Richard Dawkins debates Wendy Wright and her creationist beliefs.
Richard Dawkins FRS FRSL is a British evolutionary biologist and author. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford and was Professor for Public Understanding of Science in the University of Oxford from 1995 to 2008. An atheist, he is well known for his criticism of creationism and intelligent design.
Wendy Wright does not believe in evolution. Richard Dawkins attempts to belittle those who would believe as Wendy Wright does. Dawkins at several points in the debate attempts to point out that many Bishops believe in evolution and that God made the world in this way. While this could potentially be the case, evolution is not the point in the argument where one would begin to ask the question "Why are we here?" Dawkins has come way late into the game. Why not start with the big bang theory, or why one would think the universe has just existed forever, with no beginning or end?
Richard Dawkins is a militant atheist who seeks with much fervor to impose his beliefs on to others, seems utterly incredulous to the idea of God, and generally believes he has all the answers. Although science has provided many answers and is quite a useful tool, it has no answers as to the beginning of life, what happens after death, and a great deal of other major questions. However, I would take the view that science itself is coming closer all the time to proving the existence of other dimensions, and even God Himself. Theoretical Physics is a far more interesting topic, which could hold far more/deeper/interesting clues as to the origins of human beings.
Richard Dawkins is stuck in/on the Earth level of this debate, when a much larger question remains, which is "How did life begin?". I'm speaking of something closer to the big bang theory. The latest of which is the "Multiverse" theory, where there are universes out there that exist to infinity. These universes crash into each other over eons of time and create new universes.
Unfortunately, this theory does not answer the question either, as the same question "How did life begin?" can be asked in an infinite regress. In other words, there was a starting point somewhere. Whether or not we "evolved" from slime in the Earth, would not seem to be The argument to take up in the complete and utter opposition to the existence of a God. In my mind, the argument starts long before this point.
Atheists have a hard time accepting they really know much less than they imagine as they are not even specks on a piece of dust floating through an incomprehensibly sized universe. A human lifetime does not even register is this paradigm. The atheist's arrogance seemingly goes unrecognized.
Wendy knows what it is to suffer for her faith, she was sentenced, twice, to six months in jail for praying and declining to promise to not do it again. Her cases, based on freedom of religion and speech, were decided by the U.S. Supreme Court and several state courts.
