Richard Dawkins in a “You Ask The Questions” Interview in the Independent

He has an answer to everything this clever Mr Dawkins. I liked both this question and Dawkin’s answer: 

Should men submit to their selfish genes, dump their wives and go for younger, blonder models? CAROLYN SANCHEZ, Manchester
No. We gave up submitting to our selfish genes long ago, when we took up clothes, contraceptives, sonnets, cubism, astronomy, snooker, bungee-jumping and other things that our selfish genes would at best consider a waste of time. Scientific facts about the world do not translate into moral ” shoulds”
