When it comes to separation of church and state issues and promoting reason over religious dogma, the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science's new website, Innovating for a secular world, promises to deliver a powerful punch for activists and those interested in learning more about the issues.
Is there an upcoming "powerful punch" by Richard Dawkins or an upcoming weak and powerless tap on the shoulder which creationists and Christendom will barely notice?
If you look at our article Evidently, many UK citizens and members of the global community find Richard Dawkins to be a dreadful bore, you may come to the conclusion that it will be a weak and impotent "punch". In the last two years for example the website richarddawkins.net has seen a decline in global market share according to the web traffic tracking company Alexa.
It is worth noting that Richard Dawkins gave his "atheist blessing" to the Brights Movement and the website The Brights' Net is a very weak website. See: Internet atheism - The thrill is gone!
Here are some recent graphs we recently published:

As can be seen above, according to Alexa.com the global market share of Richarddawkins.net has fallen. Evidently, not only do many in the UK find Richard Dawkins to be an abrasive and colossal bore, but many in the world do as well!

Is Richard Dawkins a paper tiger?
The question "Is Richard Dawkins a paper tiger may seem an odd question to some atheists.
However, consider this pertinent information:
New Atheism is a new form of militant atheism which started in the period between 2004 and 2007. The New Atheism movement has not had much of an impact in terms of gaining new adherents to atheism. In a March 10, 2008 USA Today article Stephen Prothero wrote:
Numbers lie, but they also tell tales untrustworthy and otherwise. So the key question stirring around the much discussed U.S Religious Landscape Survey released in late February by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life is what tale does it state about the state of the union.
For some, the story of this survey, based on interviews in multiple languages with more than 35,000 adults, is the strength of American Religion.
