Mark, good idea, I'll bear that in mind next time! When I get the chance I'll try and remember what I put for my response.

I suggest anyone wishing to hear a balanced account of the arguments for Christianity, rather than the half-baked nonsense spouted by Dawkins, watch the videos on the following link:

It's all too easy to be pulled in by what Dawkins says because he has his own agenda, and forms his own opinions then tries to justify them rather than weighing up the evidence first. And as these videos show, yes there is evidence for faith.

I'm afraid Dawkins' arguments only stack up if you already believe what he does, because he targets Christianity at its weakest points, not its strongest. If someone argued about atheism in the same way as he does about Christianity, he would immediately dismiss their views as ridiculous.

I don't see how Dawkins' argument adds up: 'Entities capable of designing anything, whether they be human engineers or interstellar aliens, must be complex - and therefore, statistically improbable.'

Surely in order for something to be created, its creator must be more probable than the thing it created otherwise it could not have created it in the first place? The more improbable and complex something is, the more probable it must be that it was created by something.

And even if we are improbable, WE'RE HERE, so surely there is far more of a probability of a God existing than Dawkins gives credit for - I don't see how he can assert that God 'almost certainly doesn't exist', yet at the same time claim that it is religious people who claim to know everything. In order to disprove God you would need to know everything, so there's no way Dawkins could be almost certain that God doesn't exist.

Yes but if people actually waited until they are married to have sex (as the Bible says), then they wouldn't contract AIDS in the first place!!
