RICHARD DAWKINS PROVES GOD - PART I
(posted: December 2013)

* All scripture references are from the New King James Version (NKJV) of the Bible, unless otherwise noted.

  1. There seems to be a supernatural law of patterns at work in the universe such that events unfold around a framework established by God from the beginning. Though the words of the Bible were written over a 900 year period beginning some three thousand years ago, the influence of the patterns, as described on Proves God, reaches forever forward and forever backwards.

    By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
                                                      Hebrews 11:3

    For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God.
                                                      Hebrews 3:4

As a carpenter frames a house, so God’s word frames the worlds. Now Professor Richard Dawkins will surely take exception to this supernatural law of patterns upon hearing of it as he has made it abundantly clear that he opposes all things supernatural.

“My answer is that the big war is not between evolution and creationism, but between naturalism and
supernaturalism.” 1

Fortunately for Proves God, Sir Richard Dawkins, chief of the gawkins (see article this website), has allowed us to look at his life and body of works with closer scrutiny. Really though, he had no say in the matter as they are part of the historical record and the historical record is available for all to see. Should Professor Dawkins, life and works unfold according to God’s framework in the Bible (and they do - I’ve read ahead), then he will have some serious explaining to do. For example, how could Richard Dawkins himself become the evidence that validates the two things he despises most - belief in God and belief in God’s Book?

The first date of record we will look at for Professor Richard Dawkins is the most recent one he provided - September 24, 2013. This is the date his autobiography chronicling the first half of his life (An Appetite for Wonder) was published. For the sake of brevity we will limit our discussion to the year pattern for the professor’s most recent date of record.

  1. Biblical Year Pattern for September 24, 2013/Hebrew Year 5774
    (Psalm 13, 113, 74)
    Note: The Bible pattern formulas never change. They work the same way every time and reveal God’s invisible hand through the effect of His Book on the physical world.
    1. Psalm 13:1-4 [God hides Himself from the wise. Enemy exalted for a time.]
      1. ... How long will you hide Your face from me?

      “Bertrand Russell had that question put to him and he said something like: Sir (God), why did you take such pains to hide yourself?”

      1. ... How long will the enemy be exalted over me?

      “Richard Dawkins celebrates a victory over creationists.” 1

      “Atheists are winning the war against religion, Richard Dawkins, the author of the God Delusion has said.” 2

      [The enemy exalted for a time, but not forever]

      1. ... Enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death.

“Faith is blind trust in the absence of evidence, ... .”
                                                  Richard Dawkins

“I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.”
                                                  Richard Dawkins

[But whose blind eyes need enlightening - Dawkins or believers?]

  1. Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

“Dawkins has become Darwin’s rotweiller. ... so intent on prevailing in intellectual combat that he alienates (even those who agree with him). (He’s) a ferocious public intellectual.” 3

“The theatricality of his delivery - each adjective attenuated to maximize the insult ... .” 3

[Taking on God with attenuated adjectives. Professor Dawkins, do you see the quote, “prevailing in intellectual combat” in
verse 4?]

  1. Psalm 74:2, 4, 7-10, 15-18, 22, 23
    1. Remember Your congregation, which You have purchased of old, the tribe Your inheritance, which You have redeemed - this Mount Zion where You have dwelt.

    “Science (will be) revealing all kinds of things. ... but it is extremely unlikely it (science finding possibility of God) would hone in on an idea from a Bronze Age tribe in The desert.” 4

    [Bronze Age tribe in the desert? Do you Professor Dawkins, see your quote in the words, “ ... which You have purchased of old, the tribe of Your inheritance?”]

    4a. The enemies roar in the midst of Your meeting place; ...

    “(Dawkins) has employed a scorched earth vocabulary to take on religion, 3

    “(Dawkins) demolishes the wobbly logic of a rival
    in debate 3

    “(Dawkins) intent on prevailing in intellectual combat ... a ferocious public intellectual.” 3

    “Dawkins, slight of build and ferociously verbal ...” 3

    [Professor Dawkins, do you roar in public debates?]

    b. ... they set up their banners for signs.

“But even as Dawkins waved the banner of
evolution ...” 3

“London buses have been outfitted with the following banner ads. ‘There is probably no God; Now stop worrying and enjoy life.’” 5



[Do you like to wave and post banners Professor?]

