Must-follow: Hilarious Richard Dawkins parody account exposes his prejudices with humor

@RICHARDDAWKINS uses "logic and reason" to ask about "Breaking Bad" and unicycles

Richard Dawkins is one of the most outspoken atheists in the public sphere -- and often crosses the line into outright prejudice against the religious, particularly Muslims. That's when he's not defending "mild pedophilia."

And a very funny Twitter account is exposing just how sloppy Dawkins' thinking is, by tossing his arguments into the sloppily spelled argot familiar from "Weird Twitter." Anti-Muslim and -Christian arguments are goofily distorted with misspellings, topical jokes and the very real sense of misplaced outrage that underpins Dawkins' work. You'll either get the appeal or you won't at all -- much like Dawkins' work, in that way!
