NOTE: This is a re-post from an earlier OP that was lost due to the recent crash of the host server for our blog. Since I didn’t keep a copy, this is a close reconstruction from memory as to what I originally wrote and the point I wanted to make. I believe Teleologist still has the orginal comments to this OP and will add them back in.
In his latest screed against religion and theism, The God Delusion, atheist crusader Richard Dawkins puts his full animosity towards religion in general and Christianity in particular on full display. In the second chapter, after spending several pages explaining while the late Stephen Gould’s concept of Non-Overlapping Magisterium (NOMA) was wrong and explaining why any concept of God ought to be just as subject to the methods of scientific investigation as anything else, Dawkins makes a rather startling declaration.