      1. They have set fire to Your sanctuary; they have defiled the dwelling place of Your name ... .

      “An unabashed atheist and an avidly polemical public intellectual, (Dawkins) has employed a scorched-earth vocabulary to take on religion ... .” 3

      [Do you verbally set fire to your adversaries Professor?]

      1. They said in their hearts, “Let us destroy them altogether. ...”

      “Professor Dawkins makes a festive vow to destroy Christianity.” 6

      “Do you worry that if we win and, so to speak, destroy Christianity ...?” 7

      [Is it your intent to destroy Christianity Professor?]

      1. We do not see our signs, nor is there any prophet who knows how long.

      “There is no God, and Dawkins is his prophet.” 8

      1. O God, How long will the adversary reproach? Will the enemy blaspheme Your name forever?

      “(The New Atheists) condemn not just belief in God but respect for belief in God.” 9

      “Richard Dawkins, the leading light of the New Atheism movement ... .” 9

      [Do you see yourself in this verse Professor Dawkins?]

      1. You broke open the fountain and the flood; ... (See Genesis 7:11)
        [Professor Dawkins likes to compare the flood described in Genesis with flood stories from other cultures. But unlike the flood stories from other cultures, Mr. Dawkins life and works are authenticating the Genesis flood through Psalm 74:15.]

      2. The day is Yours, the night also is Yours; You have prepared the light and the sun.

      “... A god which listens to prayers, forgives our sins, performs cheap miracles ... goes against the god of the physicist, the divine cosmologist, set up when he set up the great laws of nature.” 3
                                                        Richard Dawkins

      [Psalm 74:16 describes “the God of the physicist, the Divine Cosmologist”, the God who set up the laws of nature. Authenticated by the life and works of Richard Dawkins.]

      1. You have set up the borders of the earth; You have made summer and winter.

      “Dawkins (disparages) a religious literalism that esteems a biblical view of creation against the mass of geological and paleobiological evidence that contradicts it.” 3
                                                        Richard Dawkins

      [Psalm 74:17 “esteems a biblical view of creation.” Authenticated by the life and works of Richard Dawkins.

      1. Remember this, that the enemy has reproached, O Lord, and that a foolish people hasblasphemed Your name.

      “Throughout his remarks, Dawkins could barely suppress the contempt he feels for mystical religion.” 3

      “Dawkins launched into a series of elegant denunciations. He disparaged the United States as a nation of ‘religious maniacs’. ... how do scientists (that believe) reconcile this with the sort of petty, cheap, parochial, niggling religion ... . Each adjective was attenuated to maximize the insult.” 3

      [Richard Dawkins is one of the few professional blasphemers in the world. Do you see yourself in verse 18, Professor?]

      1. Arise, O God, Plead Your own cause; remember how the foolish man reproaches You daily.

      “Mostly he (Dawkins) stays at home to do what he does best - think about, and write about, evolution.” 3

      “Dawkins is openly agreeing with the most stubborn fundamentalist that evolution must lead to atheism.” 9

      “He is Darwin’s St. Paul. His anger against God seems to arise not so much from His non-existence as from His effrontery in disagreeing with Messrs Darwin and Dawkins.” 10

      [The foolish man reproaches God daily, staying at home to think and write about evolution and atheism. Do you see yourself in verse 22, Professor?]

      1. Do not forget the tumult of your enemies, the tumult of those who rise up against You increases daily.

      “Richard Dawkins: We are winning the war against religion.” 2

      “(Dawkins is) a great scientist, a great writer about science and ... a world-famous evangelical missionary against God.” 10

      “(Dawkins) is Darwin’s St. Paul. His anger against God seems to arise ... from His effrontery in disagreeing with Messrs Darwin and Dawkins.” 10

      [Do you see yourself in verse 23, Professor? Are you ramping up your assault on Christianity?]

  1. Part I of Richard Dawkins Proves God is only the opening salvo. There is much more we can learn about Dr. Dawkins through the Bible patterns, all based on the dates that he himself provides. It seems that even the great atheist Richard Dawkins is part of God’s intelligent design.

On a call-in program from 2006, Professor Dawkins was asked what he would say to God to justify his lifelong atheism. Professor Dawkins reply was,

“I’d quote Bertrand Russell: ‘Not enough evidence, God, not enough evidence.’”

Well Professor, you are the evidence that proves God. Do you have eyes to see?
