"Richard Dawkins rediscovers his baptismal faith, says he was wrong about God"

An unlikely headline for sure, though not impossible. With all the misinformation (disinformation?) in the press about Prof. Dawkins' agnosticism, an important teaching moment is presenting itself.

Prof. Dawkins could publish a faith-based manifesto rejecting the principles of biology tomorrow yet Darwin's theory of evolution would remain unscathed. That's the point I see being missed.

Religion needs people while Nature certainly doesn't need scientists.
