Alright I know how much you all love Richard Dawkins so much as I do and truly care for his salvation but I was sort of surprised by what he said. He also retracted his claim that Jesus never existed as well:

Wow. I think this is kind of important on the basis of such a popular atheist and if he does go the way of Anthony Flew might plant a few seeds in the atheists that follow him.

Look forward to seeing The God Delusion taken off the shelves in a few years.

We probably could see this coming in Hitchen's "hidden camera" conversation where he said that they all agree that the fine-tuning argument is plausible and intriguing even for them.

He claimed that?
 
Thought he was at least savvy enough not to get mixed up in mythers.

Wow. Good to hear.  :angel:

That'd be something, if he got baptized someday, huh?  ;D

Hopefully not in the same way that Hitchens was Chrismated.   ;)

You really should see how popular the myth theory is these days.

Dawkins is one of those special kinds of atheists that parallels the Evangelicals who believe Obama was born in Kenya and is a Satan-worshiping Muslim who has tea once a week with Osama's ghost.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

Obama using that KenyanKeynsian economics, of course he is from Kenya.

Dawkins needs to be more rude to have the damage of a cotton ball against religion.

Good find! Thanks for posting. I want to watch the debate now.

Wow agreed.

I always knew the Dawkins and Hitchens crowd was just the immature pouting like a middle school punk band..  These guys are WAY too intelligent to believe half the things they say, it was just a matter of time before reality set in..
