'I can't be sure God DOES NOT exist': World's most notorious atheist Richard Dawkins admits he is in fact agnostic
Professor Richard Dawkins today dismissed his hard-earned reputation as a militant atheist - admitting that he is actually agnostic as he can't prove God doesn't exist.

The country's foremost champion of the Darwinist evolution, who wrote The God Delusion, stunned audience members when he made the confession during a lively debate on the origins of the universe with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Professor Dawkins, the former Oxford Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, is a dedicated admirer of Charles Darwin, regarding the Victorian pioneer of evolution as the man who explained ‘everything we know about life’.

Atheism = Ultimate ignorance and Pride

At least Theists have legitimate reason to believe in a Higher Power with all the religious texts throughout the ages and man having a relationship with the Creator since the beginning of time.

Not to mention how life is held together in a delicate balance and brought forth in a way so mysterious even to baffle the world's top scientist.

A Seed makes a Tree. A Baby into a Human. Rain from the Heavens.

Christians are not moved by anyone that claims there is no God, nor are they moved from where they have stood when someone changes their channel of reason. It is good however, that he is reconsidering his "absolute" position of no God as being his reasoned truth, as he comes to the end of himself.

Many of the ones who pushed Atheism were really worshiping the devil behind closed doors.

They deceived the masses so they could carry out their agendas with less resistance. If you forsake God, it's easier for evil people to deceive and control you.

He didn't have that open mind until now though... it took him his whole life to come to that conclusion.

Reminds me of Einstein... he too was an atheist, and didn't he change his mind about the existence of God on his deathbed?

Yes, Einstein was J---sh... doesn't imply you even believe in God.

Science has already stated an absolute rule: You cannot get something from nothing, therefore how did it all start? It's illogical to believe "it" (creation/matter) has always existed, because of the law I just stated.

The Creator, whatever or whomever that is, I can only speculate, thus faith...I must however believe there to be a supernatural force that brought forth creation as we observe and interact with it...

Quantum physics further dictates there must be a creator, due to the complex organization of all of creation, and the fact that particles are "merely" bits of radiation and light that can transverse between dimensions, appearing and disappearing, or "popping in and out of reality"...Therefore "reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one" ~ Einstein

and then this silly heaven also in the clouds..

God is the creation would be another word in a sense.. but since God is MIND and thinking.. and everything that exists was and is made by MIND... the creation of the body or result of creating MIND.

Having an Icon is natural to us...We see the world in icons and think in icons, therefore making God into, well "Father Time" basically, is not harmful...

We do not pretend to know where He is or where heaven is, only that both exist...

The sky god model is a mockery and an insult frankly, and the creation of a weak mind...

 Quoting: BRIEF


First, 'Science' has never stated that rule. We've never observed 'nothing' or whether or not something can come from it.

If you are willing to believe that a 'Creator' simply always existed for no reason or cause, then why not a simple primal universe? Isn't that less complicated than an omnipotent, intelligent entity?
