    Richard Dawkins is pathetic! All gods are self-contradictory. Thus, no god exists!

    Whats your point. “Dawkins should not call himself something he is not” Some of the blog sites have such pitiful the substance. Here is one where I wonder why the person bothers writing at all.

    I thought it was noteworthy that one of the world’s most well-known and militant atheists prefers the label agnostic to the label atheist. He further declares in the clip that he can neither disprove God’s existence nor be 100% sure that He doesn’t exist. I’m sure this would surprise many of the people who know Richard Dawkins. It certainly surprised the moderator.

      Um…have you read The God Delusion? He has that positivity test about how positive you are about God’s non-existence in it. 7 being the highest and 1 being the most delusional. He places himself as a 6. So he is very close to positive that God does not exist but not completely positive.

    He says as much on the video clip.

    The Telegraph article is newsworthy in the same sense that it would be newsworthy if it turned out that one of the apostles of Christ was sitting at a 6 on a 7-point scale of certainty about Christ’s resurrection. If you read their writings, it’s hard to take them as anything but 7’s.

      I don't think that's true at all. None of Christ's apostles had doubts? I'd rank Thomas and Philip at 3 and Peter at a 2 on that scale.
      Christ's apostles doubted him quite frequently according to the gospel accounts in Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. Peter denied Jesus three times!
      Thus, it would not be shocking if they had doubts about Christ's resurrection. It would be shocking if they had absolute confidence about it.

  5. Mike Gantt says:

    The New Testament documents were written by, and to, people who had come to a point of conviction about the resurrection of Christ. That they may have had doubts in the process of arriving at that conviction should be helpful to us in that it encourages us to similarly deal with, and thus dispense with, our doubts.
