Is Richard Dawkins Related to Emma Watson?
That’s the title of a thread I stumbled upon in The Emma Watson forums with this picture:
Compare it to a picture of Emma Watson (which I went ahead and nabbed from the banner of the forum):
Hell, when I met Richard Dawkins the first thing to run through my head was not “he looks a lot like Emma Watson” but “he looks shorter in person” and he doesn’t look like that in my recollection but… they do look pretty similar in that picture. That’s creepy, dudettes and dudes!
So, I sent a link to the thread to my theistic evolutionist friend and we both had a good giggle. But guess what? My theistic evolutionist friend was more of a skeptic than I was! Like that nagging feeling in the back of my head had told me, that’s not what Richard Dawkins actually looks like:
See the difference? My theistic evolutionist friend pointed out that it seems that somebody took an image of Emma Watson and superimposed it on teh Dawk. I really have no idea why anybody would do that but it’s still pretty amusing.
Now that I’ve done all this, I’m not quite sure how it relates to skepticism other than…
- Deeper investigations are necessary more often than you’d think and…
- Theists can be good skeptics too.
Damn, street lamps seem to relate to skepticism more than Richard Dawkins does.
