Acclaimed Atheist Richard Dawkins Blocked This User For Asking A Tough Question

Richard Dawkins is probably the world's best-known atheist. His anti-religious views have gained him millions of fans, but his unapologetic disdain for the faithful has made him a polarizing figure.

In books like The God Delusion, Dawkins paints believers in a less than flattering light, claiming they are more interested in superstition than reason. But now it seems Dawkins is the one who is being unreasonable. Rather than answering a simple question on Twitter, the so-called "champion of logic" blocked a user who challenged his beliefs.

See for yourself.

It's one thing to disagree with someone. But it's quite another to silence them for asking a question you don't like. How can Dawkins claim the moral high ground when his actions are no better than the religious leaders he decries?

What do you think? Is Dawkins being a hypocrite? Sound off in the comment section below.
