Alister McGrath on Richard Dawkins on the Religion Report

I reported in another blog about attending a huge gathering of evangelicals at the end of September to hear Alister McGrath speak on Richard Dawkin's "The God Delusion". If you weren't there (and I know you were not because I didn't see you) you can still catch a sense of the effortless assurance with with McGrath tackles Dawkins in this episode of the Stephen Crittenden Show. Transcript and MP3 available.

Hi, Im from Kyneton.

I find McGrath to be completely wooden and as convincing as a wooden doll.
Please check out these related references on the relation between scientism and exoteric religiosity.

1. www.dabase.org/christmc2.htm
2. www.dabase.org/ilchurst.htm
3. www.dabase.org/noface.htm
4. www.dabase.org/dualsens.htm
5. www.dabase.org/rgcbpobk.htm
6. www.realgod.org
7. www.adidam.org/download/Religion%20and%20Science.pdf

Altogether the author points out that to ask the question "does god exist", or to try to prove that god exists, is, in effect, to affirm the negative proposition that Real God does not exist.

Christ=mc²? John from Kyneton, I think you would enjoy Pullman's "His Dark Materials" series. All that experimental theology would touch a chord in you, I think...
