<  >  naar bron What Use is Religion?


bron artikel As a Darwinian, the aspect of religion that catches my attention is its profligate wastefulness, its extravagant display of baroque uselessness. Nature is a miserly accountant, grudging the pennies, watching the clock, punishing the smallest waste. If a wild animal habitually performs some useless activity, natural selection will favor rival individuals who instead devote time to surviving and reproducing. Nature cannot afford frivolous jeux desprits. Ruthless utilitarianism trumps, even if it doesn’t always seem that way...

Richard Dawkins’s most recent book is A Devil’s Chaplain: Reflections on Hope, Lies, Science, and Love. He is the Charles Simonyi Professor of Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University.

Dawkins was wrong 
This is neither a religious nor a ‘Gouldian’ objection. All the conclusions of The Selfish Gene are accepted other than one: the method by which we can overcome the tyranny of our selfish replicators. If you’ve heard these arguments before, please direct us to where. If not, please tell us what’s wrong with them.
