That final statement is proves why there should be no religious influence in schools at all. Evidence comes from lovers, poets, blah blah blah. What an ignorant statement. People like that have no place in education.

that might be so... as I say, I wish Rev Pritchard had had the time to elaborate on this at length and with greater precision...then let Richard demolish it.

perhaps fudging the word 'evidence' with 'wisdom' alot, but...

Many agree with the sentiment of the reverend's statements - there is a jarring against what they believe - what they believe to be a good source of wisdom, which we dismiss. when we dismiss it in one line as 'ignorance', this contradiction with what they hold to be true, they see it as the reduction ad absurdum in our atheist argument...
