    Richard Dawkins only views seem to be that he hates religion and loves Richard Dawkins and thinks he himself is so utterly intelligent he can change the world to atheism.

    He has a webiste. You should look it up. He talks about his viewpoints on science.

    I don't want to do your homework for you. Sorry.

    So this is for a "homework thing," and you've come up with the novel idea of getting a quick and easy answer to your question through R&S. Sorry, girl, but you're going to have to put out a bit more effort (at least from me). What you want to know about Dawkins, besides the fact that he's a British biologist and probably the most well-known atheist (although sometimes he sounds more like an agnostic) around today, may be found by READING some of his written work, the most famous being "The God Delusion." Caution: Some of the stuff in the book will most probably be way over your head.

    Sheesh! Some people are just so freaking lazy.

    That's a poor representation of Dawkins as an evolutionary biologist, but bluntly, he does think religion is stupid and he is right.

    "all i know is that he thought religion was stupid"

    I would say that fairly sums it up. He has got nothing more to say really. Every time he writes a book which is supposed to bring religious beliefs tumbling down, and it fails to do so, he feels compelled to write yet another one, and then another, and then another....

    He's one of the most eminent evolutionary biologists on the planet and unlike the creationists who vilify him his qualifications are real and came from proper universities.

    He is a talented biologist who also happens to be an atheist.

    Go do your own homework. He does have a website, you know.

    Also, a recent book on the topic; read it.

    Read his book, It's much more interesting than the bible, and actually it is the complete opposite of the bible as it contains the truth.
