Richard Dawkins, Church Bells, and Allahu Akbar
Richard Dawkins recently tweeted: “Listening to the lovely bells of Winchester, one of our great mediaeval cathedrals. So much nicer than the aggressive-sounding ‘Allahu Akhbar.’ Or is that just my cultural upbringing?”
While some have tried to find a deeper meaning in Dawkins’s tweet (e.g., a reflection on the power of human upbringing on our future preferences), a straightforward reading suggests that Dawkins simply prefers the sound of church bells to the sound of the Islamic call to prayer. Does this mean that Dawkins is a racist? A number of his readers say it does.
