a Tweet he wrote during the conferment of Nobel prizes earlier this month, Dawkins offered up something of a mea culpa, stating: "That was unfortunate":

"I should have compared religion with religion and compared Islam not with Trinity College but with Jews, because the number of Jews who have won Nobel Prizes is phenomenally high."

Continuing, he said: "Race does not come into it. It is pure religion and culture. Something about the cultural tradition of Jews is way, way more sympathetic to science and learning and intellectual pursuits than Islam. That would have been a fair comparison. Ironically, I originally wrote the tweet with Jews and thought, That might give offense. And so I thought I better change it."

It is indeed all about "Religion and culture" ... and it is these differences that continue to keep Islam stuck deep in the Dark Ages (Video).

Here's a short clip of the above linked video:
