Dawkinsland

Some people say countries should stay the same. I don’t. Can you find Prussia on a map now? Or Yugoslavia?

So let’s form a new country. And call it Dawkinsland.

The creation of Dawkinsland will not please everyone. But it’s the right thing to do. Those currently living in the area where the new state of Dawkinsland will be formed will only be allowed to live in Dawkinsland if they agree to give up their theistic beliefs. If they don’t they will have to leave. But this shouldn’t be a problem. These people will have plenty of options open to them and could choose to go to countries like the US, Iran or even Saudi Arabia.

The nation of Dawkinsland will be a fine place to live. The military budget will be set at zero. Zilch. All weapons will be strictly prohibited: no guns, rocket launchers, bombs, tanks, military aircraft, and any other crap like that.

Thesism will be entirely abolished. For far too long now the inhabitants have lived by doctrines which pronounce “Thou shall not kill” but have blatantly ignored them and gone on to kill, bomb and generally slaughter each other mercilessly. They are therefore guilty on all charges of hypocrisy levelled against them! They can have no complaints.

In Dawkinsland children who previously were taught to hate each other will have to mix. They will go to the same schools and learn the same things. They will go out in groups to dismantle the old places of worship. They will have to study history – and learn about how many people have been murdered because of a God that may not exist.

Free enterprise will be promoted. People will be encouraged to debate – and to learn that differences are okay and that you don’t have to kill the other person just because they disagree with you.

I could go on but I won’t. I think you get my drift. Dawkinsland will be a fine place to live, I’m sure of that.

I hope you agree with me.

Bang!!!!!!! Boom! Crash! Arggggggg!

But a lot of people don’t.

I'd sign up for a passport, but you have to promise me you won't let in any agnostics first. Damned wafflers need to make up their minds which side they're on already!
