Great programme and who was the left wing commentator who thought Dawkins' work led to Thatcher's election, as mentioned in it?

Go to: Easter: A day of renewal, from many points of view

Comment 4 by paulmcuk :

Believers in the miracle may be joined by skeptics, nonbelievers, followers of other faiths and once-a-year churchgoers in taking what they will, or what they can, from this season’s feeling of hope and renewal.

Isn't hope and renewal essentially the old pre-christian meaning of easter? Pesky pagans got there first again.

Everyone feels hope and renewal in the spring. You'd have to be brain-dead if, after a walk through the bluebell and daffodil woods, you didn't. Mind you, the climate's hammering the wild flowers this year, which is an issue of more relevance to me than whether some ancient Palestinian rabble rouser has risen or not to 'save' us.

Go to: My usually atheist poetry homepage

Is there a page on this site for published atheist poetry? It seems to be dominated by the natural science brigade (all that 'Poetry of Science' bunkum). What about Hardy's 'God's Funeral'? http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/god-s-funeral/

Atheism should be an aesthetic movement as well as a rational sceptic one. Those natural science chaps are no better than the barbarians at the gate, aesthetically.

what was the difficult question that Krauss asked Dawkins, that Dawkins referred to in his intro?
