On Easter Monday night Q & A will host a two-man debate between Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell and outspoken, British atheist Richard Dawkins.
In Australia to attend a global atheist convention, Dawkins describes himself as an evolutionary biologist, author and militant atheist. He became popular around the world in 1976 with his book The Selfish Gene but is best known for his global best seller The God Delusion.
Last appearing on Q&A in March 2010, Dawkins is uncompromising, provocative and controversial. He contends that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that religious faith qualifies as a delusion.

[Journalists] seem to feel let down when they discover that the real people aren't anything like the way they so relentlessly portray us; as if, since they've gone to the trouble of inventing extravagant caricatures of us, we should at least have the decency to live up to them in real life.

[The God Delusion is] absolutely chock-full of things Richard Dawkins really does believe. Which is handy, because it saves everyone the trouble of making them up.
