Why do Atheists allow someone so daft like Dawkins to lead them astray?

Quote of the day by Mr. Dawkins:

“Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed while it’s happening.”

This quote is so dumb on so many levels and layers and areas.

A very strange way to get around the fact that Evolution has not been observed is to claim that the observation of it happened while nobody was around. So I guess Dawkins is talking about his spirit floating around on earth and observing Evolution. Because by his logic, we can claim that anything has been observed, it's just that oh no one was there to observe it. LOL

Now by this logic, creation has been observed, it's just that it hasn't been observed while it's happening. You Atheists are really special.

    Atheism is not a religion. We have no leaders or priests. There are people like Dawkins who choose to write and speak. I never heard of him before dropping religion and deities.

    Evolution is a fact, that even Pope Francis does not challenge. The origin of humans as common ancestor is not as well proven as we don't have a full fossil record.

    We can manipulate genetics and create new species, called GMOs. We just can't yet create life from organic material. 

    Species evolve at different rates of change.

    Your quotation is meaningless, and humans have evolved in some ways over human history. 

    A confrontational approach shows a weakness in theism, because criticism rather than showing proof or even justification of faith is a weak position.

    You fail to recognize that atheism, to most atheists is "I don't believe in a deity." 

    You can have your own personal beliefs that don't intrude on secular living and don't attempt to state you are better than me with insults.

    Is "Human aging has been observed. It's just that it hasn't been observed while it's happening" equally dumb?

    Evolution is a PROVEN FACT. Your inability to understand that just means you are mentally deficient

    Its a shame you don't understand that quote, and that you have no clue about atheists.

    But its normal to get this kind of uneducated question from believers lately - seems reading a book is too hard for them.

    Evolution has been observed as its happening - you must have heard about the virus infecting more people in the US than anywhere else.  That virus evolved to infect humans.

    You must be aware of drug-resistant bacteria in hospitals - they evolved to survive antibiotic drugs.

    You are probably an anti-vaxxer so you don't get a flu shot each year, but rational people do because the flu virus evolves into a new strain each year.

    But if you need to remain uninformed about reality, that is your choice.

    You're stupid. Crime scene analysts can reconstruct a murder, but you think they would have to physically watch it happening in order to know.

    All the evidence supports evolution. There is no evidence for creation.
