$50,000 for anyone who can save Dawkins!

Atheist fundamentalist and evolution crackpot Richard Dawkins is adding spellchecking to his resume.

Dawkins has released a video of himself hilariously mocking Ray Comfort. Comfort, who Dawkins refers to as 'the banana man', is an evangelist who happens to disagree with the supernatural myth of evolution.

In his side splitting video, Dawkins points out that Comfort spelleded the word 'thought' as 'thort'. Well worthy of making a special video for I think you'll agree.

Comfort previously offered Dawkins $10,000 to debate with him, but Dawkins said he would only do it for $100,000. Comfort upped his offer to $20,000 but this was still not enough to tempt Dawkins. Dawkins is notorious for refusing to debate anyone who disagrees with him, having recently ran away from William Lane Craig.

This departure into the world of spellchecking is bound to surprise many, as Dawkins should currently be preoccupied desperately hoping that someone will solve the origins puzzle that he is promoting on his website. Anyone who can save his blushes stands to scoop $50,000!

Following on from his expertise at spelling, bosses at Channel 4 are hoping to tempt Dawkins as the new host of Countdown, although this currently looks doubtful with him training for Dancing on Ice in 2012
