← Why Richard Dawkins is still an atheist

Yes, its the age old case of people presuming that if one doesn't rule something out with absolute 100% certainty then one has somehow 'accepted' it wholeheartedly. Very little in science is known with total certainty. Quantum Mechanics has passed every predictive test in 80 years, and is daily used in millions of computers.....yet there is still the tiniest chance ( 1 in 10 ^ 200 or something ) that QM could all be a load of tosh. Admitting that doesn't mean one has suddenly abandonded QM and now believe leprechauns run the universe instead.
