  1. The point of a ‘representative democracy’ is that it shouldn’t require referenda on EU membership, education, energy, or any other issue.

    Scientists like Richard Dawkins don’t “dictate” the truth about the natural world and its origins, they *present evidence* about such things. In the case of evolution by natural selection, the evidence is overwhelming from a rational perspective. Dawkins sets the evidence out very clearly in his book “The Greatest Show on Earth”.

    The difference between Christian fundamentalism and Dawkins’ presentation of atheism is that the former is based on the arbitrary elevation of the status of a specific collection of books to some sort of inerrancy, whereas the latter is based on argument which is open to rational debate.
