FLASH! Richard Dawkins was stunned this Halloween when William Lane Craig showed up at his door dressed as a rational argument.
Dawkins complained of dizziness and shortness of breath and was taken to hospital for observation. A hospital spokesperson said that Dawkins was “evolving nicely” from his encounter. “It’s ‘survival of the fittest’, you know. We can see that Dawkins is pretty fit.”
Dawkins has a previous history of being allergic to logic and has had adverse reactions to cogent, well-formed arguments which have caused him to stammer and ramble on incoherently. He has suffered frequent bouts of writers delusion, which manifested themselves in 1976, 1986, 2006, 2009, 2011 with his literary publications. “Publication is one of the treatments for severe cases of reality disconnect,” said a highly trained source who wished to remain anonymous.
For his part, Dr. Craig remained calm and even-keeled during Dawkin’s emotional crisis. “Dr. Dawkins was at first befuddled when he saw my costume”, Craig explained. “He clearly didn’t know what it was. When I explained it to him, he became wide-eyed and pale. It was like he’d see a ghost or something. He then just handed me his bag of chocolates before he rang for help.” After reflecting on the event, Craig said, “I got a lot of candy dressed like this. Next year should be even better. I’m going as The Kalam Cosmological Argument. Don’t tell Krauss!”
This was satire.
