No "one" created life...There is no all powerful deity or creator. Life arose spontaneously, as Mr. Dawkins would affirm.

I've never seen Dawkins lose these so-called debates unless they are heavily and Selectively quote-minded or mis-quoted
...


hmmm..now come on who tallied up the 'chits' after debates???? Or was the evidence some kind of galvanic skin response or iphone app on brain waves???...just want to make sure the tallying is 'scientifically' done!


And you know really come to think of it what are the points of those 'debates'? I think they are, at bottom, discussions veering completely away from the essential matter at hand....getting proofs on the existence or non-existence of God, the master of the whole universe. Debates from the looks of it are none other than showcasing the argumentative and intellectual power of the participants. I know it's probably flattering to 'win' in the court of opinion but it's like a little philosophical 'fix' where one gets the intellectual high but nevertheless the 'win' cannot intellectually obliterate an opponents' arguments. The scouring of minds on the subject of God can never be cleansed. Why? Because rust and God never sleep. So a 'win' in these kinds of debates is really illusory......both Rich and the Archbishop always 'win a little and lose a little'. Hey and that's like life!

Things we'd like to see: Richie running around the world. the modern day Archimedes in God-Science shouting, 'Eureka! Eureka! I have the proof! I have the proof!'. Now really that would truly be vindication I'll hand him that!

You believe in the one that can't make that happen or even create life and I'll believe in the One that created life.

I wonder if Vizio is still combing YouTube's bowels for some clip of Dawkins being out-debated by a religionist...?
