Richard Dawkins and Trans

Richard Dawkins and Trans

This is a first. I've never said this before: "I agree with Richard Dawkins."

Now, before you think I've left the faith, let me explain. I agree with the famed Biologist and Atheist regarding something he recently said in an interview with Piers Morgan on British TV.  Dawkins said:

"There are two sexes, and that's all there is to it ... I mean, it’s incontrovertible. There’s no scientific doubt about this."

Needless to say, this has caused quite a backlash from progressive trans-affirming religionists. Such truth-based, biologically-rooted binary assertions don't mix well with spongy feelings (which are the new "facts").

As a case in point, two years ago Dawkins stole my thunder by tweeting about the inconsistency between identifying as a different race and identifying as a different gender. Here's the tweet:

Canceled for Common Sense?

Dawkins observation is not controversial – it's common sense. And, to his credit, he asks for a discussion on his observation. Unfortunately, he didn't get a discussion, but a censure. For his tweet, Dawkins was stripped of the American Humanist Association's Humanist of the Year award! Yet, what he said is simply a biological truth. If a person cannot identify as a different race, how can they identify as a different gender?

In the Piers Morgan interview, Dawkins went on to state:

"We’ve seen the way J.K. Rowling has been bullied ... it’s very upsetting the way this tiny minority of people has managed to capture the discourse and really talk errant nonsense."

If you haven't read, J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter author) has been one of the few courageous voices to consistently make the point that Trans-affirming ideology is antithetical to women's value and rights. Yet with each passing day, another media source celebrates biological men who claim to be women ... who subsequently steal an honor that should go to a biological woman.


A clear example happened last week: ESPN honored NCAA Swimming champion William "Lia" Thomas, a biological man who identifies as a woman, during their tribute to Women's History Month.  I couldn't find the tribute on ESPN's site (they've scrubbed it?), but it's been captured by Megyn Kelly here.

It's really hard to imagine where our culture goes next. We already live in a deeply delusional society. This is the consequence for rejecting God as Creator and Authority.

Ok, enough news about our broken and rebellious world. Next post is good news!
