Richard Dawkins Examines Afterlife, But, Fails to Answer the Basic Issue of Consolation

Written and collected by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times

Belief in life after death is not only restoring order in our present life, by belief in accountability, but, is the main source of consolation in face of death and suffering on our planet earth. It gives us hope of meeting our dying and deceased loved ones again.

Richard Dawkins in this video, Richard Dawkins – Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life, fails to answer these basic questions and makes this video into a basic education about rituals around death in different religions, genetics and DNA.

In a manner of speaking, he has himself unknowingly exposed the bankruptcy of atheism, in giving us a wholesome and time tested way of life.
