Derick Gillies, of the Free Church of Scotland, said there was an unbalanced debate between those believing in creationism and those believing in evolution.


I find it odd whenever I hear that religious people feel there is unbalanced debate when it comes to issues such as evolution.

Aside from the fact that Professor Dawkins has and continues to take part in debates with religious figures, and that there is always a right to reply, be it through the press, online or in Churches etc. There have also been thousands of years of persecution against people who go against the accepted religion of those in power; be it through believing in a different religion or by having no religion at all. Maybe they would prefer it if we were all silenced, like we would have been in the good old days?
