For World's Sake Stop Worshipping Reason

and the virtues of "rational" thought,
Professor Dawkins,
rather than practising it.
Non-transcendental atheism* is no better than doctrinal religion -
indeed it is a kind of doctrine. Doctrines are never rational
and cause immense distress.

The virtue of augury, for example,
lies in its sheer
randomness ...

* e.g. anti-doctrinal Zen

Well the animal defined it so it must have some ability for or inkling of rational thought.
