[LINK] Telegraph: Dawkins distantly descended from slave traders

The Telegraph really has jumped the shark.

I’d scarcely had time to re-open my lecture notes when he rang back: “Darwinian natural selection has a lot to do with genes, do you agree?” Of course I agreed. “Well, some people might suggest that you could have inherited a gene for supporting slavery from Henry Dawkins.”

Astonishing. Simply astonishing.
