In my Atlanta talk, I briefly quoted the journalist Melanie Phillips, as a possible source of John Lennox's 'stunning revelation'. Unfortunately, I also attributed another, similar quotation to her, which was in fact from another blogger who had referred to her. This was inexplicably slipshod on my part. I apologise, and have asked Josh to remove the brief section of my talk where I spoke about Melanie Phillips.

Richard


Richard Dawkins at the American Atheists 2009 conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The talk is divided into four sections: 1. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation / 2. Mining the Eddington Concession / 3. God as Science Ficton / 4. Q&A on dealing with Creationists

<!-- <blockquote>* There is a slight discrepancy between the youtube version and the Quicktime download. The youtube version has a transcript of the 'Expelled' interview in place of the footage, while the Quicktime download has the actual video. While I'm certain that Richard's use of the footage in his talk fully qualifies as "Fair Use" under US copyright law, we're going to play it safe and keep the Expelled footage out of our youtube version, since youtube is notorious for removing accounts (and all of a user's videos) and then (maybe) considering whether the copyright infringement claim was justified later. - Josh</blockquote> -->

In front of a packed crowd during his panel titled "My Two Years with Dawkins, Christ and a Small Crab Called Eric" at Comic-Con International in San Diego, artist, writer and indie filmmaker Dave McKean recounted two recent life events on radically opposite ends of the philosophical spectrum: an all-ages book he illustrated with scientist and Atheism proponent Richard Dawkins called "The Magic of Reality," and a film he shot starring Michael Sheen in Port Talbot, Wales called "The Gospel of Us," a modern day interpretation of "The Passion" story chronicling Jesus Christ's final days of life on Earth.
