I thought this was pretty interesting. I don't know if he's said anything like this before, but it seems odd, because I've heard him say that he was an atheist before.

That is the usual progression of an atheist when he realizes that he cannot, in reality, live as an atheist. When backed in to the corner, and lacking the ability to come up with ALL materialistic answers, they will default to the "I don't know" defense (argument from ignorance).

You know what Ron, I've got a theory. It has taken him a few decades to go from 7.0 to 6.9. Who knows....

...maybe he's slowly evolving into a believer? :rolleyes:

Great find :D


Its interesting that he talks about statistics of God being real... Yet has no evidence to base his assertions on... Wasn't it Dawkins who claimed that we shouldn't believe in something if we don't have evidence for it... Then where is his

i) evidence of God's non-existence
ii) evidence supporting his probability scale

That was not even close to personal attack.
But you may not bother, I'll remove myself from this forum.

Now I'm curious to hear what was said. However I don't see how insults and such will refute the claim that Dawkins contradicts himself by the very principles of evidence he asks of others. Honestly there are a plethora of articles written solely on the logical inconsistency of Richard Dawkins and what he claims in his books etc. I suggest reading a few will give you a more grounded view.

Kinda surprised but I shouldn't be. Dawkins seems powerful when he talks crap about the Christians until he debates 1 on 1. Then we realize he doesn't know as much as he likes to think he knows.

It really is quite surprising that he is a famous athiest when he spouts so many illogical veiwpoints and tends to use imaginary evidence. Every debate I have seen him in he has been crushed.

Could you share some links please :D The only one I saw was the panel discussion in Mexico where Prof Craig was also present. However this wasn't an actual debate, rather soundbite discussion points.
