Atheism makes sense! At least that is what atheist evangelist Richard Dawkins is campaigning for in this debate with Christian apologist John Lennox.
In the debate, Professor Dawkins continues his warpath against religion using his typical British banter. With rhetoric straight off the pages of his New York Times’ best seller The God Delusion, Dawkins claims, “Science supports atheism, not Christianity!”
In comes John Lennox to dispel Dawkins’ discourse. With his matchless logic and rationale, Lennox asserts that “it is the very nature of science that leads me to a belief in God.”
Christians will find themselves applauding as Lennox puts Dawkins on the defense on the issues of science and religion. You’ll be strengthened in your faith with answers to some of Christianity’s toughest questions.
Dawkins, voted by Europe’s Prospect Magazine as one of the world’s most important intellectuals, is regarded by many as the spokesman for the “New Atheism.” BBC has labeled him “Darwin’s Rottweiler.” He has written numerous best sellers, most notable among them, his recent book The God Delusion, which has been on The New York Times List of Best Sellers for over thirty weeks. It is a no-holds-barred assault on religious faith generally, and Christianity specifically. According to Dawkins, one can deduce atheism from scientific study; indeed, he argues that it is the only viable choice.
Lennox, a popular Christian apologist and scientist, travels widely speaking on the interface between science and religion. Like Dawkins, he has dedicated his career to science, but he has arrived at very different conclusions. Lennox possesses doctorates from Oxford, Cambridge, and the University of Wales. He has written a response to the notion that science has exposed the Bible as obscurantist in a book titled God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? The book was published this fall.
