Richard Dawkins: "Not to know the King James Bible is to be in some small way barbarian"
He then says the Bible 'doesn't have to be tied to religion... It's important that religion shouldn't be allowed to hijack this cultural resource'.
Ignore completely, of course, its fons et origo - millennia of Jewish and Christian revelation and inspiration.
One wonders how Professor Dawkins (who, incidentally, never had the courtesy to respond to His Grace other than with ad hominem insult) might feel about the assertion that evolutionary biology doesn't have to be tied to Atheism. It is, after all, very important that Atheism shouldn't be allowed to hijack science.
