Famed atheist Richard Dawkins suffered a “minor stroke” last Saturday, which forced the 74-year-old to nix a tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Management for the outspoken biology professor and author of “The God Delusion” indicated Dawkins is recuperating at home in the United Kingdom, the Guardian reported.
While some believers in prayer posted on social media that they are, indeed, getting on their knees on behalf of Dawkins and his recovery, others — presumably atheists — had much different messages. Check out the opposing reactions:
Praying for @RichardDawkins' quick recovery after having suffered a minor stroke in the UK ahead of his Aus/NZ tour.

Wishing (not praying) @RichardDawkins a speedy recovery. Hope to see you in Oz soon!
