Eminent scientist turned huffy, proselytizing sideshow, Richard Dawkins, has had his motives for taking to Twitter to heap shit on a fourteen year old boy questioned, with many believing that he knew exactly what he was doing and that it was a pre-meditated attack carried out purely for attention.
“Assembling a Twitter rant is fine. Making it look like it was done as part of some great crusade for truth and isn’t a famous 74 year old man picking on a boy is not fine. Which is true?” said the first villager we found in the Squirrel Lickers, Phil Evans.
“Yes, there are other reasons why the former Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science might take some hurtful comments out and pretend he made them for a valid reason. Trying to impress, for instance,” added pub landlord, Eddie.
Phil Evans agreed saying, “If the Tweets had something to say about truth and belief, that’s creative. If not, it looks like a hoax. He knew what he was doing and he’s done it for the press coverage. Probably hoping he’ll get to meet President Obama off the back of it. You know what these people are like.”
Richard Dawkins has 1.24 million Twitter followers.
