I don’t pay much attention to big name atheist. I’m just not interested, except for when they do something stupid. Richard Dawkins did something stupid.
Dawkins did not dispute that Mohamed should not have been arrested, but questioned whether the boy had truly “invented” the clock, as has been reported. He tweeted : “If this is true, what was his motive? Whether or not he wanted the police to arrest him, they shouldn’t have done so[.]”

Who actually thought that Ahmed Mohamed invented anything? We all winked, thought it was cute and then dismissed it with a good laugh while shaking our heads and saying, “Kids.” We’ve all been there. I invented a paper airplane back in middle school. The school even allowed me to patent it. Of course Ahmed did not invent anything, but who needs to point that out? Only the idiots among us it seems.
