Happy 70th birthday, Richard Dawkins!

…And many thanks for all you’ve done to popularize science and reason — and pee in the cornflakes of benighted, anti-science fundamentalist clods! (It’s nice to know we’re now on your radar as well, he added modestly.)

    He is damn attractive for a 70-year-old man…I can't help it, I'm a grave robber…

    I hope to se Dawkins on the show someday!

    Wow 70! This must make R.D the grandfather of atheism of our time.I don't see a good reason to have Dawkins on the show unless to just say, 'hi' but I sure want to see more theist callers, especially famous ones and ones that think they got a good case for god.

    I would not have guessed that he is 70. I'm with Aridawn, Richard Dawkins is a good looking guy.

    I was checking up on a suspicion and it appears that not only is Dawkins a year older than Daniel Dennett, He's almost exactly a year older since Dennett's birthday is on March 28th. So I extend my well wishes to both gentlemen (Hitch is up in 2 weeks, on April 12th.)

    A reminder that we need some younger people in the pipeline. A good sign is that the largest growth in non-bullshit eaters is among younger people. The real challenge is to keep them from reverting when it comes time to worry about jobs and families.

    I would have never guessed 70. The guy looks good for his age.
