I am afraid I agree with Mr.Tyson. My guess is that our dear friend Mr. Dawkins appears to be more of a religious fundamentalist than a neutral empirical explorer of the human psyche. I would suggest to Dawkins that his fundamentalist point of view probably comes from an underlying fear of "no God equals no meaning." He desperately wants meaning, and one he can be sure of. The world is a quite uncertain place, and fundamentalists of all kinds need to find some degree of certainty. Atheism gives his live the meaning and the certainty he is so desperate for. I would suggest to him that he can find out empirically that love needs no God, no atheism, no human rationale. I suspect Tyson understands this.
