Richard Dawkins

Welcome to the Richard Dawkins group

We're a community of people interested in the work of Richard Dawkins. We hope to create a comfy space to focus on Dawkins, science, atheism & religion.

We believe science & reason make the world a better, humane place. This is an open group so you can easily share posts. We hope you share/learn some interesting stuff.

Science is a powerful weapon against ignorance, superstition, suppression and arrogance.
