sigh...I'm still waiting for a successful interview with Dawkins. It just seems that when everything appears to be going well, it just blows up at the end. I fear the ABC may have blown is up by suggesting that poetic language is a way to "wriggle out of hard questions." You don't think Dawkins was already thinking that when you said it?
I thought the Archbishop did a splendid job of coping with Dawkins. I was very impressed. Scout
Well, Scout, you and I have found another thing to agree on. :)bb
I don't think we disagree on very much, BBScout
Was Rowan backing away from the idea of the virgin birth as a fact?
Sorry to have missed all these responses. It's been a while since I've been back in the blogosphere.I do agree with you BB and Scout, sort of.I am not doubting that he did a good job of handling him. I got to witness first hand a Christian scholar being eaten alive by Dawkins in a debate in Stuttgart Germany just last year. So in that way, I think the ABC did well.I just don't think he did a very good job of really digging in deep. And the comment on poetic language is just giving Dawkins a perfect opportunity to affirm what he already thought...that it's just a poetic jumble of gook that has no credibility.I guess what I am trying to say is that this 25 year old wants to see ol' Dawking squirm. He seems too confident that he is 100% right. I like him because I think he's quite kind about it, but I just want to see the man changed. Ok, I'm going to go catch my breath now. :)
