Atheist Loses Religion Debate

07 Feb

imagesProminent atheist Professor Richard Dawkins was handily defeated by  Former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams in a  debate before an audience of students at the University of Cambridge. The vote was  324 to 136.

Andrew Copson laid  out the atheist position by stating that organized religion, any expression practiced as a group or corporate entity, has no place in the 21st century. All religion should be relegated to private adherence. He proposes that religion does more harm than good,has no place in society and  we humans would be better off without it. He further states that secularist are a better force for good in this world than religionists.

Before we allow ourselves to simply be dismissive to such talk, remember that atheism is on the rise in the U.S. and religion is in decline.  I kindly suggest giving a listen so that we will be better equipped to give an informed apologetic when confronted with this mounting opposition.

A quick side note for consideration…Many christians today live and advocate a  reverse position to Dawkins. They falsely  think and act as if  “biblical truth” [ie religion] is to relegated to  the public domain of corporate gatherings,  and that without application to their personal lives,thoughts,and behavior outside the walls of the entity of the  assembled group.

Both fallacies are undermining the force of Kingdom life today. Dawkins position is “Anti-Christ”, while the erroneous Christian position  is “anti-nomian”.

    Notice the dichotomy in Hawkins thinking, in one breath he states the absurdity of the great architect of the universe being concerned with us and our sins and later states, as he is describing the grandness of existence, that we are at the center of it all. I would have jumped all over that, right after I let Lydia smack the smile off the face of the woman behind him.
