Dawkins stupidity at its nadir

Dawkins is a misprogrammed idiot whose success with The Selfish Gene turned him into a prophet of darwinian pseudo-science.
He doesn’t quite spell out his confusion. We can consider the logic:

Since religion is evil in Dawkins’ mind any change in humans due to religion is a problem. We should let man ‘evolve’ without religion? It is hard to see how anyone could end up in this cul-de-sac.
First, Dawkins’ idea of evolution, natural selection, is wrong, so the whole discussion simply skids into oblivion.
Second, Christianity as an example rescued ancient man from a social nightmare, e.g. the Roman mentality at its low point in the Roman games. The religious continuation brought man out of slavery and the depravity of gladiator civilization. How does Mr. Dawkins figure evolution here? Just let the Roman empire continue until burn out? Clearly religion had a effect of ‘salvation’ here. And it might have had a genetic effect over time…

There are more issues here, but that is enough…
