Dawkins likes to con people into thinking he is open-minded about the existence of God by claiming he would change his mind if only someone could provide him some evidence. With that in mind, notice this bit of irony from Tweety Dawk:
I have actually read a tweet by somebody who thinks a monkey needs to give birth to a human in order to demonstrate evolution. Seriously!

Richard doesn’t seem to understand that this creationist is showing the world he is just as open-minded as he is. That is, the creationist too would change his mind if only someone could supply him with the evidence of evolution.
The “evidence” the creationist needs to accept evolution is some sensational, extraordinary observation that would make it impossible to deny the relatedness of monkeys and humans. The “evidence” Dawkins needs is some sensational, extraordinary observation that would make it impossible to deny the existence of God.
Those of us who understand evolution know that the truth of evolution does not mean we should be able to witness a monkey giving birth to a human being. Those of us who understand Christianity know the truth of Christianity does not mean Dawkins should be able to witness a miraculous display of divine power in the lab.
Both the creationist and Dawkins share the very same thinking patterns. They claim that they would be convinced X was true if only they could witness something that does not follow from the truth of X. Funny how that works. Tweety Dawk doesn’t seem to understand that when he scoffs at this creationist, he is scoffing at the very logic that holds up his own god-of-the-gaps atheism.
