Professor Dawkins fails to scintillate

Professor Richard Dawkins

Cardinal Pell of Sydney, Australia and Professor Richard Dawkins, who has won worldwide fame as a champion of atheism even though he considers himself more of an agnostic, recently engaged in debate on Australian TV.   Though neither debater covered himself with glory, Dr. Dawkins' uninspired performance, as well as the great gaps in his knowledge, even in areas about which he claims expertise, were striking.  Perhaps the bar for world acclaim is set a bit lower for atheists, even if they are actually quondam atheists.  The estimable Dr. Oddie has more here.
