Dawkins deliverance

I read with interest your comment concerning Richard Dawkins on page 1 of a recent ET : ‘Even Richard Dawkins’ efforts to ridicule God have backfired — leading even fair-minded atheists to reject his simplistic arguments’. I was one of those who rejected his ideas — a lapsed Anglican calling myself an atheist, though in reality probably an agnostic.

Can science get rid of God?

During the past 40 years this question has permeated Western thinking. It is persistently raised by thoughtful unbelievers - most recently by the broadcaster John Humphrys.
