The irony in these instances is thicker than molasses in Alaska. It seems to me that the reason believers like John Lennox misinterpret this or that statement by Dawkins is precisely because he is not strident!

Dawkins always tries to be polite, thoughtful, accommodating, even expressing that he can understand if someone else "could make a reasonably respectable case for that." Inevitably the "faithful" sieze upon such olive branches and then stop listening when he also states that it is "not a case that I would accept."

Isn't it amazing how people hear what they want to hear, and not what is actually expressed.
