ARCHBISHOP TAKES ON ATHEIST DAWKINS

The Archbishop of Canterbury and atheist Professor Richard Dawkins are set to go head to head to discuss man's greatest question.

The Archbishop of Canterbury and atheist Professor Richard Dawkins are set to go head to head to discuss man's greatest question.

The leader of the Church of England, Dr Rowan Williams, will meet Britain's most famous non-believer to take on the complex subject of "The nature of human beings and the question of their ultimate origin".

The discussion, which organisers expect to be "invigorating and enlivening", is fully booked but will be streamed live online on February 23.
