This is a real Richard Dawkins tweet

This is actually one of the only things Richard Dawkins is right about

why would this not be a real Dawkins tweet though. is it odd for famous people to express perfectly ordinary opinions in exactly the same way anyone else would?

I think it’s because you assume that Richard Dawkins is locked in perpetual battle with right-wing Christians accusing him of Satanism on one side and left-wing atheists accusing him of Islamophobia on the other.

Then you see this tweet about anime or whatever and mentally you read it with the same tone of voice that you read all his other tweets, and it clashes.

It’s like those Youtube comment threads where they start off talking about anime and end up in a screaming match about Balkan nationalism, but in reverse.
