Did I fail to mention that most people would consider me an Atheist in the same way Dawkins is an Atheist. Technically I am agnostic towards God, fairies and orbiting tea pots. These things might exist but I doubt there is empirical evidence any of them.

No? Those ancient scribes were dreaming....right?
Where Dawkins and I are different is that I embrace Gould's NOMA. I consider philosophical questions distinct and separate from scientific ones. Philosophy is about searching for Truth (capital "T"). Science is about determining useful knowledge.
I believe the Oracle of Delphi was both accurate and prophetic with the proclamation that no one is wiser than Socrates.
I don't know the Truth, do you?
While the search for Truth is important, I generally find it more enjoyable, and fruitful, to discuss science. At Telic Thoughts, I have a habit of suggesting...
Let's do Science!
See my response to creeky belly for that.
