This is another attempt to keep blogging, in spite of the disgustingly stupid new editor that has been thrust upon us. Our topic today is new post at the creationist blog of the Discovery Institute.
Their title is Lennox Versus Dawkins: “Science and Religion as Alternative Explanations”?, and the author is Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
I am alerting readers to the upcoming event in movie theaters across the country. Against the Tide: Finding God in an Age of Science stars Oxford University mathematician John Lennox.
Oh goodie — a movie staring John Lennox, the creationist mathematician. He’s not officially a Discoveroid, but they like him a lot. Here’s one of our recent posts about him: John Lennox Says Science Is Faith. Klinghoffer says:
There will be one night only when the film is screened — Thursday, November 19. You can and should get your tickets now. [Link omitted!] Here’s a sample [video embedded in the Discoveroids’ post].
You don’t really need that teaser to encourage you to see the movie, do you? No, of course not! Anyway, Klinghoffer then tells us:
The film highlights debates between Professor Lennox, arguing the case for theism, supported by science, against prominent atheists including Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens. The film’s website includes lots of great resources including this gem — the 2008 debate between Dawkins and Lennox, filmed at Oxford’s Natural History Museum!
Lennox versus that intellectual lightweight Dawkins? Wowie — what a movie! Klinghoffer continues:
I think Lennox gets to the heart of a great question by challenging Dawkins on the assumption that science and faith cannot coexist but must be understand as “alternative explanations” for reality. Of course that hopelessly prejudices the question.
Lennox is so much more reasonable than Dawkins! At the end of the post, Klinghoffer introduces another embedded video:
Find the full debate here: “Has Science Buried God?”
And he finishes with this:
In the film, Lennox journeys with actor and interlocutor Kevin Sorbo from Oxford to Jerusalem. It’s very well done. You will enjoy it.
Klinghoffer says you’ll enjoy it and he’s never wrong, so look at the videos and then go to the movie. It promises to be the experience of a lifetime!
