Richard Dawkins is a Freemason

I recently read a post on another formum where a member accused Richard Dawkins of being a Freemason and therefor a Priest of Baal. (Dawkins is ‘n Vrymesselaar en dus 'n Baälpriester...)

This was in support of the statement, in the same post, that Evolution and Natural Selection is a false ideological religion that has never been proven scientifically.

I don't normally take much note of ad hominem attacks, but this one is the most ignorant I have ever heard.

Anyone with a bit of knowledge about Freemasonry or access to the Internet or a library, knows that a prerequisite for entry into the fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons, is a belief in God (or at least a supreme being - GAOTU).

The Apprentice enters the lodge blindfolded. He is made to kneel and the tip of a dagger is placed against his heart. He is then asked the following question: "In times of trouble; in who do you put your trust?"

I give you one guess what would happen if you don't answer: "In God"! I seriously doubt if they would actually go though with it today, but I can only image what the dagger was used for a few centuries ago.

The question remains: How can an Atheist become and remain a Freemason; and an international celebrity who has written bestselling books on Atheism, like Richard Dawkins, no less?

I don't know all that much about biology and the like, but since when is an ethnic group classified as a seperate species?
I wonder who will be more offended by statements like that - Dawkins himself or the freemasons?

Those poor freemasons. What did they do to deserve this?

My guess is the Afrikaners - I mean, now suddenly of an altogether different species and all.
