The 1/49th Door

Debating the Archbishop of Canterbury in Oxford on Feb. 23, Richard Dawkins -- our most famous atheist now that Christopher Hitchens has passed or ceased -- surprised the audience by keeping the heavenly door open the crackest of cracks:
[T]he evolutionary biologist [said] that he was "6.9 out of seven" certain of his long-standing atheist beliefs.

Replying to moderator Anthony Kenny, a noted English philosopher, Dawkins said, "I think the probability of a supernatural creator existing (is) very, very low."

If you haven't seen the Douglas Wilson Christopher Hitchens documentary, the last few moments anyway, you really should. It encapsulates why Christians respected the late Christopher Hitchens and why this admission on Dawkins part is a real shocker.

It is here.
