Oh this will make the angry atheists so very, very sad. Their patron saint has come to the conclusion that he can’t be sure God doesn’t exist, so he deems himself an agnostic rather than an atheist.
He told the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, that he preferred to call himself an agnostic rather than an atheist…. There was surprise when Prof Dawkins acknowledged that he was less than 100 per cent certain of his conviction that there is no creator. The philosopher Sir Anthony Kenny, who chaired the discussion, interjected: “Why don’t you call yourself an agnostic?” Prof Dawkins answered that he did. An incredulous Sir Anthony replied: “You are described as the world’s most famous atheist.” Prof Dawkins said that he was “6.9 out of seven” sure of his beliefs. “I think the probability of a supernatural creator existing is very very low,” he added.
Dawkins has grown! He’s left the dogmatic fundamentalism of his former ‘faith’ and embraced his own ignorance. So good for him.
