Here is a conversation that took place recently between the Archbishop of Canterbury, Sir Anthony Kennedy and the world’s most famous atheist Richard Dawkins.
There was surprise when Prof Richard 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.
This verse in Romans tells us why Dawkins is only 6.9 out of 7 sure. The Bible says that all people know that God exist; they just suppress the truth. The world’s most famous atheist suppresses it 6.9 out of 7, and we can see that he is struggling.
Romans1.18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
