Dawkins Defanged

Are the arguments of atheist high priest Richard Dawkins worth spending time on? Not particularly. Should you yet feel compelled, David Quinn's debate with him on Irish radio has been making the rounds (download the Oct. 9th show here). Thanks to Ryan Anderson for the link.

The program starts at 7:57, Quinn arrives at 14:06. Good luck keeping track of all those accents

Even worse for Dawkins' position than exposure to Quinn however is plain sociology, which lately hasn't been able to provide much data to support the idea that evolution is destined to leave religion behind. Peter Berger has more on audio.

Highligh quote: "Max Weber is alive and well and llving in Guatelmala."
