Richard Dawkins Reads His Lovely “Fan Mail” With Some Reef Eye Candy

Love Letters to Richard Dawkins

April 11th, 2014 – In a candid moment, filmmaker Eric Preston, founder and producer at Fusion Films, rolls his camera as Dr. Richard Dawkins – Author, Professor and Evolutionary Biologist – again reads “fan mail” he has received from some of his not-so-great admirers. (Parental Discretion is Advised!)

 What a wicked sense of humor this man has. 73-year-old Evolutionary Biologist, author and self-proclamed atheist, Richard Dawkins, receives scads of “fan mail”, and as you can imagine, a great deal comes in the form of hate-spiked, anti-gay rantings from religious zealots clearly unhappy with the man.  Hilariously, Dawkins sits down (in front of a healthy, robust reef that I admit I was fixated on) with filmmaker Eric Preston to read some of these poorly constructed, profanity-laced works in a piece titled “Love Letters to Richard Dawkins”. So what can you expect? Glorious blurbs as such: 

“I’m sick of hearing about you and your theory of evolution. You may have evolved from ‘munk-eyes’, but leave me out of it… by the way, I do hope you get sodomized by satanic ‘munk-eyes’ in hell.” “You suck, stupid atheist scum… you accept every single fact of science without ever questioning it – because you’re GAY!” “Hello, Dawkins, well done – you made a fortune on your !#@#ing book – now you’re gonna burn forever, bastard”

  Dawkins recites these loving notes, wishing him death by rabies or flame-thrower accident, ever so eloquently with a smile on his face, sometimes just cracking into laughter at the sheer idiocy. Regardless of your beliefs, this is beyond amusing – enjoy!
