RE: Higgs v Dawkins
It really pisses me off when people criticize Dawkins for saying the truth about religion. "Don't criticize them!" "It makes them happy!" "That's scientism!" "Why do you care about their beliefs?"

Most of the intellectual community keeps trying to appease the faitheads. Their relativistic view of the concept of "truth" makes me question their honesty. I see it as a fundamental treachery to intellectual honesty. Some opinions are simply not reasonable and should not get respect. Pretending that all the religious dogmas are respectable for "convenient" reasons... What was the name for that? Oh yeah, Hypocrisy.

This reminds me of the story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". Everyone pretends that the emperor is dressed up with marvelous clothes. Meanwhile, everyone knows that the "clothes" are not just common, they are not there.
