[Bill Maher with porn star Lexxi Tyler; increasing scientific knowledge?]
The Richard Dawkins Award is given every year by the Atheist Alliance International to honor an outstanding atheist whose contributions raise public awareness of the nontheist life stance; who through writings, media, the arts, film, and/or the stage advocates increased scientific knowledge; who through work or by example teaches acceptance of the nontheist philosophy; and whose public posture mirrors the uncompromising nontheist life stance of Dr. Richard Dawkins.
At the 2009 AAI Convention , the award will be given to Bill Maher, a well know whore monger.
I am not attempting to denigrate in any way all of the esteemed scientists and intellectuals who I am certain will be attending this great convention for the transformation of society into one that supports and respects a worldview based on the values of reason, empiricism and naturalism. I guess porn could be called naturalism - or is that naturism? Who the heck knows; whatever.
Interestingly, of 27 speakers at the conference, only four are scientists, probably the most eminent of whom is Lawrence M. Krauss, best known for writing The Physics of Star Trek. I guess the rest of the scientific world couldn't make it.
I would just be curious to know, if Maher is an outstanding atheist, what are the average ones like? Are they the ones who don't succeed in dating porn stars but just buy DVDs?
